Review Summary

Everyone should experience the Queen at least once. The crew really offer outstanding service and being pampered was very appreciated. I've not seen a ship so clean from stem to stern. And the ship has a real promenade deck, allowing you to stroll the deck 360 degrees, with old fashion deck chairs to chill and just relax. We were so busy doing nothing, we didn't know where the week went.

Crowded, but as a Queen Suites guest, they had priority boarding and it was a breeze.

Queens Grille was outstanding. . . from service to food . . . All meals all 7 days.

Onboard Activities

We "lucked" into being on the voyage with Britain's National Symphony Orchestra with conductor Anthony Inglis. What a treat. He was simply amazing. The ability to have that much talent and be so down to earth and well-connected with the audience. He also hosted a ship choir and there were more than 200 that joined. Both performances were outstanding.

Overall entertainment was very good. The planetarium movie was a bit lame, but the experience was nice.
