But Felix..... CHINA????

I never said Americans deserve everything first, although it has been a tradition. But many ships stay in Europe for many seasons (many Celebrity ships did that) and most spend a considerable amount of time there before they come here.

I could see Quantum going to the UK or Barcelona. But China? I just find it hard to believe they are sophisticated enough to pay the new ship premium the line would get here. I don't think the Chinese think that way. I also don't think they cruise for the ship - they cruise for the gambling, included food (which is not anything like what RCL said they had planned for Quantum) and for the fun.

Anyone who thinks the Chinese think like Americans has a big surprise coming. They are far more provincial, anti-social, and not so clean (when I see "no spitting or smoking" signs all over Quantum I will be very disappointed).
