Alot of talk that Quantum will be based out Bayonne. Explorer has been there awhile and it is still a nice ship but Bayonne is due a newer ship.
With Breakaway coming soon in NY it would make sense for Royal to have a new ship in the area also. I have to try Breakaway though at some point the shows and entertainment sounds like it is going to be top notch.
Come on Royal give us Quantum with 9 night cruises to the caribbean. I hate the itinerary that Explorer and NCL ships do out of NJ/NY....Nassau/Orlando. The 9 nighter Explorer does has a nice itinerary.
