Quantum of the Seas is indeed a lovely ship with new technology and features. However, it wasn't always a pleasant experience. I would have given the cruise 2 stars if I hadn't booked a Junior Suite. At embarkation, the crowds were huge as the terminal opened. There are porters outside and if you are either a foreigner, suite guest, or a member of Crown and Anchor, then you will be led straight to the front of the line for check in all the way to ship. Dining was also really bad in the main dining rooms and buffet, but the specialty restaurants, Café@Two70, Cafe Promenade, SeaPlex Dog House, and the suite-exclusive Coastal Kitchen (Carla is a great server) were amazing. Also note that the use of Solarium and breakfast at the Bistro is for suite guests only. I personally liked all the entertainment onboard, the FlowRider and climbing walls aren't very popular so you can get numerous turns. On the other hand, Xbox, ping pong, foosball, and bumper cars are always packed and some groups stay for hours at a time. The crowds didn't bother me very much until the penultimate night of the cruise when there was a fight between 2 Chinese men in the theatre and security took 30 minutes to show up. To recap, the cruise is very cheap, but you get what you pay for.
