Book early to grab a Quantum berth

Thumbnail image for ext_left_facing 640.jpgWe’ve seen the never-before innovations to come on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas; now we know where the ship will be sailing when it starts earning its keep, in autumn 2014.
The 4,180-passenger vessel will be based at Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey – which Royal likes to remind us is part of New York Harbour. For Brits flying to join a cruise, it’s an easy 20-minute transfer from Newark airport.
Quantum’s itineraries will include seven and eight-night sailings to the Bahamas, eight and 11-night cruises to the eastern Caribbean, and a 12-night route to the southern Caribbean.
The Bahamas cruises will call at Port Canaveral, Florida, Nassau, and Royal’s private island resort of Coco Cay. The eastern Caribbean routes feature San Juan, Puerto Rico; Samana, in the Dominican Republic; and Royal’s private resort of Labadee, Haiti. The 11-night cruises also call at St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, St Maarten, and St Kitts. The southern Caribbean route drops St Thomas and adds Martinique and Bridgetown, Barbados.
Bookings open to members of Royal Caribbean’s Crown & Anchor Society loyalty programme on May 27 and will go on general sale from on June 4. But agents such as cruise1st.co.uk will take pre-bookings or add your name to the waiting list if you want to be first in the queue.
