The Grand Lobby, QUEEN ELIZABETH - Jan 2012

The Grand Lobby aboard QUEEN ELIZABETH spans 3 decks, Deck 1 with the Purser's, Tours and Voyage Sales Offices; The Internet Centre and Connexions 1, Deck 2 surrounded by Café Carinthia, The Library and The Verandah and Deck 3 with the Midships Bar, Card Room and Library upper level [See separate albums for these areas].
The Grand Lobby is dominated by the superb marquetry panel by David Linley depicting the original QUEEN ELIZABETH with a map inset into an art déco pattern. No less than 13 different woods have been used in the design.
Sadly I did not get an opportunity to take close up snaps of the super monochrome murals behind the Tours and Purser's Offices which should be in more accessible places to view without feeling 'embarrassed' at looking! :) [by Arnold Schwartzman, the one behind the Tours Office depicts Southampton's original Ocean Terminal in part http://imprint.printmag.com/daily-heller/her-majestys-new-mural/ ]
