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.
