As of 19 October 2014, 355 guests have signed up for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Critic Meet & Mingle for the Quantum Of The Seas sailing on 02-Nov-2014.

At the moment though we do not know where our themed M&M will take place.

We decided to pick a theme for our M&M which is UK-USA, Red & White & Blue, this theme will carry on through some of the events we have planned.

There will be a few surprises along the way, some even my fellow Quantum Launchers do not know about

Let the party begin and keep those Lemon Drops coming Bartender

I am also subscribing. Even though we don't have plans for the Quantum or Anthem (yet) we are booked on the Oasis in May and will be experiencing Dynamic Dining with a group of 10. We will be interested to see how it all works for you. Have things worked out better for the reservation system as of late or are people still having problems reserving their desired times?

This is such a good idea to have one LIVE report with multiple reporters! Thank you n advance.

OK....I do not come on CC all that much, just here and there especially when we get closer to cruising. So when everybody says " Subscribing " what does that really mean? Do they get alerts somehow or do they just come on to CC and read the thread all day ?

Thanks

Hi again, looking forward to hearing all of the GOOD on the Quantum.
We will be near you on the Adventurer OTS.......Will we be in the same Dock Area in SouthHampton? I hope so because I would love to grab some pictures and I am hoping we are next to each other to hopefully hear a Horn battle? I hope RCL will read this to do a little something for all of the Nearly 8000 passengers on the 2 ships. Have Fun! I know we are going to have a Blast!

Really EXCITED for all of you, on this first cruise! We're scheduled for 1/11/15, so will be intently reading everything you post! Hope to see LOTS of pictures. Very interested in seeing cabin 7114 or similar (obstructed balcony). Hoping to see the Diamond Lounge, too!

Sure there'll be lots of problems they'll have to adjust, but just remember, you're on a FANTASTIC cruise ship & will have a WONDERFUL time! Keep us all posted!
