A travel blog entry by traveleasy

We were allowed into most of the rooms on the ship. Was amazed to see in the Queen's bedroom that she used a very tiny single bed - as did Prince Philip. The commentary said that there was a very strict hierarchy on board the ship - The Royals and/or their guests, the officers and then everyone else. We were surprised that ...
