November 2014 - Quantum of the Seas to Cruise to Nowhere
Had the pleasure of enjoying the new RCCL ship the Quantum of the Seas, This ship is aesthetically beautiful, the color schemes and the decor throughout the ship are very pleasing to the eye. The size of this ship made you feel like you never left port as not once did it feel like we were out at the open sea, so anyone afraid of rocking this ship was the smoothest i have ever experienced. The entertainment was good, went to Mama Mia, which was a great evening, really Broadway quality, not a lackluster performance, recommend it highly. The comedian was very funny and provided lots of laughs. Starwater, the other production show on te ship was not for me, many people i spoke to liked it, i found it rather boring and walked out after 20 mins. Was able to experience IFly, which was a great experience, with wonderful instructors, a fun experience for anyone young or old. It was too cold to try any of the water activities. The food overall was good, not great. I enjoyed the Cafe 270 and the Grande for dinner, very good, the buffet is a typical; buffet, not to my liking, (i dislike buffets) and very crowded, hard to find seating if you are not there early for breakfast and do not split up as a family as you will have a hard time finding each other. Many venues throughout the ship to grab a quick dessert or slice of pizza, very convenient and good quality. The casino allows smoking and the air is filled with smoke, if you are a non smoker it is tough to bare, it will help you not lose money i guess, they could have done a better job of filtering the air in the Casino. The cabins, i had an outside with a balcony, were a decent size and comfortable, with flat screen TV's. All in all i like the new Quantum and would recommend to someone looking for a large ship with lots to do.
