November 2014 - Quantum of the Seas to Cruise to Nowhere
The Quantum overall is a beautiful ship and full of innovation. It's certainly set up for those that love technology. The check-in process at the pier was a breeze and our keycard was waiting for us right outside our cabin door with our WOW bands located inside our cabin so you have the option of either just using the standard card or the wristband for one less thing to carry around on-board.
I highly recommend pre-reserving show times and dinner reservations in advance online. We made reservations for StarWater and dinner for both nights on-board (Chic and American Icon) and it certainly makes a difference to ensure your on-board experience is stress free. There is no main dining room on-board, it's all dynamic dining so it's something to adjust for those who are used to the traditional main dining experience.
I personally didn't experience North Star or iFly but we did do bumper cars up in the SeaPlex which was fun. There's plenty to do to keep kids and kids at heart entertained for hours. We didn't see MamaMia but I heard nothing but good things from friends on-board. The comedian was entertaining and there were several live music and dancing options for the late night crowd. Two70 is a beautiful area of the ship and turns into a late night dance club.
There were definitely some technology and service challenges onboard but it was also an inaugural sailing. Overall it was a great experience.
