Thanks for posting all this very helpful information.  Do you know if there is any alternative to the contact tracing bracelet?  I am allergic to the material that most of those bracelets are made of and it looks similar to the wow bands that I definitely react to.  

 

There was another photo shown (somewhere) of a sensor you could wear around your neck. Or maybe it is both? Link: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2762405-royal-restarts-in-singapore-with-cruises-to-nowhere/page/4/

That was a Trace Token and the linked thread also says Tracelet Bracelets will be issued so it doesn't appear that it's an either/or option.

Thanks for the link.  I will just keep an eye out to see what the options are once we have sailings in the US.  I am sure I won't be the only one who can't wear that.  I can put it in my pocket, when I have pockets, but I just don't want to be constantly stopped if I am not wearing it.

Good morning everyone and thanks for all your well-wishes! It’s pretty early (6:30am) and was hoping to get a good sunrise but the weather doesn’t seem great so we’ll see. I’ll take the chance while waiting to try and answer as many of your questions as I can.

Can you just go into the pool when you want, or do you have to reserve a certain time slot?

No time slots needed, can just go in whenever. This is different from World Dream (and on land) so I’m not sure why they didn’t put a system in. Then again it wasn’t crowded yesterday and in fact out of the three pools (indoor outdoor and solarium) the indoor and solarium hardly had any people at all  I guess if there aren’t many crowds there isn’t a huge reason to have reserved slots.

Do they provide WOW bands for sky class? 

 

Can we also trouble you to share with us what is available in the suite lounge (included without a charge) please? 

Haven’t seen any WOW bands so far. Not sure if they’re giving them out at Guest Services but since we all have their Tracelets I guess they might have thought two wristbands was too many. I’ll pop by the suite lounge later today and take a look!

So excited to watch your experience!

 

Am going on quantum in january myself..so excited!!

 

Did they do the refurbish where they added escape room and laser tag as well to quantum?

Sadly no escape room or laser tag that I can see.

Hi, glad to see your cruise going well!

 

May I ask how long did the check-in process take for you today and what was your check-in time? and was there priority boarding for suite class guests?

Check in took maybe 10 to 15 minute tops? Our check in time was 2:30 and they seemed to be enforcing this, because they had a separate queue for the 3pm slot and were holding them till we were done. No priority for suite guests or C&A except for Star suites and Pinnacles sadly, but aside from baggage drop off there were no lines anywhere so it wasn’t even a big deal. To briefly recap the process:

 

1. Baggage drop off (5-10 min queue)

2. Health check (they just check your survey results on the app)

3. Security

4. Check in (if you did online check in they just scan your passport and Setsail pass to check your identity. 
5. Tracelet collection

6. Immigration (I don’t know why since we’re not going anywhere)

7. Boarding

Thanks for the live updates! How has the food been so far, and how busy was the Coastal Kitchen?

Food’s mostly great though Windjammer had a few misses. Coastal Kitchen’s as good as ever, and it wasn’t too busy. I don’t think you’d have problems getting a table without a reservation, even though the signs say reservations are required.

Awesome, thanks for sharing, and enjoying the cruise! 

 

Do they have the typical hotel toiletries ? toothpaste, toothbrush, bath lotion, shampoo.. you know, the little bottles. Apologies for noob question 🙂

Here’s a pic of the little bottles! No toothbrush as far as I can see though

Hope everything is going smoothly you are pretty quiet today and its only a 2 day cruise!

Yep no worries, all is smooth so far! Well the sea is getting rough and there seems to be a storm, but I’m not too worried about that, living in this part of the world. Quantum was built for all weathers after all.

 Yes you’ll need both the bracelet (from Royal) and either the TraceTogether token or the app (Singapore government). I’m not sure if there’s a way to do it without wearing the bracelet but maybe a transparent lanyard would do it? On World Dream the tracing device was a token attached to the key card lanyard.

Yes masks are mandatory except when eating or drinking, or in the pool! Most of the rules are the same as what we have on land, though I’m not sure if the 5 person group size is a requirement here. Will do a walkthrough of the casino and take pics if allowed!

The weather seems to be getting better, and the sun’s coming out.

According to the map we’re sailing quite near where Voyager, Radiance, Spectrum and Solstice are parked, but I’m on the wrong side of the ship and they might be too far anyway. Wonder if Royal can use them as port stops for future cruises?
