Quantum's repositioning itinerary sails the globe

RCCL-QuantumoftheSeas-render410Royal Caribbean International said it will offer a 53-day cruise in 2015 to reposition Quantum of the Seas from New York to China, and that guests can also book five discrete segment cruises along the way.

The 4,100-passenger ship will leave Cape Liberty in Bayonne, N.J., on May 2 for Shanghai. It’s first call will be in the Azores, on an 11-day cruise that includes Cartagena and Palma de Mallorca, Spain, terminating in Barcelona.

That is followed by a 16-day segment that transits the Suez Canal to finish in Dubai. A third segment departs Dubai on May 29 on a 14-day voyage to Penang, Malaysia.

After a three-day short cruise roundtrip from Singapore, the trip concludes with a nine-day exotic Asia itinerary departing June 15 from Singapore to Shanghai.

The cruises go on sale to Crown & Anchor Society members on May 20 and on May 22 to the general public.
