I have never booked ANY vacation this far in advance but I wanted to be sure I got a cabin! I was so disappointed that the inaugural cruise was the Bahamas cruise. I can't believe that there are that many people who want to sail to the Bahamas to support all the cruises on different lines out of NYC/NJ! Everyone I know who cruises passes on the Bahamas cruises. I would not be surprised to see Quantum do fewer of them in the future. You know 11/23/14 will sell out! Or I'll try and snipe a cheap cabin just prior!!!
