Wonderful except for our cabin. People booking the Quantum Class ships should stay away from the area around 13680 to 90. The rooms are obstructed by a very large overhang and poles. Royal Caribbean will do nothing about it.

The cabin itself was comfortable and clean. We paid for an extra large balcony and did not enjoy it one day due to the obstructed views. It was horrible!!!!!
