2 years ago before the pandemic I went on a Dream Cruise, which was pretty awesome. This time it’s my first on the Royal Caribbean (Quantum of the Seas) cruise, which is a Cruise to Nowhere happening in the middle of a pandemic. It was a much needed breather away from Singapore for 4 days 3 nights, and I wished I had booked another night.

Overall, the food and service was really awesome, and the shows were amazing. We didn’t spend a single dime on extras (other than wifi) cos everything that’s included was good enough.

The only thing I hated about the trip was the need to be ‘kiasu’, from trying to check in to the earliest boarding timeslot, to rushing to book the shows and certain activities. We couldn’t do the bumper car activity as it was fully booked the moment we stepped foot into our room.

A few other things to take note:
– No need to book timeslots for dining (as of now)
– You can’t bring your extension cords (they will confiscate it)
– Everything is paid in USD on the ship
– Try try try to get an earlier boarding time. Our was at 4pm and by the time we were through, it was about 5pm.

*Special to ASUS Singapore once again for sponsoring this episode, and sending a beast of a wifi mesh system for my home πŸ™‚

  12. Hi Shawn. Can i check with u are all meals provided?? And is it all buffet style??

  13. Rccl rubbish ship and staff

  14. We enjoyed the same cruise too and was thrilled to meet you on board! But was disappointed to miss the Seaquins & Feathers show as was all booked out when time for us to board around 6pm after the ART test πŸ™
    World Dream cruise has fairer system as it allows pax to book activities and shows up to next day only, i.e. on day 1 can book day 1 & 2. Can book day 3 only from day 2 etc. But RC’s Quantum ship is much more interesting and exciting! On day of disembarking (which was scheduled at 7am), we unknowingly overslept as my iPhone was showing Indonesian time, one hour behind SG time!! Rushed through washing up and leaving our cabin to comply with our scheduled disembarking time, so realize wasn’t necessary to rush as there were still so many paxs still taking their leisurely time to enjoy breakfast before they disembark. Good to know for our next cruise!

  15. Mask outside is ridiculous πŸ™„

  16. Pls take symphony of the seas!

  17. Been once . Preferred overseas liner.

  18. Really like the transition to your outro, very cool. Pity on the restrictions for the mask, I was hoping to tan on deck chairs without it on our upcoming cruise.. oh well!

  19. Hello, for the dream cruise, which room type did you book?

  20. I work in a cruise ship im glad you enjoyed. πŸ˜€

  21. Great video! May I ask what was the drone you used to take some of the shots ?

  22. Hi Shawn. We are booked on the same cruise. Did the covid restrictions on the number of participants affect the activities on the cruise? Hope you can share your observation on the cruise with regards to the covid restriction especially for group larger than 2 people. Thanks.

  23. Main dining room not open for lunch? Oh, yku are missing out so much more!

  24. I worked in quantum ots last year
