With some desperation to get off Red Dot, we finally booked up a Cruise to Nowhere. 4 days later we walked off kicking ourselves that we have not done it before and are now already planning our second cruise. Some advisory for your own Cruise to Nowhere.
When it says 4 days and 3 nights Cruise to Nowhere, it is actually about 2.5 days and 3 nights. The reason for that is that you get on board about 1600 on day one and depart on day four at something like 0700. See what I mean? 2.5 days and 3 nights.
A must is to get the drinks and wifi packages. The meal upgrade is your choice. We did use that and dined at 4 of the upgrade restaurants so I think we got our monies worth. To be very honest, just dining at Wonderland Restaurant was worth it – what a WOW experience that was – see separate blog coming soon.
The other must do, is to get on board sharpish. Do your safety drill. Get to your room. Dump your bags and go sit with a beer and get busy on the App. Book your meals and events ASAP as they get booked out for the duration really quickly. We had to visit guest services to sort out our dining at the premium restaurants as they were all showing as fully booked on the App. Make sure you do this – especially for; premium dining, wakeboard, bumper cars, sky-dive, North Star etc…
Quantum of the Seas Price
One question that comes up time and time again when you tell people about the Quantum of the Seas Cruise to No Where is “What is the Quantum of the Seas Price?”
On initial booking you may think ‘goodness that’s punchy’ but when you calculate back that food is all inclusive (if you don’t upgrade your package) and that is pretty much 24×7 dining in many location aboard, plus inclusion of all soft drinks it all of sudden becomes palatable. You can make your own choice to upgrade to all you can drink alcohol, getting Wifi, upgrading to the premium restaurants etc etc… of course at additional cost but if you binge you will come out happy – and that is exactly what we did!!!
To find out the costs involved you will have to read until the very end (no skipping through now please)!!
The staff/crew are incredible, like truly incredible. Well with about 80% of them being Filipinos what do you expect. It’s silver service all the way. So friendly, so helpful – just the best. #BeProud Royal Caribbean and Quantum of the Seas, you have hired so very well.
This was an amazing Cruise to Nowhere with amazing people looking after us all the way.
A big call-out is the scale of the ship. It is about 1Km round if you jog the top deck. It is also about 16 stories – yes SIXTEEN. It’s like a floating condominium with restaurants, bars, shops, theatres, swimming pools, gyms, and so much more entertainment – as you will see when you watch this series of Vlogs of our trip.
Cruise to Nowhere Day #1 is just about our arrival, boarding, 1st impressions and some high-level views of what’s on offer. Watch on for Day #2 and Day #3 and the special Vlog on its own for Wonderland (that’s gonna be EPIC).
If you have not done your Cruise to Nowhere yet, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do. It is just fabulous. It’s indulgent. It’s fun. It’s so different.
I now need to go to the gym though to lose the 3 or so stones of extra weight I just piled on.
Did you just scroll all the way to hear without reading the blog? Anyway no more delays in the big reveal.
We were a family of 5 for the Cruise to No Where
- 3x alcohol drink package $822 (yeah punchy)
- 2x room Wifi $332, 5x dining upgrade to premium restaurants (and we hit all 4) $650
- 2x Staterooms (nothing special) $1,900
- Grand Total of $3,704 (that’s Singapore Dollars) for 3 nights 4 days (actually 2.5 days 3 nights)

Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas Singapore
Quantum of the Seas® awaits you in Singapore for an unforgettable cruise experience.
It’s a revolutionary ship from bow to stern: Quantum of the Seas® is the first of its kind. Think of jaw-dropping performances that combine cutting-edge technology with elements of art and music. Activities that the entire family can participate in, regardless of the weather. Additionally, every room has a Virtual Balcony so you can watch the world go by from the comfort of your own home. When you board this ship, you’ll be whisked away to the perfect ocean vacation, where every day will be spectacular.
As the remainder of the Asian cruise sector continues to struggle to recover, Singapore is the first port of call that Royal Caribbean International resumed sailing from during the worldwide cruise closure.
Beginning on October 21, 2022, Spectrum of the Seas will be based in Singapore.
For the Asian cruise industry, Spectrum of the Seas was built. However, the ship has not been offered any voyages since early 2020.
Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum of the Seas is touted as the world’s first “smart ship” and includes features like an on-board shopping complex, laser tag, robot bartenders, and a waterpark. The new cruiser aims to offer guests access to all these attractions without having to leave the ship.
Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s newest and biggest cruise ship, Quantum of the Seas, sets sail from its home at the terminal in South Philly. Onboard this 4,180-passenger vessel are a multitude of attractions designed to thrill all different types of travellers. Guests have the opportunity to fly skyward on RipCord by iFly or experience a weightless sensation in the ship’s North Star attraction.
Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas has a new itinerary to Singapore, with a cruise from March 24th to April 1st. This is the newest addition to the ship’s itineraries for 2019. Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas has been on a world tour since it was first launched in 2014, bringing over 3 million passengers to more than 120 ports around the world. Itineraries have included destinations such as Dubai, Shanghai, and Sydney.
Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas will be docking at Singapore for a four-day stay on October 18th. The ship will stopover in Singapore as part of its inaugural Southeast Asia cruise. The announcement of this new itinerary marks the company’s continued commitment to providing voyages for locals and visitors alike, with ports in Shanghai, China and Haiphong, Vietnam also included on the itinerary.
The Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas Singapore is a variation of the ship’s original itinerary from October 2017. Guests who had already booked their trips on the original itinerary were offered a price option to switch to this newer version. The new itinerary includes visits to Port Klang, Penang, Phuket, and Ko Samui in Thailand. This new route is meant to increase the number of travellers to Asian ports.
Singapore is one of the most fascinating cities in Asia. With a tropical climate, it is hot all year round. The city’s cultural scene offers museums, temples, national parks, and extravagant restaurants that are worth exploring for hours on end. However, there are other unique attractions that are perfect for getting away from the noise of the city to enjoy some peace and quiet.
The Quantum of the Seas sailings from Singapore has been extended by Royal Caribbean again, this time until April 7, 2022.
Passengers on Singapore-bound cruises will also be required to be properly vaccinated.
Additionally, the cruise line will require all new reservations made after October 1, 2021, to be completely vaccinated for all customers, as well as to have all staff members properly vaccinated.
What distinguishes The Royal Caribbean Spectrum of the Seas?
