  2. Sorry, but I just noticed that you were talking about 2020. We were cancelled for Quantum, April 4, 2021.
  3. We were on this cruise and here is what we received from our TA. We just booked a Caribbean cruise instead for end of October. Dear Travel Partner, There's really no easy way to say this, but we have to cancel our Quantum of the Seas cruise. We made a change to our itinerary planning, and we've decided to combine a few of Quantum's shorter sailings to create a more immersive experience - including additional ports. As a result, we'll no longer be offering your clients' original itinerary and they'll need to change their ship and sail date. We know this news is disappoi

  5. Probably most importantly as Matt pointed out is that Johnny Rocket's is convenient on the pool deck. On Voyager and Freedom class ships they were not located in the most frequented area. This exposure and accessibility will greatly increase JR sales.
  6. If it is the bridge that goes over the inlet that the tenders use, it could mean that the pier opening is about to happen. We can only hope. We were on the Mariner in January and Captain Toni said that completion was supposed to be in March, but he was not real optimistic.
  7. Cruised on Symphony end of January out of Miami, Terminal A and Luggage Valet was not available.
  8. Highly recommend that you explore the entire ship on your arrival and see how many options are available for you to enjoy. One week is not a lot of time to enjoy all of the ship. The ship is so large you have to spend several hours to check everything out.
  9. You may more disappointed to find out that Sabor's has been replaced with Hooked on the Navigator. However we recently ate at Hooked on the Symphony and it was a great addition to the Specialty Restaurants. The New England Clam Chowder as well as the Halibut was outstanding! Maybe some good news is that they added a El Loco Fresh on the pool deck for some quick Mexican favorites. It was also very good on the Symphony.
  10. At the time we were on the Harmony, October 2016 - it was free. Recent cruises on the Mariner and Symphony, both had an escape room which was $19.99 per person. It was a great experience. Whether or not for $20 would be your decision.
  11. We will be stopping at CocoCay later this week and if we are able to be tendered in we will see where they are on at present time. We have only ever made it in once out of four times due to conditions. Hopefully we will be successful.
  12. We are taking the Radiance this September from Honolulu to Sydney. It is a eighteen night Transpacific and when we dock in Sydney we have reservations to stay at the Rendezvous Hotel in the Rocks area. We have several excursions booked while we are in Sydney including an all day trip (Blue Mountain & Wildlife with Cruise - 10 hours) to the Blue Mountains which is by AAT Kings Day Tours. Other excursions booked are Australian Wildlife 4WD Tour from Sydney by Boutique Tours and a Sunset Dinner Cruise (Captain Cook Cruise). We are then going to Cairns and after several days end up in Melbo

  14. Definitely Brilliance. Love the Radiance class ships. Very nice ship to do the transatlantic.
