Lifts on Queen Victoria

Post by emjay45 » 14 Aug 2019, 23:24

We've booked a Q2 on the Queen Victoria. I thought it would be more convenient for my son if we were midships. Looking at the deck plans, It's a similar ship to the QE. The only concern I have is the proximity of the lifts. I'm a very light sleeper and I wondered if I'll be disturbed with noise from the lifts. Has anyone been as close to lifts as these cabins seem to be.

Wow - lucky you Emjay the Q2's on QV are beautiful suites, not that I've been in one other than as an invited guest !! in reply to your query though we have been right next door and there is no noise at all from the lifts, they are further back from the lifts than they appear on the deck plans.

Thanks Jo I thought you'd probably know. So you've been almost in that position. I didn't think about it when I booked and I've always avoided cabins near lifts in the past thinking about not only the noise of the lifts but also people coming in and out of them late at night. I'm looking forward to being midships as it was quite a trek to the back of the ship on the QE and there were always trolleys or other hazards my son had to avoid.

My information wasn't quite correct for some reason I thought there were Q2's on both deck 7 and deck 8 and having been in 8089 and 8091 a couple of times knowing they were midships I assumed they were next door - there are no Q2's on deck 8 but 8089/8091 are in the same position as the Q2 on deck 7 so the same principle applies there is no noise and of course you have the added advantage that the bedroom doesn't border any outside walls which makes it even less likely you would hear any late night revellers, I'm sure you will be delighted with your choice :clap:

We have been in that vicinity, and like Jo, had no issue with noise. I’m sure you’ll love the Q2 - and QV.

Thanks Jo and Gill
I'm sure I'll be fine. I'm afraid it doesn't take much to wake me at night especially on a ship. Looking at the deck plans the QV is so similar to the QE that I think my son will familiarise himself with the ship in no time. What a pity the QE seems to be spending so much time in Australia. I wonder what the new ship will be like. :think:

I'm sure you will enjoy QV just as much as you enjoyed QE there is little to choose between them.

I haven't read much about the new ship but rumour has it it will be based in Oz which will suit me if we get the beautiful QE back where it belongs not to mention more choice of itineraries which haven't been very inspiring this year ( for me ) and that doesn't look to change until at least 2022, we are very restricted where we can travel to now so I would welcome more Med/Adriatic cruises which are areas I never tire of.
