It was our first cruise ever for me and my grandmother. We carefully searched for a nice cruise and came across a 12 night Athens-Anthens Cruise on board Queen Elizabeth. We booked a Q3 Cabin 6106 which is a Penthouse Suite. Check in started chaotic but around 12:15 we boarded the ship. Our room was simply beautiful. There were two bottles of Champagne waiting and our butler introduced himself. Our room was cleaned twice a day including with Turndown service. We had breakfast in our room each morning as I tend to find breakfast in Queen Grill restaurant not so good. Lunch and Diner were both excellent and during sunny days we could enjoy our meal outside on the restaurants private terrace. Service and menu were outstanding. The Senior Maitre Mr. Beniamino Acer was undoubtedly the best staff member on board. There were some Tender port for which we received a priority card so we did not have to queue, however we skipped one port as it was too risky with high currents. We missed a visit to Olympia. Entertainment was good although the theatre was sometimes completely full.

Cabin Review

Penthouse
Cabin Q3 6106
For this special first occasion, we booked ourselves a Queen Grill Penthouse Suite on Deck 6 ( Q4 Category ). These staterooms have direct access to the specialty restaurant ‘Queen Grill’ and have extra services like priority embarkment, butler service, complimentary minibar and much more. It was certainly worth the little extra over other rooms as the extra space and services were simply magical.

We chose stateroom 6106 which was right in the middle of deck 6. It was an ideal location with large balcony and close by elevators.

Our room consisted of a small entry hall with desk and a small bar area. There were some welcome bottles of Champagne and a complementary mini bar which is replenished daily. Further, a small seating area with sofa and TV. The bedroom had a Twin bed with another TV and desk. There was plenty of storage space in a separate room. The bathroom was divided in two parts. The first part had a large Jacuzzi bathtub and shower. This side was connected to the other part of the bathroom where the sink and toilet were situated.
