  1. From what i read it will take a capacity of fourteen people a time . Would def think about prebooking with a group of you 🙂
  2. Glad to hear queue jumping not an issue, really have to query how Royal justifies charging for the onboard activities in some parts of the world and not others. I am looking forward to my cruise, the experience of travelling in a different part of the world and really keen to explore The Quantum.
  3. Haha I agree about the coffee, last I was on Royal the coffee was not bad. The last Princess cruise I did the coffee had the flavour of wheatbix . I have prebooked the Nth Star for 6.30 on departure night, hoping its a nice time of the evening to do it. .
  4. FYI For anyone following this thread. Three weeks till cruise and just had the North Star appear under paying activities on my Planner. $10.96 ea. Looks like it is a “culturally enriching” cruise where everything costs. Still If queueing queue jumping etc is an issue on these cruises I would rather pay the nominal amount and hopefully minimise the issues. Really hoping that being a Culturally enriching cruise doesnt mean they wont have the newly introduced Vegan Menu
  5. Hi cruising on Quantum of the seas 16/11 desperately hoping they have introduced the new Vegan Menu in the main dining rooms. It was meant to start in all ships from Late August, but hearing reports of some ships not having it available. Is there anyone cruising before then who can ask if the New Vegan menu is being offered.

  7. We have sailed on Celebrity, Royal Carribean, Princess and P&O multiple times. (In mini suites, balconies and ocean views) last year one of our cruises was a 7 night cruise to the Sth Pacific on Pacific Dawn in an Ocean View Cabin. We had a great time and would definitely go again if the price is right, we paid just over $600pp. The food does not match Celebrity or Princess and its not a luxury ship but the price of the cruise was probably half what i pay to go on those other lines and it was definitely value for money. We had fun we relaxed and we got looked after for seven nights while being on the seas absolutely go again if it was the right price.
  8. Thanks for the replies, they have reassured me, we ended up booking a five day 5 NIGHT SPICE OF SOUTHEAST ASIA CRUISE. Leaving & returning to Singapore. Will be a whole new experience for me. It is a shame Royal have decided to charge for activities that are apparently free of charge in other parts of the world but I decided to just get ahead of it(hoping to avoid queues) and prebook the activities on my Cruise Planner. Unfortunately although the email I have been sent tells me they will be available to book through Cruise Planner they are nowhere to be seen 🤔. I do find it quite strangely comical that Royal are advising me that due to the cruise being a Culturally Enriching Cruise they have put a price on free activities .
  9. I received an email today to inform me that my cruise is a culturally enriching cruise and to be aware that the entertainment etc will be spoken in the main passengers language, chinese. Also informing me quote “Due to the high demand for activities on Culturally Enriching cruises, there is a minimal charge in order to reduce waiting times on Ripcord® by iFly®, North Star®, and SkyPad” Seems like cruising from Singapore on this ship may be very similar to cruising. From China?
  10. My daughter and i are spending five nights in Singapore, Almost booked an add on spur of the moment five day cruise from Singapore on the Quantum but then read the very bad reviews based on its China sailings pretty much saying if you are a Westerner dont do it Is the ship experience going to be the same when its based in Singapore? Will anything be altered before it starts its Singapore season. Complaints were things like Lack of coffee available (i really neeed my coffee) no specialty coffees available All Food only catering for the Asian Market Things that dont normally cost having a cost or only available for suite guests Pushing Shoving Arguing English speaking tours and activities canceled , reviews basically saying ship totally catering to Asian Market only and if you are a Westerner..find a different ship/company. Has me a bit concerned as I am not familiar with that area of the world ..so would leaving from Singapore be the same sort of cruising ?
  11. Darwin to Singapore Departing Darwin Monday, 05 August 2019 8 Nights Pacific Dawn Up To $100 Onboard Credit Twin From $571 pp Quad From $666 pp
  12. Curious as to how it works if you cancel your cruise? Do you lose your coins and redeemed obc reward? . In Australia we cant reprice the cruise we have to cancel and rebook if the price goes down. I noticed the price on my cruise had gone under what i paid but still at this point more advantageous to keep my booking as i have 2 x $100 OBC rewards. ..but will be sad if it gets to the point Where I have just wasted my points.
  13. Hi, is there a Monkey bar on the Pacific Explorer or do you book Angelos and Dragon Lady somewhere else on board? On boarding Aria and Eden we always made straight for the Monkey Bar to make reservations.
  14. Looking for this and not finding the price anywhere? Is it their official site?
