Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip: How the Royals' Most Enduring Romance Almost Didn't Happen
Paperback Books Elizabeth George. Booked late deal outside cabin on Queen Elizabeth to Norwegian fjords. Cabin number The cabin is located aft on deck 1 and suffers from continuous vibration problems from the engine room. The vibrations can even be felt when in The vibrations can even be felt when in bed and through the pillow. A more annoying noise comes from a service duct which is located in the wall separating cabins and The duct carries away waste from the Britannia Restaurant kitchen located on the floor above. Both cabins experience a noise like a toilet is being constantly flushed - a very loud suction noise.
The ship is very aware of the problem and in an attempt to pacify the cabin occupants they switch of the system off between Throughout the day it can be flushing at any time for long periods so forget trying to enjoy the cabin for any sort of relaxation during operational hours. We complained and after 3 days were moved to a balcony cabin. Several other passengers along that row of cabins complained about vibration problems and asked to be moved.
One was Narvik which is a small uninspiring town. A quick look around a few local shops was the best on offer.
Hopefully Cunard will find a more exciting port of call on future cruises. Other aspects of the cruise were fine, excellent food and service in Britannia restaurant. Same guest artists seem to circulate around the same few ships so if you sail regulalrly with Cunard or PandO expect the same artists to be on the bill. Guest speakers were acceptable but the topics about WW2 and the BBC were quite dull and only attracted small audiences.
Specialist speakers on photography were more popular.

Overall passenger service was as good as ever, all staff helpful and smiling throughout the cruise. Interesting ports, lovely ship. We chose this cruise because we always enjoy Cunard, and this cruise was going to four maiden ports, both for us and the ship. We got what we expected, and we're not disappointed. We have cruised with Cunard a number of times since We have cruised with Cunard a number of times since , and cannot really see what those who gripe about falling standards are encountering.
Food, cabin and service were all very good. The staff are unceasingly polite and friendly, and keep the ship in excellent condition. Embarkation was efficient, even though busy and we were in our cabin by The cabin, a Q4, was the same as ever, large, and well equipped, with a bath and shower, an extremely comfortable bed, and a lovely large balcony.
There is an excellent array of tea and coffee making equipment which we barely used, as there were so many other opportunities for consuming these, but we did enjoy our complimentary gin and tonics in the evening. Our excellent butler kept us well supplied with both lemon and lime. The cabin is not arranged to make the most of the space: those at the back of the ship, though the same size look much more spacious, but the Q4s are in the centre of the ship and very stable.
In a Force 10 gale, I felt almost no movement. The worse thing about the cabin is that there is no light over the bath, so reading is not easy. The food in the Queens Grills was much as it always is, with excellent service, generous helpings, and delicious dishes. Probably larger helpings of vegetables would be good, but you can always ask for more.
In my experience you can ask for just about anything, and they will try to provide it - if you give them notice. Incidentally, the dinner menu of the day is not the same as in Britannia, though not necessarily more luscious. Then there is the a la carte in addition.
The was a good lecture programme, but the cruise was so port intensive, I attended nothing, preferring to enjoy sea days from my balcony.
Of the ports, we were returning to Oslo, Helsinki, and St. All were enjoyable, but Gdansk outstanding. There were large numbers of Australians , New Zealander's and Americans on this cruise, and their addition made it seem friendlier and happier than a all-UK passenger load somethimes seems.
The best thing of all is how relaxing the ship is. She is calm and spacious, and almost never feels crowded, but, rather, welcoming and peaceful. Disembarkation was extremely smooth and we were off the ship by 8. Oh yes, and we did book another Cunard trip while we were aboard.

We have sailed several times on both the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Victoria. There is very little difference from one to the other and we feel completely at home on each of them. However, if we did not like Cunard's itineraries However, if we did not like Cunard's itineraries we would find another line.https://menciterfi.tk

While we had visited Baltic States before what whet our appetite were stops at three new countries; Riga in Latvia, Klepedia in Lithuania and lastly, Gdynia in Poland. In addition the ship was stopping at a little known Swedish island, Visby. This port was perhaps the highlight of the cruise in that it was such a complete surprise; dating from Medieval times it has a tiny walled village which delighted us Generally the cruise was a pleasure as is every Cunard cruise for us.
There are some little things that we would change if we could but, as always, we booked another cruise while on this one and we will look forward to it. One drawback for us was the shore excursions. My husband has limited mobility and there are not enough tours geared toward easy activity.
I realize that this could be due to the ports that we visited. There were narrow cobblestone streets in most of them. A plus for me on Cunard is that in the past there has always been someone from the crew backing up the tour guide so that if one has any problems one can fall back on that person.
I would have thought that this was especially needed in ports that Cunard had not visited before but, unfortunately, this did not seem to be the case in one of our ports, Gdansk Our tour to Gdansk was a disaster and there was no backup person. We almost got separated from the group. Part of the problem was a very young child who cried continually into the city about an hour so that it was hard to hear the tour guide's instructions for the meet up after doing Gdansk on our own Read Less.
