Quantum of the Seas - Maiden Transatlantic Voyage - Nov 2-10, 2014 - Live Report
Hello everyone! We are the Quantum Live Reporters who will be on the Maiden Transatlantic Voyage from Southampton, England to Cape Liberty, NJ on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas (November 2 through November 10). Hard to believe that we’ll be on this beautiful new ship in just TWO WEEKS! We will use this thread as our Live Reporting thread, so please subscribe to it.

We know that new ships cause a flurry of excitement, and we’re so happy to be some of the first passengers to share all that Quantum of the Seas has to offer. We assembled from our Roll Call because we knew that it would take a small army to cover all that is Quantum of the Seas. We will take a lot of photos, and if you’re on our sailing, and would like to join us, just post to our Roll Call, and we’ll be in touch.

Leading up to our November 2 voyage, we will be counting down toward our cruise date by posting recaps on the many exciting WOWs that Quantum of the Seas as to offer, and also we’ll share more about us as we all bring a little different perspective to how we each approach cruising.

Our Roll Call also has 12 events planned over the eight day sailing, including a Flash Mob proposal, a Bumper Car launch and a Masquerade Dinner at The Grande. We’re going to have a lot of fun!

We look forward to your comments, questions and feedback to make this the BEST Live Report on Cruise Critic yet!

I'm really interested to read this too. I have a friend on that sailing and also have a short trip on Anthem next year so dying to hear all about the new class.

One question - do you intend to your post your pictures with a link to a web hosting site, rather than actually posting them all on here. One of the current Oasis TA 'live' reporters is doing that and it makes for much easier reading without having to scroll through lots of 'quoted' pictures - which some people can't seem to help doing - and which leads to many many pages on a thread.

I confess I have a vested interest since I'll be on the Liberty TA and with onboard internet will probably find it difficult to download a thread with many many photos ;)

Thank you so much b/c I can't decide when I want to go on this new ship or Anthem and would love to see tons of pictures, and any other info., and this would help us all decide, we can't thank you enough for doing this review, I think we're all excited to hear something :)

Looks great, would it be alright with you if when reading it we could post a photo or two that we took, my wife and I will be there with you?

We you soon!
