Donna, I bet RCI has done its homework in the asin market. I also think they may be getting some incentive from the board of tourism or something like it. They have been a hit with their class of ships and don't think they would send brand new ship somewhere if they haven't done their background on the Asian area.

I am sure that Asian people will love a new Royal ship. There are always Asians sailing on the Oasis and Allure and you see that they are having a good time.

Just off Indy and the Asians that were onboard were a ton of fun. So glad to have met them and spend time with them. They participated in mostly everything...karaoke, line dancing, game shows, flow rider, dancing, etc. etc.
They were not the sit back and watch the fun go by......They made the fun.

Also sailed with Asians on Oasis and they too were so much fun.

Some people may think Asians cruise to gamble and maybe some do but whenever I cruise with Asians they seem to be having a great time and enjoying all the ship has to offer.

The Asians cruising on Quantum will love her! I have a feeling Quantum will do well there.

Yes we are talking about Asians from Asia. I am a people person and I talk to everyone young or old male or female. I have met people from China, India, Japan, Vietnam , South Korea, Singapore, East Timor and The Philippines on my Royal cruises. These people had flown long distances to fly on the those great Royal ships. They were well educated and appeared to be well off. They spoke English very fluently.
On my last cruise I made friends with two couples from East Timor. I don't know if spoke English because the addressed me in Portuguese ( because of the shirt that I was wearing ).

Since that was their primary language and the first language that I learned, that's what we used.


Royal Caribbean International does a great job in advertising in Asia and Europe as well as South America.


I better not get started on those places and the people I have met from there.

So lets but this subject to bed.

Quantum of the Seas was advertised as being a USA based ship and still is but only for 4 months before being sent to China.
Anthem of the Seas is UK based for the Summer months then being sent to the USA to fill in the gap left by Quantum. So for the winter months (October to April) the USA get Anthem in 2015-2016. Then by April 2016 the Third Quantum Class ship will be here and she will probably be USA based (taking the slack from a missing Quantum of the Seas.)
So the moaning USA people missing their ship will be without a Quantum Class ship for 6 months (April 2015 - October 2015).

Can you not survive that time?
We in the UK won't have a Quantum Class ship for 6 months EVERY year and we aren't moaning about it. You only have ONE year without and it's like the end of the world. It's only six months, a hockey season, six months!!! and there are other ships.

I think all the moaning and groaning is because from the beginning, Quantum was going to cruise the USA, and all of a sudden a abrupt turnaround. There was an initial hype about this new class ship, so I can understand the disappointment in the change, which is basically all it is....I think it took a lot of us by surprise is all.

I agree with you 100%.


People who have the time and the money have plenty of ships to choose from.
