  1. We are sailing 8/22/21 on the Odyssey. We are booked in a balcony but have a Royal Up Bid in for a Grand Suite. It looks like Odyssey has a Concierge Club vs a Suite Lounge. The only time I have been in Sky Class before, it was on the Symphony and there was a Suite Lounge with a limited open bar basically open all day. Are the Concierge Club open bar hours just during happy hour or are they more like the Oasis Class and open all day? Also who is normally allowed into Concierge Club? Is it just Suite guests & Pinnacles or are Diamond + welcome as well? Thanks!
  2. I think I'd hold off and cruise at a later date LOL (No shows get a full refund). According to Singapore Cruise Society, which cites an email sent by Royal Caribbean International to guests departing on the Quantum of the Seas’ Ocean Getaway voyages between July 23 and Aug. 16, the sailings’ guest capacity will be reduced to 25 percent. Group sizes will be limited to two guests, and guests from the same households may travel in the same stateroom but will be required to stick to a maximum of two per group while in public areas. Restaurants and bars will be c
  3. Does anyone know what the obstruction is on this cabin? It’s the only one on deck 7 center ship port side that’s obstructed. I know the lifeboats obstruct the deck below and that there are some deck 7 obstructions on other Quantum class ships, but this is the only one on Quantum. I can’t find any info on it. Is that a mistake on the deck plan or is there really a problem with the view? Any input appreciated!
  4. 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?
  5. Where is comedy and karaoke taking place on the new Odyssey? I don't see any indication on the deck map. Also where is the Teen club located. (Perhaps I am looking at the wrong deck maps) Sailing Jan 2nd
  6. "Due to ongoing uncertainty with the re-opening of international borders, as well as subsequent changes to their global return to service, Royal Caribbean has made a few adjustments to their upcoming itinerary offerings. Unfortunately, as a result of these changes, Royal Caribbean has cancelled additional sailings onboard Ovation of the Seas, Quantum of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas, including your upcoming cruise vacation. Royal Caribbean is offering the following options for impacted sailings: ?100% Refund ?125% Future Cruise Credit"
  7. I’m looking at an Australian cruise this December on the Ovation. This is the first time I’ve ever looked at a cruise on a Quantum Class ship. And something about the ship just leaves me cold. I’ve read reviews, looked at videos and nothing is grabbing me. This is an emotional feeling, there’s nothing practical I can point to. Any fans of these ships willing to tell me what they love (or even like) about them? Note: Some of you may be tempted to tell me the point is moot as this cruise will undoubtably be cancelled. While I appreciate your good intentions, don’t. Indulge
  8. Can anyone confirm that the separate bathtub in the bathroom in the Owners Suite is a Jacuzzi bathtub? Is there a link to the floor plan of the various staterooms aboard the Quantum? Thanks.
  9. We’re looking at booking an Alaskan trip next year. Would you suggest the Radiance of the Seas or the Quantum of the Seas as a better ship for the trip? Which ship has nicer rooms (we’re interested in a balcony room)? Which has better dining and entertainment (not interested in the kids level activities)? Thanks!
  10. Does anyone know if there has been any changes to the way you book shows and entertainment own Oasis and Quantum Class? Specifically looking for Symphony if that matters. Its been awhile since I was on Anthem and Harmony. When I was on them, you booked most of the shows through the cruise planner. I was recently told by a RC CS Rep that all shows are now booked after boarding, That just doesn't sound right to me. Nothing against the CS Rep, but their info isn't always accurate
  11. How are the beds placed in the cabin of a balcony cabin on this class of ships?. I know on the Celebrity ships they alternate bed by bath, next cabin bed by balcony. I prefer the bed by the bath. If they alternate, how can I tell this on the ship diagram? Many thanks
  12. Hi all- We've booked this Alaskan cruise and I am wondering if we'll always be within sight of land? A buddy of mine mentioned that he thought that might be the case. Can anyone tell me for sure? The itinerary is: Seattle - Ketchikan - Sitka - Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier - Juneau - Victoria, BC - Seattle Thanks.
  13. My DH and I are thinking of booking a suite for our 35th anniversary. I am trying to find out what all the perks would be for an Owner's Suite. Their website is very confusing. Specifically, is the beverage package included in the room price? If not, what suite would we need to book. TIA
  14. The wife has put up with me for almost 29 years and I thought it'd be nice to book a 30th anniversary cruise for next June, 2022. We're looking at two options: 7-night Alaska cruise out of Seattle on Quantum 7-night Scandinavia/Russia cruise out of Stockholm, Sweden on Voyager On either we'd go with a Junior Suite. This would be our fourth cruise with RCI, but the first three have all been in the Caribbean. So, if anyone has done one or the other (or both even better) I'd sure like your input, with any pics to boot! Oh, and one other question: is it worth the sig
  15. One of my favorite things to do on a cruise is to go to the very prow of the ship early in the morning to watch the sunrise. I know I could access the bow on Brilliance, I think I could on Freedom, I know I could not on Oasis, but will I be able to on Quantum? Thanks.
