^Not really. We're booked on Quantum and the dining is very different from NCL. There is not one main dining room and a bunch of specialty like NCL had. There are FIVE main dining rooms all free, a ton of other free options, and some specialty. We were also able to make reservations for everything we wanted ahead of time. NCL is still too 'freestyle' for me.

LOL! And NCL just announced this:

Freestyle diners now have the ability to make main dining reservations up to 90 days in advance. Reservation times are available at 5:30, 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30, and can be made for parties up to 12 people.

 

So it sounds like they're actually moving even more towards what RCL is doing!

Some amazing photos as they prepare to move the Costa Concordia tomorrow. There are also some incredible photos from inside the bridge of the Costa Concordia.

It is hard to believe that the ship was there for so long. They were extremely lucky that the potential complications that could have come up along the way did not happen... It'll be especially interesting to see the photos from the scrapping process once it begins.

Quantum of the Seas to leave building dock II

On Saturday, 09. August 2014 the 167.800-gt cruise ship Quantum of the Seas , the third largest cruise ship in the world, will leave MEYER WERFT’s covered building dock II. The float-out of the ship, built for US cruise operator Royal Caribbean International , will commence around 07:30 a.m.

Following the float-out, the Quantum of the Seas will be berthed alongside the yard's pier for one night, before being turned on 10 August for the thruster and stabiliser tests.

With the ship berthed at the yard's pier, the remaining works as well as tests and trials will be carried out on board until the ship’s conveyance down the river Ems to the North Sea, which is scheduled for the middle of September.

The float-out will be broadcast via webcam on http://www.meyerwerft.com

From Royal Caribbean Blog...

 

www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2014/08/08/quantum-of-the-seas-float-out-delayed-few-days

 

Quantum of the Seas float out delayed for a few days.

 

Royal Caribbean's brand new Quantum of the Seas will have to wait a few days more for its float out from its Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.

 

Quantum of the Seas will now be floated out on August 12, 2014 at 4pm local time.

 

It had previously been scheduled to float out on August 9 but a poor weather forecast forced Meyer Werft to delay.

 

If all goes well, she will begin her thruster and stabilizer tests following the float out.
