Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Oceanview

Booked late deal outside cabin on Queen Elizabeth to Norwegian fjords. Cabin number 1107.

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 bed and through the pillow.

A more annoying noise comes from a service duct which is located in the wall separating cabins 1107 and 1109. 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 11.30pm and 9am. 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.

Cabin Review


Cabin EC

Cabin in good location just along from Reception and on floor below Britannia Restaurant. Cabin good size with double bed and settee. Adequate wardrobe space and shelving.

Tea and coffee making facilities. Shower and toilets in clean condition. Carpet etc in clean condition.

All acceptable except for engine vibration and other noise problems.

Second cabin, a balcony on deck 4 was excellent.
