  1. Riley Tench is going home. If you don't know who Riley Tench is, he's a crewmember on Quantum who has been living on the ship for the last 5 months due to Covid-19. He's a Youtuber and has several good videos posted, including a cross-video that he did with Chris Wong, another Royal crewmember Youtuber. Riley's video reinforces that it will likely be several months before Royal cruises again. They are sending remaining, non-essential crew members home. Here's Riley's video
  2. Quantum shows a cruise from Tokyo and returning on 4/10/21, then it shows in Alaska. There had been a transpacific showing departure from Tokyo on 4/25 for a 15 day cruise arriving in Seattle. This had been listed on the website for a short time but was removed. Whats going on? Is it real, sold out or what? Thanks for any info
  3. Can anyone please tell me which shows are on board right now (and a little information about them)? TIA!
  4. Just tracking Quantum of the Seas on a cruise ship tracker. The 15 Feb 2020 and 24 Feb 2020 cruises out of Singapore have been cancelled, yet the ship has just left port with a stated destination of Port Klang (would have been enroute to Bangkok before today's cruise was cancelled). Not sure how accurate the destination information is though - I have noticed it can be wrong at times. We are booked on the 4 April 2020 sailing out of Singapore and await news from Royal Caribbean. I have been tracking the ship all week for some clues as to what may happen next. I can understand why the ship has most likely had to vacate it's berth today in Singapore but is it just going to sit at anchor, sit in another port or more importantly, reposition??? The latter of course will have implications on our planned cruise which is why I am tracking her.
  5. I just found an Alaska sailing on Quantum that the dates fit around a convention we have in Seattle, Sept 2021. Itnerary is Seattle, Juneau, Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier, Sitka, Victoria, Seattle. I would love to see Alaska but won't have the finances to do 14 day cruise/land tour. So I figured a peek is better than none. How do you like these ports? Should I look for something to include Ketchikan, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier? How is Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier? Suggestions and opinions appreciated. Thanks, Kaye
  6. Several JS's open on my upcoming Odyssey cruise. Would you pick one of the aft facing ones on deck 12, or those on the hump on 6 - 13 and why did you make your choice?
  7. We are booked on Quantum of the Seas out of Seattle next August. DH is excited about Alaska, less so about the food being mostly Asian inspired. I realize the specialty restaurants are likely to stay the same, but I would think the MDR and Windjammer (if it still exists post Covid) would serve a wider variety of foods on an Alaskan cruise vs cruising out of China. We've only cruised RCCL twice so not really familiar with usual menus and food choices. We are joining cruise friends, so ship was their choice. Any thoughts on what menus are likely to be? Silly question, I know, but enquiring minds and all.... Thanks!
  8. I am booked on the Quantum May 10, 2021 Alaska cruise. But after just going thru the cancellation process because Allure is no longer going to Galveston. I see that Quantum is in Japan until April 25, the internet has a japan \russia\ to Seattle but no mention of it on Royal's website or my big box TA website Wondering if Royal is changing plans for Quantum. Wondering if my Alaska on Quantum is a possible... No go Would love to hear from someone booked on Quantum April 25 2021 😁
  9. Does anyone know if the Quantum of the seas will have STAR Class Royal Suite Program for the Alaska sailings for 2021. They do not have them for the Asian markets and was curious to know if they would implement them for the Alaska sailings?
  10. Over the weekend, I booked three staterooms for my family (6 adults and 4 children) on the Odyssey of the Seas for 2022. All three staterooms are regular balcony rooms, but I'm thinking about changing to the Large Balcony category. The difference in price for all three staterooms for the bigger balcony is around $1000 total (not per cabin). I'm a big fan of balconies and will spend time on it each day. My daughters and their families probably won't spend quite as much time as I will. From reading the description, the Large Balcony staterooms are slightly smaller, but the balcony is bigger. Is the difference in stateroom and balcony size noticeable? Would it be worth the extra expense? Just looking for some opinions. Thanks!
  11. I have never looked at Alaska before so have never tracked prices. I am now considering Alaska, 7 days on Quantum in August 2021. I just wondered if $2300 US total (for 2 inc taxes) for an unobstructed balcony cabin on the higher decks is within the normal price range or is it considered expensive?
  12. I'm reading different things about this online. Does the fitness center have bathrooms that have a steam room available, or is it steam room free where you have to buy a spa pass if you want to use it in the spa? On many cruises that I have been on, there are 2 sets of steam rooms. The fancy ones in the spa, and the complimentary ones in the gym. Employees don't advertise that there are complimentary steam rooms and saunas because they want you to buy a thermal spa package. Has anyone here actually used the fitness center bathroom who can confirm this?
