Queen Victoria has 32 different cabin grades, ranging from inside twin rooms of some 152 square ft. to two Grand Suites of some 2,000 square ft., including balcony. A standard outside cabin of C3 grade comes with two cupboards with hanging space and a third one with shelves and a safe. A desk has two drawers and the two night tables have a shelf each. There is a comfy two-seater sofa with cushions and a small table. The carpet is of good quality, and you feel like you're sinking when you walk barefooted.

The bathroom is on the compact side, yet the shower curtain is thick and helps to keep water away from where it does not belong. A set of Gilchrist & Soames products awaits you in the bathroom -- the body lotion bottle has a mouth big enough to get little doses out of it rather than the whole contents at one go, which is a nice little detail. The bed is wide and comfortable and has three pillows for each person.

So far so good, but then come the hiccups. Firstly, the TV is too far to one side, making it difficult to comfortably watch it from the bed. The high-backed chair by the desk requires both hands to move. Well, you can watch the TV from the sofa and use both hands to move the chair, but there's nothing you can do about the third problem.

Many cabins have just two drawers. While the cupboard space is adequate for cruises of maybe up to 14 nights, for longer cruises, the shortage of drawer space is a major flaw.

Cabin grades C4 and C5 have views obstructed by lifeboats, while the A6 grade accommodations on Deck 5 have views partially obstructed by the life saving equipment. If you are looking at this range of accommodation, the C3 grade on Deck 1, although lower in the ship, may be an attractive option as the views are not blocked from here. The ship seems to cope with rough seas with less slamming than some others, which is good news when considering sleep at night.

All cabins have flat-screen televisions with some 41 channels, including nine focusing on music. Movies in French, German and Spanish each have their own channel, while the rest of the diverse output -- action, comedy and classic movies as well as news -- are in English. Some onboard events, notably enrichment lectures, are filmed and rebroadcast on in-cabin systems.

   Cabin 6117

Perfect siting midway between two stairways; very quiet at night. Adequate balcony. Tiny but effective shower.


   Category Q3
July 2013

The stateroom was a Penthouse suite, midships. Easy to find, ample storage room, good bathroom, good balcony. Two televisions and dvd-player as per normal, and of course a well-stocked bar.

The luggage was delivered extremely quickly (best yet) on embarkation...continue
