  3. Yes I AM excited ! Booked the Inaugural out of PE on Nov. 5, 2020 in traditional double, then making it a B2B for me by staying on solo and moving to a single balcony cabin for the second sailing. Then booked two more for later, one the day after Christmas to include new year's eve, think that one is 9 days, maybe 8, forgot. Hope there will be a topic page as so far not a great deal has been announced other than the features we know are part of the Quantum Ultra class. Many of us in Florida are excited to have at least one quantum based here !
  4. Is it possible that's for the JS on Deck 9 mid ship, J3s. On other Quantum Class ships those have 2 Bathroom in the cabins.
  5. The difference in beam is not as great as this. You are comparing Quantum's waterline beam to Oasis' maximum beam. The figures for comparison are: Waterline beam Oasis: 154 ft Quantum: 136 ft Maximum beam (bridge wings, lifeboats, restaurant humps, no effect on navigation) Oasis: 198 ft Quantum: 162 ft
  6. Anyone know if that's the long term plan? Looks like it's out of Fort Lauderdale until April 2021, which is interesting for Quantum class ship.
  7. They are not 119 sq fr. they are the same size as Anthem, Quantum, Ovation and Spectrum.
  8. I was looking at cabins 11101, 11510, and such from decks 8-11 that are on the corners of the Aft of the Quantum class ships. These are oceanview cabins that appear to have a lot more space than even a regular balcony cabin. What can you tell me about them? Any downside? I heard some of them might have a pole going through the middle of the cabin. Don’t know which ship or deck this applies to. I am planning on booking one of these cabins for 3 people on the Spectrum of the Seas out of Shanghai to Japan.
  9. Welcome all, we finally broke down and booked an inaugural. Luckily it's not far from us, so if things change, no big deal.😉 There may or may not be a TA prior, short sails in Europe, media tours in the states, or changes in general. I'm just excited to sail a Quantum Ultra from Florida 😁🏖️🏝️ Our current itinerary is as follows Ft Lauderdale Nassau 8am - 6pm Coco Cay 7am - 5 pm At Sea Found this at the bottom of my invoice. 🍾 Formal Night: Make it a night out in your best black-tie look – suits and ties, tuxedos, cocktail dresses or evening gowns. • Usually on Day 2
  10. My (our TA) is trying to get us to go.😇 Too pricey and too far to drive. Would like to try a Quantum class ship though I was also looking at the following 5 night, only a few bucks more for an extra night. I know it not the inaugural

  12. Odyssey definitely has some unique features. It's interesting that it's seems there are several more JS on this ship and way less GS compared to other Quantum Class. The other thing I noticed is, were on the other sister ships you had a JS at the start of one of the humps before the Spa JS, on Odyssey that ares is two balcony cabins (e.g. 13630 and 13632). Those cabins cost more because of he balcony size. It will be interning to see what those spaces are on deck 15 and 16 forward.
  13. They might bring Oasis down to Galveston in 2021 or 2022. Remember, Liberty was based in New York until 2015, then went into dry dock and repositioned to Galveston. Would love to see a Quantum class ship year round again in 2021 or 2022.
  14. I priced the 8 night Southern and it was $3300 for a Obstructed View balcony for 2. When Quantum came out, I booked the first 12 night cruise in the same category and it was $300 less. I also could drive to the port. With this cruise I would have to fly. Not worth it IMO.

  17. I agree. If an Oasis class (even a Quantum class) ship homeported in Boston, I'd be cruising 4x per year. Short or long itinerary would depend on the time of year. Oasis class: May - September Quantum class: October - April
  18. My daughter and i are spending five nights in Singapore, Almost booked an add on spur of the moment five day cruise from Singapore on the Quantum but then read the very bad reviews based on its China sailings pretty much saying if you are a Westerner dont do it Is the ship experience going to be the same when its based in Singapore? Will anything be altered before it starts its Singapore season. Complaints were things like Lack of coffee available (i really neeed my coffee) no specialty coffees available All Food only catering for the Asian Market Things that dont normally cost having a cost or only available for suite guests Pushing Shoving Arguing English speaking tours and activities canceled , reviews basically saying ship totally catering to Asian Market only and if you are a Westerner..find a different ship/company. Has me a bit concerned as I am not familiar with that area of the world ..so would leaving from Singapore be the same sort of cruising ?
  19. I am looking at the configuration of cabins on deck 12 of the Quantum of the seas for cabins like 12231, 12631 or even 12681. I can see that they are interior cabins but on the deck plans they look much bigger than the standard cabins. Enlighten me please.
  20. Not clear exactly if there will be a silver/gold lounge area or more of a conventional solarium. Deck 14 appears to be a solarium with a different layout. Bar has moved forward and to starboard, a restaurant, TBD is central but with an elevator. The restaurant has a separate entrance from the forward elevator lobby. The little blue dots are believed to be card access readers so what does that say? Maybe suites only? Deck plans are not official so can't say for sure. That elevator doesn't go down, it goes up to deck 15 where there is a space of some sort, possibly related to the spa. This has the outline of Spectrum but very different layout. No cabins like Spectrum in this area and mention of a spa that isn't there on Spectrum. Card readers still present. Like Spectrum the outdoor jogging track doesn't go as far forward as it does on the previous Quantum class ships. Deck 12 and 13 aft deck plans are unique. Different than the other Quantum class and different from Spectrum. That suggests these are specific deck plans for Odyssey. However they may not be the final plans and they may in places borrow from the sisters.
  21. I really don't care if it's the first sail, I just want to do a Quantum out of FL. I don't even care where it goes
  22. It looks like they haven't finalized suite details yet. One of my issues with quantum class was the lack of star class suites that hold more than 6, and when I just asked them if this ship had any, they just said "stay tuned we'll have more details to come".
  23. The "aft" elevator bank is closer to midship so anything aft incurs a walk that becomes a very long walk the further aft you go. Imagine if Oasis aft elevators were midship, then those aft Oasis cabins would be a hike too. I've stayed in deck 8 boardwalk balcony cabins as far back as you can go but that pales in comparison to the walk aft on Quantum class. There is a small cluster of deck 6 cabins far forward that have clear views straight down to the seas. I ended up in one as a result of a GTY booking and ended up really liking it. Otherwise I typically aim for deck 11 or 12. I like being near the forward elevator lobby for quick access to the stairs to pop up to the pool deck.
  24. We’ve sailed on the Oasis class ships and want to try the Quantum class. The most difficult part for us in trying another class is selecting where the cabins are located. We’re asking for your advice. On the O-class, we like balcony-hump cabins. Are all the Q-hump cabins near the elevators/stairs? Also, Q-diagrams show the ship’s sides as non-linear and the lifeboats protrude. Do all the balconies above the lifeboats have views of their tops? Would cabins towards the aft section have less obstructed view of the lifeboats than those mid-ship? On O-class, our cabins were located on deck 11. We enjoyed the balcony views and there were cabins above and below ours. Would deck 9 or 10 on Q-class be similar? Are cabins on Q’s deck 11 too near the overhang of deck 13 and therefore always shaded?
  25. That is great they are putting a Quantum class ship in Florida! 👍