  13. Just curious is there much difference between these 2 ships. Is 1 better than the other. Trying to line my ducks up for 2021.
  14. Never sailed on a Quantum class before. Looking at Odyssey. I’m thinking of sailing next October with the family. Looking at the obstructed balcony 6162. Looks like the balcony is longer, not sure if that’s the case. Also anyone know how bad the obstruction is?
  15. We are on Anthem in a few weeks, and we have a balcony room that has the sofa bed for the third person. Here's my question: How does the bed fold out of the couch? Does anyone have any pictures? What I REALLY want to do with the couch is slide a toddler bed rail into "the crack" in the sofa where I think the bed comes out of the couch....and not actually unfold the whole couch into a bed. Is this possible? Just trying to come up with the best,most space saving sleeping arrangement for my toddler.
  16. I just booked a cruise on Odyssey of the Seas. Since Odyssey doesn't even launch until Nov 2020, I wonder if anyone here has cruised in cabin # 7202 on another Quantum class ship? Any comments on obstruction, location, the good and the bad? Thanks so much!! 😎
  17. We signed into our account last night and found that our March 22, 2021 - 5 night Singapore trip is now showing as a 14 night Singapore to Tokyo. Our travel agent called and we also called Royal and both answers were "the sailing is under review and no decisions have been made." Anyone else have this issue? The change from a 5 night to 14 night is a pretty big deal.
  18. I booked Odyssey this week which I'm super excited about because once I sail a Quantum class I will have sailed on every class in the fleet. (i know technically Odyssey is Ultra-Quantum... but work with me here) Anyway --- I'm picking my cabin, and would love to know your thoughts. Junior suites (my go to) are sold out the week we're going, so all i can do is a balcony. There's a million balcony options. My TA put me in a midship deck 10 balcony (my usual) but there's a handful of rooms on the hump on deck 6. I'm thinking of switching to those. Any feedback on balcony cabin locations on this new ship for me?
  19. I am reconsidering our cabin choice on transatlantic Odyssey of the Seas. Currently booked on deck 7, mid-ship (7202). There is a deck 10 aft cabin available (10304). Price difference is negligible. Which would you do? Thanks!
  20. https://presscenter.rclcorporate.com/press-release/63/quantum-of-the-seas-update/ Well this is not good news for those that were booked. We are not scheduled to sail until the End of May, and looking at the COVID-19 spread/recovery rate, it looks like we might be OK.. Fingers Crossed and comiserations to those that have missed out.
  21. We were scheduled for the Quantum 2/24/20 cruise out of Hong Kong, switched to Singapore, then cancelled. We were told we would have our refund by 2/19 if not sooner. My credit cards lists 5 different credits on 2/14 for cruise fare, port fees, and reimbursed prepaid service charges. It came up $700 short, for a FCC for that amount was put against the original prices of the cabins. The FCC was obtained on 4/11/19 from a nonrefundable deposit for a cruise I cancelled, credit to be used in 12 months. We will be in the Philippines until 4/21/20 and word has it there are no cruises nearby to take. We have two cruises scheduled for May which are already paid in full including daily service charges. Just wondering if anyone knows or has any experience with such a situation. I could use it also for two cruises booked in September, but I have no idea what the policy will be since RCI cancelled the cruise we had intended for the credit. I wrote all this in an email, but I know they have a lot on their plate right now, and calling from boondocks Philippines is not a viable solution. Any and all feedback would be appreciated. Perhaps they would allow me to use it on 3/2/21, the exact same itinerary that was cancelled for 2/24/20. It is the original itinerary, not the one that substituted two Vietnam ports for Okinawa.
  22. The 4 Mar sailing is the next scheduled Quantum of the Seas cruise following the recent cancellation of the 15th and 24th Feb cruises. We are booked on 4 Apr trip and would love to know what 4 Mar passengers are being told. Hope someone can help.
  23. We have two sets of friends from the UK currently in Singapore , they flew from Heathrow last night, when they landed they found out the cruises on Quantum are now cancelled, they are B2B. I am just hearing the news now. They booked fly cruise packages with separate TAs , going to be interesting how this all pans out and how each agent handles the situation but for the moment they had pre cruise stays so are ok for accommodations but they will be flying back to the UK ASAP. so disappointing for all but safety and health is paramount .
  24. Does anyone know if there are any junior suites on Quantum that have an obstructed view? It’s not listed as a room type (unlike balcony rooms, where obstructed view is a separate room grade), however when I booked our guarantee room, they mentioned we could end up with an obstructed view.
  25. Got caught with our pants down here for the 9 night on Quantum out of Singapore. I just landed in Korea making a connection to Singapore and received the cancellation email. 100% refund to the card I purchased it with. Looks like I won't be getting my Grand Suite after all. 😢
