Length and time of the year means little or no chance of children on board. Britannia balcony cabin on deck 5 toward the front was ideal for us and as we did not intend going ashore too often we were well placed for the ships facilities ... Read more

It was on my husband's "bucket list" to cross the sea on a real ocean liner, and this is the only one sailing today. We also love to ballroom dance and were intrigued to try "the largest ballroom at sea". We travelled ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit the Amalfi coast and ports we had not visited before. Though some of the destinations may not have been our first choice the shore excursions were excellent. The food, staff and service were superb in ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with Cunard and 6th on the QE. Occasionally Cunard lets us down where elements of Carnivalisation become all too apparent; sometimes the service lacks the finesse I would expect; occasionally a member of staff ... Read more

First cruise as a honeymoon cruise from New York to Quebec to enjoy the Indian summer. Concisely put: the experience was worth every dollar spent. We had the most attentive and dedicated service from our stewards Krisna and Richard, ... Read more

I booked with Queen Victoria mainly because I liked the itinerary. The Queen Victoria is an amazing boat - spotlessly clean and shiny, elegant and comfortable! It was just beautiful! The staff were very attentive and provided excellent ... Read more

By way of context this holiday was to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday and we chose this particular cruise (V614B for 7 nights in western med) because all the stops would be new to us and because we wanted to try a Cunard. We ... Read more

We were only on it for the last 7 days. Rome, Corsica, Livorno, Monte Carlo, Barcelona. We chose the Queen's Grill, category 6 (I say the worst house in the best neighborhood). Our cabin was at the back of the ship. A place that I love. ... Read more

This was our first cruise and probably our last and never with Cunard again. We chose Cunard on reputation, one that we found is not all it seems. It was a paradox. Both excellent and dreadful. We stayed in a Queens Suite with the ... Read more
