Luxuriate in your own secluded haven of approximately 520-707 square feet, featuring marble bathrooms and whirlpool baths. An expansive private balcony commands impressive sea views, perfect for sipping champagne or curling up with one of the books on offer. Refrigerators are stocked to your preferences; your concierge or butler will gladly attend to your every whim.
Absolute happy with the suite - perfect size and no need for anything bigger. Had a look at the smaller cabins and they felt like a cell. Balcony had sunbeds and a large table so was used more than i expected. Bath and shower was welcome. Only two UK plug sockets was restrictive but we managed. Take US/UK adapters if you require more than two. It would have been nice to have one of the phones by the bed and not on the dressing table but that was me being lazy. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room with a huge double bed, lounge room, 2 writing desk areas, shower and spa bath with separate toilet, walk in robe and plenty of drawer and hanging space.
Large balcony with lots of furniture. In room safe, fridge stocked with our choice of soft drinks and alcohol (included in price) , canopies served each evening in room at five o'clock.
Only criticism would be noise from the lido above on occasions. Next time I'd go down a deck or two to avoid this, but it was only a small inconvenience in an otherwise perfect cabin. Read entire member review >>
We had for our 7 days voyage a Penthouse - Q4 cabin situated on the 7th Deck. The Penthouse Suites feature a king-size bed a living area with sofa writing desk and chair balcony bathroom with bath and shower. Each of the 35 Queens Grill Penthouse Suites comes with a large living area, bedroom with acres of storage space and a veranda. Balconies have one large white table, one square small table, two stools, two loungers and two recliner chairs. The suite includes plush linens, a walk-in closet and a fully stocked bar. Additional amenities include butler and concierge service, fresh fruit and flowers, welcome bottles of champagne and strawberries, complimentary bottle water, complimentary broadsheet newspaper, DVD player priority disembarkation and tender service, access to the Queens Lounge, priority embarkation and luggage delivery, personalized stationery, Terry cloth robes with matching slippers.
Even if we loved the room, for sure the real star of this voyage was our butler Elvie - the personification of the service excellence and attention to detail. She was absolutely fantastic and from the moment when we arrived on board, every detail was taken care of, every need was met, and every desire anticipated with just the right level of sensitive, informed service. Elvie was the prototype of a perfect butler: trusting and trustworthy, friendly but not familiar, reliable, low-key, unobtrusive professional. Thank you very much Elvie.
The choice of daily canapes is up to you; we requested caviar on blinis before dinner and Elvie took care that the blinis change every day so no change to get bored. You can opt at the beginning of the voyage for 2 bottle of premium spirit and again the butler took care to replace the bottle before they finished. Read entire member review >>
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 day; and throughout our cruise our butler was absolutely wonderful (but we knew her from previous voyages). Being midships and Deck 6 the stateroom was in a quiet location, and the close proximity to lifts and stairway was a bonus and there was no noise at all. Read entire member review >>

Good sized balcony with comfy loungers. You can lie in bed and watch the ocean There were 2 TV sets and a DVD player. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom Accommodation -- I travelled with my mom and her service dog. While I love my mom, we do like our space. Also, although our service dog is small, a deck was essential.
Our stateroom was QV4188. The room was one of the larger Queen's Grill "standard" suites (same price as most others), and had over 700 sq ft (including the balcony). (Thanks to Joe at PG Travel who helped arrange this!) It was at the stern of the ship on the 4th deck. As a corner unit, it had an unusually large wrap around balcony. The balcony was also deep. The balcony easily held 2 lounges, 2 tables and 2 chairs -- with lots of room to spare on the other side. Being at the back of the ship, we did get a bit more noise -- perhaps from the stabilizers. Certainly we got some noise from the anchor being lowered and raised. Our neighbor passenger requested to move because of sensitivity to the vibration/humming, but we did not find this to be a problem. I note that we did seem to roll on the waves a bit -- other passengers commented on this too. Not sure if we had rougher seas, or the ship's size contributed a bit. That said, my mom really liked being in this location, she says it was the best spot on the ship, as you could watch the wake, see the rainbows in the rain, and be lulled to sleep by the rocking.
Inside the stateroom, we had a decent sized "living" area for the sofa, desk table and chair. We had 2 twin beds, which was a bit cozy, but for 2 weeks we managed. We each had separate closets and my mom used the separate dressing area/table just outside the bathroom. The bathroom was rather large with 2 sinks, and tub with jets and a separate shower cubicle. The room also had a nice granite counter, small cooler fridge and bar sink. We were very comfortable.
Internet/Television. The internet service was spotty at best. Don't even think about Skype -- the bandwidth is just too small. Honestly, the television availability was terrible -- but you are not on a cruise to watch tv, right? Bring DVDs. (The library is very extensive, too, and has lots of books peruse and DVDs to watch).

6104 and 6106Midships cabins and so avoided the very worst effects of rough weather. Nicely decorated but not spacious. Poor design means a lot of wasted space. Bathrooms good sized but only one basin for penthosue suite. Bed very hard. Balcony good sized. Read entire member review >>
