Worst Cruise Yet

How to ruin a great ship, add lots of dinning rooms, charge extra for most, add more reservations, provide lousy service, call it dynamic dinning. Be aware menus repeat after only a few days in the complimentary ...

My terribly romantic images of cruising vs. the cruise business

This is a brand new, very sophisticated ship. Some things work really well and some don't. Unsurprisingly the most impressive bright spots I recall involve crew members doing a particularly good job. The technology ...

First cruise, first review; no disappointments for us.

This was our first cruise and we had watched the ship being built. We had heard all the promises, but were sceptical it would all be ready as it was only delivered to RCCI 6 days before. So here goes. Embarkation ...

Balanced Review of Quantum's Maiden Voyage 11/2-11/10/2014

We are back from a fantastic cruise on the Quantum of the Seas! This was cruise #23 for me. We've sailed on all the major lines before RCL, Celebrity, Carnival, Disney, Norwegian, Princess, MSC and HAL. We've also ...

An Adventrue

This was a Maiden Voyage. So we went with an attitude of "This is an Adventure" and I am privileged to help a new ship come to life. Remarkably RCCi invited (yes we paid but we were invited) to go on a first cruise ...

Too much technology, lack of human touch

Why did they make it more complicated?

Sailed the maiden Voyage of QUANTUM and enjoyed the trip overall. The seas were quite rough through most of the cruise with winds reaching up to 90 MPH on some days (and nights). There were quite a few seasick ...

Quackers for Quantum!

Let's start off with an important caveat: This was the maiden voyage of Quantum so some of the things that happened on our cruise will hopefully not be indicitative of the new Quantum class product. I feel it only ...

Transatlantic on the Celebrity Quantum.

Yes, let’s start with the ship herself. She is not a RCI ship in look or feel, she has the stunning class, style, décor and charisma of an X ship (namely the Solstice class). From the stylish two tier shopping ...

There were glitches getting on the ship but it was to be expected since we were the first revenue passengers. Once on the ship it was amazing. Very elegantly beautifully designed with a lot of smart technology. Some ...

Failure to WOW

Even the future cruise discount and $300 onboard credit can't make up for the many failures of the maiden voyage. It took over an hour of standing to get checked in and same to get off. The highly anticipated and ...

Catastrophe of the Seas

I was on the maiden voyage and it was a "Wow" experience all right, but not what USA Today reported in today's glowing review. From the 2-3 hour wait to get on the ship due to the total technological breakdown of ...

A fully loaded 8 cylinder Mercedes Benz that only manages to fire on 6

Unlike other reviewers, the check-in went very quickly, but we arrived at 1.30, and most of the problems were then over. Our cabin was an inside with a virtual balcony. As it was a transatlantic, it was nothing ...

This, at first, is going to sound like a negative review, but make no mistake, in spite of the numerous glitches, the Quantum of the Seas is an amazing ship and the much-hyped “WOW” is an understatement. My ...