  16. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/25008-royal-caribbean-makes-key-onboard-changes-on-quantum-due-to-singapore-warning.html All restaurants are closed and guests will get room service options or "grab and go" from select restaurants aboard. Limitations in dining where you can only eat inside your cabin or grabbing a premade sandwich seems pretty depressing to me. Might as well stay at home.
  17. Hello all! So I'll be sailing on Quantum in a month, and some seemed interested to follow. So I'll be doing a semi-live report, can't guarantee that I'll be on every hour, but I'll try at least twice a day to update you guys! This is also my first live report, so bear with me if its not as expected! I'll be in a Oceanview Balcony Cabin. If you have any questions please let me know, and I'll try my best to reply those that i am able to answer with confidence! Thanks Ya'll!
  18. I was on Quantum November 18, 2014 back to back with the November 21 2014. I remember the Magenta bear, but forgot her name. I'm not sure that the name stuck when it was repositioned, anybody remembers the name?
  19. Funny how this coincides with April fools, but this sounds rather legitimate. It its true, that's good! https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.*****.com%2F2021%2F03%2F31%2Froyal-caribbean-extends-quantum-of-the-seas-singapore-season%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1f_CDX3AGGiY7DIKL82zgIJLXlBVZJ4YY8LZQ3jXXSlUZAiSKXIl3Lzmk&h=AT24Phw1N8aDy5CPlVXBgMX71kNLqI0AW70bPGqfHw_ZPNRf8E8AdWjXqw4q5ThS06BxO-Akeql4yuKxfYNSErZV8A8JGk0BRNdpl2hy8jqSE500milPnJHhxBwq-w40W-eOXw&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT0AVN3KX5URfKWfskLJbyQ1FK-povIw7vIyHdNRBF50BCho7UmkWtwr94wn0G8GXJQ-yN_J6IO7v41Q2tO5VD0LXHPiT1GrQ7pVuPh71MR_NQwvT
  20. Does anyone have experience with the "Ocean View with Large Balcony" staterooms - in particular their actual size compared to a standard Ocean View Balcony cabin? These cabins are quoted as 177sq ft, as opposed to 198sq ft for a standard balcony - the 177sq ft sounds more like the smaller "deluxe", vs "superior" staterooms in older cabin descriptions. The deck plans (for what they are worth) seem to indicate the cabins are the same size. We have stayed in both Superior and Deluxe before (on older ships), and noticed the difference (the couch area was noticeably smaller). We are
  21. Does anyone have any photos of (or have stayed in) the Ocean View Balcony cabin 12250 or 12650 on Quantum class ships? I've currently got 12250 held for a cruise on Ovation because, on the deck plans, it looks like the balcony is slightly larger than regular balconies. However I know deck plans are not always accurate. Or does anyone have a photo of these cabins on decks 13, 11, 10, 9, 8 or 7? e.g. 11250 or 11650. Any info about these cabins will be much appreciated. Thanks 🙂
  22. Looking at Quantum for a SEP 2022 Alaskan cruise. This would be our 6th cruise to AK (have done 2 Celebrity, 2 PCL & 1 HAL to AK). We love PCL for AK, but the 2022 prices are much higher. After a little research, for Quantum it looks like the only way to see outside while sailing on sea days is on deck five, on the outside deck. i.e., no interior lounge area to sit in with windows all around, like on our PCL (Skywalkers) and HAL (Crow's Nest) AK cruises. Is that correct? And just how obstructed are the obstructed balcony cabins? Also, any honest opinions re: the interior cabins with
  23. Over the past year and A half I’ve been fortunate to sail QoS 3 times. Once before the pandemic and twice on cruises to nowhere (5n, 4n & 3n respectively). On our first sailing we ate in the MDR and did a single night at Wonderland. The 2nd cruise was a sky class suite with access to Costal Kitchen and the 3rd we did the Unlimited Dining Plan and took full advantage of the fact it was all sea days and ate in Specialty restaurants for lunch and dinner Skipping to my final thoughts I’d take Costal Kitchen over Specialty Restaurants and was perfectly happy in the MDR.
  24. On Quantum now and we haven’t left port yet, they’ve just re-connected the boarding bridge and a team of what looks like medical personnel in full PPE just got on with a stretcher... I doubt it’s Covid, since we haven’t heard anything from the crew, and the crew on deck talking with them don’t seem to be in PPE... hope it’s nothing serious...
  25. This is February 2021 cruise to nowhere on the Quantum of the Seas. 1. The ship is sailing with the required 50% capacity limit set. 2. The weather doesn't look great yet the interior venues on the ship look almost empty, compared to 100% capacity on a rainy day. 3. It seems like every venue normally operated on a full capacity cruise is operational. ===================================================================================== I can't imagine a ship operating with 60% capacity (that is RCCL'S stated occupancy where the ship will m
