So where is Quantum of the Seas heading now??


Recommended Posts

*****?? Not due in Singapore for days according to her destination info. I think we will know over the next 48 hrs what is happening i.e. heading to LA, Singapore or elsewhere. I understand they are now offering FCC for next sailing 4 Mar. I wonder if this is a phased approach to a cancellation - fill up as many cabins as possible on other cruises before ultimate cancellation.

Curious where you have heard that March 4th Sailing?  We are booked and have yet to hear anything. Thanks!

It was a posting on the Facebook group “Quantum of the Seas”

According to a post on a social site that follows quantum a person linked to a post by the cruise director.  It’s been posted the Quantum is on a 18 day sail to nowhere and hopefully will dock in Singapore.  So basically the two 9 days became a crew only cruise.   
 

I’m assuming this is to show the ship doesn’t have any sick crew and then if conditions improve continue to sail out of Singapore.  If things don’t improve it’s anyone’s guess what happens next.

Last position report as of about 35 minutes ago:

AIS still reports arriving in Singapore on 2/23 (2/24 local).   That may be to accept fuel and supplies but not passengers.  She had a scheduled stop on 2/24 before CV occurred so they are possibly using that scheduled port time since it's already on the books.

Corona virus seems to not be getting the news coverage it was so I think RC are going to resume business as usual for quantum starting 4th March 

 

I am inclined to agree.  Quantum still continues on its cruise to nowhere 🙄.  She was heading SW a few hours ago but now turned NW again - just killing time by the look of it.  Interesting that she sailed towards both Penang and Phuket as if to make port but then sailed on past 🤔.

 

Someone has posted on Facebook stating RC has told them a decision on the 4 Mar sailing will happen in the next few days.  If they choose to sail on the 4th then I would guess that is Quantum back on schedule for Mar/Apr, subject of course to any last minute coronavirus issues.

Any reduction is news flow might be because they're kicking out foreign  journalists who won't cover up the situation:

As soon as the Chinese government allows people to leave their homes the virus is likely to spread quickly.  

This doesn't mean Royal won't resume Quantum cruises from Singapore but I think it would be a mistake.

There are people on the 3/4/20 Roll Call who had booked it b2b with the cancelled 2/24/20 cruise, hoping 3/4 gets cancelled, not flying in from Australia or UK for a 4 day cruise

Follow @jadetravelsworld on Instagram. She is Sports Staff and said they're cruising for 18 nights. I'd MUCH rather have been onboard with her instead of being cancelled!

We're currently on Radiance and Royal cancelled our port stop in Bali for today but because of Australian tax laws we're in the harbor and being cleared to avoid Australian taxes.  We'll head back out in a few hours.

Sorry you missed going ashore in Bali.  Clearing in Indonesia also allows them to sell duty free booze on board! 

Really nice cruise, we did it a few years ago.

This is interesting according to a social media group page a TA in the UK has started giving refunds for these two cruises stating they’ve been cancelled.  However those that call RC direct are being told both cruises are still going.
