Unbelievable Ship

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Quantum of the Seas is an unbelievably beautiful ship. It is brand new and gorgeous beyond expectations. The artwork throughout is stunning and the public areas are so beautiful.  I stayed in the owner suite and it was so roomy and deluxe. We were treated like royalty by the crew. Being on a ship that was almost 90% asian passengers may be difficult for some people, however, because we were in a suite, the amenities gave us a break from the general population.  The cruise is definitely catering to the Asian market, so do not be surprised to find that things are not like a RCCL that sails out of the US.  The food in the buffet was geared toward Asian tastes but the specialty restaurants were awesome and great fun. I highly recommend staying in a suite to have the ability to work with a concierge and get a little break from the crowds. Well worth the extra price for access to the private dining room alone!

In a few words it was a nightmare. We not only detour from original planned destination but we ended in a comercial port at Korea where everyone was unprepared to received trourists. Food was distastful, got food poison at the ship reported to guest services. 80 % of the passengers were comoplaining protests were made every night in the ship. We were unable to shop or enjoy our staying at the ship. Our suite did not have TV or cable, toilet was leaking or cloged. Fortunately we bought another room and were able to use toilets. Among other unpleasant experiences we had. Please provide an adress were I can write in detail all this terrible experience we had.

This ship,staff and on board Facilities provided the best sea experience We have ever experienced. 

We cruise 3 to 4 times a year and have for years.

The restaurants, food, service and entertainment have been extraordinary.

Nice Repositioning Cruise.

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

 

During this first leg of a repositioning cruise from New Jersey to Shanghai the ship was full, but did not seem so, except for when we were in some of the more popular restaurants or at the blockbuster show (Mama Mia). The dynamic dining had it's problems, but the restaurants had great food, for the most part.

Cabin was a standard balcony and was well laid out. Good service from room attendant. Good variety of entertainment, but not a lot of activities during the day for so  many people - over 4000. Pretty rocky ride during the transatlantic crossing. 

Awful internet service! Only one our iPads had connectivity (very slow) and we purchased a package for two. No reimbursement offers.

First Cruise Experience

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I had an amazing time on my first cruise on Quantum of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean Cruise.  I can't compare it to another cruise, but I can give you my impressions as a first time cruiser.

The ship was beautiful with many great restaurants.  We had amazing food in all of them.  Silk, American Icon Grille and the Grande were my favorites.  I was a bit disappointed in Chops.  I had better steak and beef in the other restaurants which surprised me.  The dynamic dining was not a favorite with regular cruisers, but for me it was like going to a new restaurant every night.

The evening live entertainment was really marvelous, with Mama Mia, the live musical on stage as my favorite.  The cast of this show was super talented and very friendly and engaging when recognized roaming the ship.  Also the bank, Savannah Jack, was extremely talented and fun to see.  The band members were also very friendly when encountered at various venues on the ship.

I was a disappointed in the movie choices on the cruise and also the location of the movies - on a big screen on deck.  I would have liked more current movie choices, shown in the theater at more reasonable times than the late night showings we had.  An afternoon movie would have been nice once in a while.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.  Our stateroom attendant was especially nice and kept our bathroom and stateroom clean and neat at all times.

Our stateroom was very nice.  The bathroom was especially nice, with a great shower.  We did have a bit of a leak from the shower, but with extra towels brought by our stateroom attendant, it was no problem.  The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of closet space and drawer space for our clothing.

As I said, I enjoyed myself completely and will definitely book another cruise sometime in the future, probably with Royal Caribbean.

This was a cruise of contrasts. The ship is beautiful and technologically unmatched in my experience. The dinning was a disappointing experience for the most part. Some of the crew had difficulty with english beyond a basic understanding. While I enjoyed the Ifly, the Northstar and the bumper cars, I probably would not chose this style of cruising for future cruises based on the dinning experience. I do not regret my one time experience. If they change the dinning to a  more tradional style I would be interested in trying it again.

Good cruise - not sure about the dining rooms vs a main dining room.  But we were never turned away from a restaurant due to no reservation, though we do eat early (6-6:30).  

Bugs me that they reserve so much prime space around the main pool for smokers.  If you want to get out of the sun for awhile you have to scrounge.  Half or one side would be ample.

My experience on Royal Caribbean's Quantum on the Seas

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship, WoW it was magnificent. My experience at the pier was great. It took us ten minutes from our arrival until we got on board. As far as I could see, there was no confusion compared to my other cruise with this cruise line and four with Carnival Cruise Lines. Our balcony on the twelve floor was roomy and spectacular.

The restaurants and the food were great. I liked being able to eat at the restaurant of my choice and the option of eating at world class restaurants for a reasonable price. The smart electronics was also very enjoyable. The shows were spectacular. You may not be able to book on the Quantum, but the Anthem of the Seas is on its way.

A different kind of cruise.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The internet connection is the best. Probably pricey for many but with out complaints by those who used it. The resturants are a different story. Many we would chose not to go back to. The food was not as good or as much variety as we would have hoped for. Because you dine in a different resturant you do not get to know your wait staff or fellow cruisers. When we asked officers about feedback they indicate that it was about 50/50 pos and neg response. We dined in the Grande on two different occasions and will not return. The service was not terrible but not what you would hope for and the food left something to be desired. Chops is really very good as it is on many others ships and we will return there. There are more resturants we did not like that one we did. Johnny Rockets is not a regular set up. It is only food to go. There is out side seating but it is limited with no wait staff. We like the food there.   This ship is being prepared to be sent to China. Many of the staff seem to be in training and the language is difficult at times. I would say that they are all nice and try to be helpful but have challenges.  Because the same class of ship will be sailing soon I would suggest that if you want a different experience this would be a good chance to have it. If you prefer a more traditional experience it probably won't  be your cup of tea.  The staff in the concierge club,Mario and Filip are first rate and Captain Felix is the right person for this ship. Wendy Kirby is, in my opinion, the best loyality abassador in the Crown and Anchor Society,

Make reservations for activities early to get the time you want. Book online for all the events you can. Makes for a smooth process.

We made all of our reservations before we left on the cruise which left us more time to enjoy the ships activities rather than waiting on line to go to dinner or shows. The major problem we had was with the website for making these reservations - we had to call Royal Caribbean several times.
