A Ship Schedule site has listed that Quantum of the Seas will make a transatlantic crossing on the 2nd November 2014, before arriving at her home port of Bayonne.
The site listing, spotted by Stacey Katz better known as CruiseDivaNJ on social media and forums, shows Quantum of the Seas as cruising from Southampton.
The transatlantic will consist of 8-nights arriving in Bayonne on 10th November. However, her first cruise from Bayonne is scheduled for 18th November, a 3-night cruise listed as sailing to the Bahamas. However, the Bahamas is not accessible from Port Liberty in 3 days. Perhaps it is a cruise to nowhere?
The 8 days between the next sailing raises many questions. These dates are likely to change, or is Royal Caribbean planning something special for these 8 days?
