Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: August 11, 2013


If you liked a little of everything when it comes to Royal Caribbean news then this was the week for you.  

Over the course of the week we learned more about Quantum of the Seas and what we can expect from it.  It's clear that people are excited to know everything they can about this ship and we started out with a list of everything we know about the virtual balcony.  

This was followed up by an interesting list of frequently asked questions about Quantum of the Seas that gave us a few more details about venues, dining, entertainment and more.
