After sailing on Mariner of the Seas and Voyager of the seas I had sort of sworn off large ships. Just too big, too many passengers, etc. When this cruise on Quantum of the Seas came up, I was intrigued though and so, after convincing 3 other friends, we signed up.
We all had single cabins and to start with. 2 had interior cabins and 2 had balconies, all near each other. I had an interior but as the cruise drew near I saw a balcony cabin open up so I called my TA and snagged it for the same price as my interior! It also had a huge balcony, over 100 sq ft.
We arrived at the cruise terminal in Singapore about noon. There were zillions of people around as both Quantum and Voyager were sailing the same day. I was not sure how long it would take to get on the ship. Luckily, after security, 20 minutes, the check in was painless and we were on the ship in another 10 minutes. Fabulous!
