We will not write too much about the horrible Immigration to China on 4th of October. We needed 7 hours after a long distance flight from Europe to get the 144 hours Visa and to find the luggagev( which was elsewhere) and then getting a shuttle to our hotel to start the 2 days program in Beijing before cruise started on October 7th. It was not a good entrance policy of China to send so many people home. Ur was really like a nightmare to experience the weeping and horrifying people who were prevented from entering without giving any reason, even though they had booked hotel proof and cruise.. Certainly not a dsplomatic and certainly even promising future method of China to promote for Chinese tourism But now the cruise: we wrote the very bad reviews before we started. We can say, we experienced the Quantum very differently. Mostly British, Germans, Americans and Australiens we're onboard. A very small group of Chinese travellers. The service was always very good. The crew members were very friendly, helpfully and kind and attentively. We stopped the visit if Windjammer at once. It was always full and loud, tried the some mornings having breakfast in one of the main restaurants. That was good but needed more time to get all orders completed. Not good for days worth excursions. So we just did not enjoy the small Solarium Bistro restaurant. That was perfect. Omelette or eggs over easy were brought to the table and other staff could found in the buffet. Tee, coffee, Juice werde served as well but also in self-service. In the Grande Restaurant we had our dinner, first course. Wonderfully because mostly less then 40% guests.. very good service. Our waiter was the lovely Guiyan with her second waiter Kevin. Both brilliant, full if energy, always attentively. We enjoyed the good variety of offers in meals well arranged and hit served. Very good. Our Cabin attendant was perfect. Thanks Man( cabine number 11612. The cabin was good maintained. Room enough for us. Good balcony often used. We are early riser. So we always found layers in the solarium deck. Wonderfully and quiet.But it is a bad habit to lay out towels and block couches without using them. We normally go our personal way with excursions. This time we booked for Taipei, Hongkong, Hue and Saigon. . All Tours organised from RCL where perfect. Good guides, good busses and driver, water, raincoats and mass of informations.. The tours were worth the money. Fukuoka we did alone. For us in walking distance to make a sightstiour around the temples. In Singapore as well we made our one tour with MRT and bus. Wonderful town. The time in Hongkong was too short. iIt was the captain's decision not to risk anything because of the demonstrations that started again in the evening. After all, we saw the Hong Kong skyline leaving at night. Hopefully we can come back in an open and peaceful Hongkong! We can only feel positive. Only the drinks packages are unreasonably expensive and correspondingly just individual drinks .. This is a pity and with celebrity ider my ship erhebluch better regulated.. The entertainment program was absolutely brilliant. Inkx, Aussie Boys, Darren Day, Barricade Boys- all 10 points. The lectures of Andrew Gregson a Must for us. interesting and witty with wit and knowledge

Cruise was much better than thought before we started
