We just got back from an 8 night cruise on the quantum of the seas.  I have been on many cruise with 5 different cruise lines. This was one of the poorest ones I have been on.  The quality of food on the free restaurants was awful.  The restaurants we had to pay for were very good.  I wonder if they do that on purpose?  We were on an 8 night cruise, they had shows for only 5 of those nights.  All the cruises I have ever been on had shows every night of the cruise.  We were at sea for 4 full days and 2 half days and there was no musice anywhere on board during the day or things going on during the day around the ship.  It will be a long time before I go on royal carribean again.

Ship Quality
The ship was beautiful and very clean.
Food and Dining
The buffet had the same food everyday and the free restaurants had the poorest food I have ever tasted.
Service and Staff
The service was ok. There are not many waiters or bar staff on board so tables were left dirty for a along time.
There was not enough entrainment on board, especially during the day.
Children's Programs Not applicable
Onboard Activities
There was a lack of on board activities, especially during the day and if you did not want to wait on lines to do anything in the seaplex
Destinations and Excursions
The Bahamas was nice as was their own private island, coco cay. The only thing was that the food was covered in flies. Pretty disgusting.
Cabin / Stateroom
Beautiful cabin and our Stewart was excellent
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Very confusing trying to register to get on board
Port Canaveral, Florida
Did not go out of the pier
Nassau, Bahamas
Things were easy enough to get to Atlantis
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
The tenders took a long time to board because they hold many people and they wait to fill up the tender completely.


My recommendation is to avoid this ship, but if you decide to go, make your reservations for everything as soon as you make your booking. Plan on eating in the specialty restaurants . Their food is a bit better . It will be a while before I spend my money on a royal Caribbean ship again.
