After we had checked out the cabin it was time to explore the ship which is a bit like a large self-contained floating hotel - we had just about got to grips with where everything was by the time a week was over! To the girls it was an exciting maze of opportunity with decks, swimming pools, shops, restaurants and theatres round every corner.

You can choose to eat in the Lido restaurant if you wish but we went to the Britannia every evening and just ate at the Lido for lunch and most breakfasts.

It certainly was Norway in a nutshell. The girls both loved Queen Victoria and the cruising and Little Miss Star enjoyed Norway but Little Miss Sunshine declared it 'a bit boring' (she's not overly keen on walks and the scenery was a bit lost on her). The highlight for Little Miss Star was Afternoon Tea on the ship. This takes place every afternoon in the spectacular Queens Room and is complete with white gloved waiters, cucumber sandwiches and cakes. She loved this - especially the cakes!
