Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
Norwegian fiords and north cape

Just returned from a lovely holiday on the Queen Elizabeth cruising the fiords and north cape, really felt I had seen something of Norway by the time we returned, not something that can be said for all cruises.

Travelled with Cunard on the Queen Victoria two years ago to the Baltic, a superb holiday no doubt enhanced by the fact that we were able to travel in the Grill on that occasion, nevertheless went with an open mind and found the Britannia Restaurant had other benefits, not least that it was more condusive to meeting other travellers, especially as we had opted to join a very sociable table of eight (most tables in the Grills are tables of two and it takes longer to get to know people) We had a midship balcony cabin, same high standard as the Princess Grill and the beds are unbelievably comfortable, entertainment varied but possibly that is a matter of individual taste. Food was excellent but was very disappointed in the freshness of all bread, which is baked on ship so something must be going wrong somewhere, and everyone agreed that the coffee served in the Lido was like dishwater and not much better in the restaurants. Of course there are speciality coffee bars but I wouldn't use these on principle as I do feel that such a basic commodity should be readily available.

All in all, a very good cruise experience although would prefer Cunard to bring back the formal/semi formal/smart casual format, with just two criteria of formal or informal, most women ended up in LBDs every night!!!
