Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
We have just had the most wonderful cruise to Norway and the North Cape on the Queen Elizabeth.Originating from Southampton,I had always wanted to start a cruise from here,it did not disappoint.We chose the cheaper option of having an obstructed view,this was not as bad as I thought,we could see a small amount above the lifeboat and the stateroom was a good size with a sofa and a kingsize bed.

We dined in the Britannia restaurant,where there were no disappointments,the food was 5 star,nothing was too much trouble,service was impeccable.It was great to be able to have a drink of coffee,or any other hot or cold drink 24 hours a day included.You could order breakfast in your cabin for no extra charge.

Entertainment on board is great and varied.The shows were of West End quality,and often it was difficult to choose where to be so as not to miss anything.

We called at mainly normal Norwegian ports,but went to Spitzbergen,where the research stations are in the Arctic circle,although it was not on the itinerary,we went further north to Magdalena Fjord to see a glacier.It was all amazing,being on such a large ship in such narrow spaces in the fjords.The weather was very kind to us,so that was a bonus,but you would hardly know you were on a moving ship.

Tromso is not on the list of ports and is worth a mention.It also has old wooden buildings.It has a Polaria Centre which has an aquarium and a seal pool,and information about the Arctic and is worth a visit.

The views in the fjords from the ship were breathtaking.
