Unbelievable Ship

Sail Date: March 12, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Quantum of the Seas is an unbelievably beautiful ship. It is brand new and gorgeous beyond expectations. The artwork throughout is stunning and the public areas are so beautiful.  I stayed in the owner suite and it was so roomy and deluxe. We were treated like royalty by the crew. Being on a ship that was almost 90% asian passengers may be difficult for some people, however, because we were in a suite, the amenities gave us a break from the general population.  The cruise is definitely catering to the Asian market, so do not be surprised to find that things are not like a RCCL that sails out of the US.  The food in the buffet was geared toward Asian tastes but the specialty restaurants were awesome and great fun. I highly recommend staying in a suite to have the ability to work with a concierge and get a little break from the crowds. Well worth the extra price for access to the private dining room alone!

Cabin / Stateroom
I stayed in the owners suite and it was spacious and gorgeous. There was a full sized dining table, pull out sectional couch, flat screen TV and a separate bathroom. The bedroom was a comfortable king sized bed, full bathtub and separate shower and 2 sinks. The balcony was beautiful but it was too cold to enjoy it. The cabin was almost too big for us as we really didnt sit around in the room watching TV. Perhaps a grand suite would be fine in size as long as you get the amenities of being in a suite. I know that a junior suite does not qualify for this most important benefit.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Hectic embarkation and disembarkation. Almost overwhelming with the amount of people rushing around!
Ship Quality
I have never seen such a beautiful ship. The quality of everything was beyond my expectations
Destinations and Excursions
Not alot of information was given about excursions and there was not a human to talk to about them. Everything was booked on an Ipad.
Onboard Activities
So much to do, gorgeous shopping, loveliest artwork.
Children's Programs
Dont have kids but there were alot of things for the kids to do including roller skating and bumper cars!
Great acrobatic shows. The public areas for entertainment were unbelievable. Cool robotics and LED light shows.
Service and Staff
Loved our concierge Bing Bai. She literally was the best thing on the whole cruise. She made our experience special. I enjoyed all of the attention from the officers and appreciated seeing the Captain many times during the voyage.
Food and Dining
Buffet is geared towards Asian tastes. Jamie Oliver's restaurant was awesome.
Shanghai, China
Hiroshima, Japan
Confusing to take the train to the peace memorial. Make sure you have your Yen ready to go as there is no money exchange there, except for a bank down the street from the train station.
Yokohama (Tokyo), Japan
We booked Tokyo on your own excursion. About 1 hour on tour bus. Definitely not long enough time spent in Tokyo on this port day.
Kobe (Kyoto), Japan
Took the Osaka on your own excursion. 1 hour on the bus to Osaka. Osaka was the highlight of the whole trip. So much shopping and food! I know others said Kobe was just ok, so choose to go to Osaka!


If you can afford a suite and you are not a fan of crowds, make sure you book a suite. It is so worth it!
