This is a Queens Grill suite so you get the Grills experience with it. Nice size room, large balcony. It was the only Queens Grill suite available in the price range I wanted to pay for the cruise. The location was great, we were near the deck 10 launderette and forward elevators. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom with whirlpool tub was nice. Butler and steward were very helpful and they helped Jill decorate the room for my birthday. Photos are included. Read entire member review >>
The room was spectactular. There is all new furniture, carpeting, wallpaper and drapes. Even the balcony has new comfortable reclining chairs and tables. Though we had previously booked in Club Britannia in 2010 and followed the next three voyages in Princess Grille we decided to treat ourselves and go first class in Queens Grille this time. We were very pleased that we made that decision. Our butler, Krishna, and his assistant butler, Richard, made our 7-day voyage superb with their friendly attitude and willingness to accommodate us in every way. Our room was made up by the time we returned from breakfast. Krishna brought us different appitizers at 5pm each night instead of the usual canapés. They ranged from chicken drumsticks to shrimp kebobs to sushi, etc. Read entire member review >>
Lots of space in the Queens Grill suite and we enjoyed every bit of it. Way more space for storage than we needed. Lots of room to lounge around and linger. If I could re-design, I would start over and better utilize the square footage and furniture selection so that a dining table and chairs could be added. Swap out the couch/sofabed for something more comfortable. Service by butler and steward was only average for a cruise ship. Read entire member review >>
Very tastefully furbished, spacious, enough storage for lots of clothes and other stuff.
We especially liked the mattress, neither to soft, not to hard, we slept well without interruptions. It certainly helped that our suite was very quiet , hardly any noises were heard from adjacent cabins, so either the wall insulation was so good or we had such well behaved neighbors.... Bathroom with same high standards, balcony as well with sides protected against wind, so we could enjoy times outside even with the ship going at around 20 knots against the wind.

Big enough but ordinary. Cracked basin, shower over the short bath.
Few TV channels.
Double bed made of two singles pushed together with a crack down the middle.
Our cabin stewards were as good as it gets. Read entire member review >>
Our suite was midship and I can recommend that especially new cruisers should book the midship cabins as this is the most stable place even when the sea is rough. We nevery experienced any stomach problems though one day it was quite windy and the waves broke high. The Queen Suites are very good in size and even on a world cruise with a lot of days would give enough storage room for the clothes you may need. Our Cabin Steward Vishal was outstanding as well as his deputy Chistian. They did everything to us to make us feel like Kind an Queen. We did not use the roomservice for meals. But people we talked to liked it very much. The bathroom has also a very good size with a whirlpool option and is also suitable for shower. Also the bathroom had a lot of closets and space to place your belongings. The TV channels were not that fantastic as we were on the sea in the middle of nowhere on the Atlantic. Phoneconnection via satellite and also internet was available at all times with short interuptions. Read entire member review >>
Layout is spacious. It is similar to the Neptune Suite in the Holland America 'Amsterdam', except that the HAL suite had a sink in the dressing room area. It would also be nice if the bar area in all of the Queen's Grill suites had a sink. Read entire member review >>
Nice sized room and walk in closet. Bed was comfortable. Nice balcony. When refurbed last year, the TV set in the room was downsized - a little small now. Location convenient for Commodore lounge, Churchill Lounge, Library, Gym/Spa but quite a walk to the Queen's grill restaurant. More "bouncy" than cabins toward the rear of the ship where we've been before. Smoother towards the back but you seem to hear the engine noise / vibration more there. Read entire member review >>

Room 9009(Q-6 Suite)Large suite(506 sq.ft.)several doors down from Churchill's lounge/Commodore Club. Stocked bar with free soft drinks & wine. You get choice of free "hard stuff" & liqueur. Large walk in closet(5 by 7ft)Large bathroom with large Jacuzzi tub. Tub is deep, so use caution when stepping in or out.Very large towels. Not really soft, but they dry you really well.Bedding & TV were new. Old CRT TV's being replaced with new flat screen(about time!)Very large veranda.
The room is on the opposite end of ship from Queens Grill restaurant, so expect a fairly long walk. Good for working off calories LOL! Room was spotless from steward & Butler. They really did a good job. Do recommend the "Breakfast in Bed" feature at some point. It's nearly as good as going to the restaurant for breakfast. You can order from the lunch/dinner menu & be served in your suite should you wish. The menu is delivered daily to your suite.Only real difference from a Q-5 is the Q-5' are more centrally located.

the queens grill cabin was spacious, great closet and storage space, good size
bathroom with a Jacuzzi,(the tub could be a problem for older people, as it is a high step to get in and the shower is in the tub. Balcony was good size as well, no problems there Read entire member review >>
Room: We had a Queen's Grill Suite (Q6). Very spacious room, nice sized closet, nice sized bathroom. The balcony was a good size (not as small as we had feared) - you could stretch out on a chaise lounge at a bit of an angle. On arrival, a chilled bottle of champagne with chocolate covered strawberries awaited us. The cabin butler greeted us, showed us the contents of the mini-fridge which included another bottle of complimentary champagne, canned soda and bottled water. She indicated that we were entitled to two bottles of wine and offered us a choice of red, white or both. This was a very pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. The king size bed had no mattress on it. Instead it was a 2" foam pad over the box spring. When you tried to sleep at night, you felt the steel from the box spring in your back and a quite noticeable gap between the two sides of the bed. In
the cabin, we heard a ship structural snapping and cracking noise in one wall. It sounded like the ship was going to come apart. We complained about the bed and the noise. They brought us 2 more duvets to put under the fitted sheet which helped but not enough. They told us the noise was normal and in all the rooms. We later learned that the cabins were constructed in modules with lots of plastic. When the ship twists / bends with the motion of the waves, the plastic in the walls creaks and snaps. The TV in the room was a modern flat panel. They played some great, newer movies around the clock at no charge. Room service was great. The butler and her assistant were friendly and attentive. We forgot to think about what side of the ship we should request a cabin. On these transatlantic voyages, one side of the ship is facing south the whole time. That is the side you want. So, go for port on Westbound and starboard on Eastbound. Read entire member review >>
