High winds delayed the conveyance until Monday and the trip was expected to take 10 hours.  Once the Quantum arrives in the Netherlands, sea trials will begin that will measure the ship’s seaworthiness (speed, safety features, maneuverability etc.).  The cruise ship is scheduled to arrive in Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersery on November 10.  Here are two interesting infographics about the conveyance.
