LIVE from Quantum of the Seas, sailing April 12th!

Recommended Posts

Hello friends! After nearly a year since my last cruise the time is finally here... I'm back to present to you my adventure aboard the stunning and new Quantum of the Seas sailing this Sunday!

 

I am excited once again to provide you all hopefully some great photos and a chance to sail along with many friends and I virtually as we head for a 12 night sailing to the eastern and southern Caribbean! This of course will also include my pre cruise fun leading up to the big day.

 

For those of you not familiar with me my friend and fellow CC member Radio inspired me to do my first ever "live" from the beautiful Oasis of the Seas back in October 2012 and since then I also shared my travels aboard Celebrity Silhouette and twice aboard Allure of the Seas. I hope to improve among each review and this will be no exception. As many of you know I love to take photos and share them with you all here.

 

LIVE reviews do take a lot of time and effort, but I feel the end result is well worth it especially seeing the excitement from my fellow cruisers as I share the journey with them.

 

So kick back and relax and join me for what is sure to be a great cruise aboard Quantum and what will be her second to last sailing from North America! As Radio would say, "thanks for tuning in everyone!" :)

Good afternoon! I am looking forward to your review. My family will be getting on the ship on 4/24!

 

I do have one question, if you wouldn't mind....I am traveling with my 18 month old, as well as my 4 year old, and I was just curious if my 18 month old would be able to use any of the pool facilities. I believe there is a "baby zone" in addition to the H2O zone where children in swim diapers can stay but I'm not sure. If you get a chance and take notice of the policy, I would really appreciate it! Thanks

Oh yes, that's Gibbs. In honor of my friend and fellow live reporter MrFunInTheSun who sadly had to cancel this sailing.

 

Let's see if he can stay out of trouble or like Andy, just seeks it out ;)
