Quantum was a fine ship and we had a great time, but there were only 1500 passengers out of over 4500 capacity. Most of the venues were very quiet so I feel like we missed out on the excitement of a more crowded ship. I would definitely cruise on it again - but after things quiet down a bit.
I'm following this with great interest! Like you, we were scheduled on Quantum Feb 15. In fact, we were B2B on the previous cruise when we got the cancellation notice. We opted to go home, but we know at least one family from the cruise (John and family) that decided to join your cruise in Dubai. I'm glad it is working out so well - enjoy the rest of the cruise!
