The breakfast in the dining room was excellent. We went there the last 2 days...wish we had done it sooner.

Don't get in a hurry to buy gifts or extra services (spa, upgraded dining, etc.) Each night you will get a sheet outlining the next day's activities that will have specials - like half price spa day! Significant savings.

If you are able to do self deboarding, do it. We were at our cars by 8:15 am

Don't buy drink passes till you get on the ship, you can buy them daily for the same price and be aware the ship will run out of bottled water but you can bring it on at each port. Free sandwiches muffins brownies and pizza along with free water and iced tea on deck 5,very good service and food.

Catch her this year before she moves south and the prices go up to sail the Quantum.

Must attend the entertainment and game show. Besides, have great fund on Deck 5.

When getting back on the ship, walk up ONE deck (if you can) and walk over to the elevators on the other side - you won't have any wait!

The only tip I would suggest is to get to the port early - as the lines get very long as the day goes on.

Look around all of the lounges and find the most comfortable chairs if you need a taller chair and one that has an upright back. Talk with the excursion desk and find out all of the information you need to help you leave and return to the ship. Some may want a wheelchair for help.

Bring a jacket with a hood and be careful with the activity itinerary very inaccurate.

Don't miss the Ice Show and the Mystery Dinner! Laundry is not one day service, more like 2-3 days so plan accordingly. Great deals on excursions by booking early, wink wink. I booked online prior to departure and was a great move on my part.

I think for the slight upcharges, the dinner meals are truly like fine restaurants.

Even though the ship was scheduled to go into dry harbor after the next cruise, it was so well maintained and luxurious. Al personnel seemed to desire to make sure that we all had a great time.

Lots of shopping on the Promenade (Deck 5)!

Main dining room breakfasts are going to take a long time and the food will not be pleasing however lunches are good there and provide a nice alternative to the windjammer. Snacks are limited at the Cafe Promenade. We do not like the pizza at all. I suspect they don't make them on board.

Carry your own luggage off the ship and you save huge time. We arrived back in Pa. by 10:00am

Don't miss the ice show! Try the dining room for meals rather than the buffet.

Don't eat in the Windjammer too crowded and pushy people.
