Just returned from a 10 night Cunard cruise on Queen Victoria, our 1st and last. We booked about 12 months ago and were allocated cabin on deck 8 near a lift which we requested. When we got on board we found that we had been given an ... Read more

This was our first time on any Cunard ship, and it did not disappoint. My review is likely aimed more at those who have never sailed Cunard, for you experienced ones out there probably know everything I am going to write! My husband (65) ... Read more

Although this was our tenth cruise it was our first with Cunard. Our expectations at the outset were high due to Cunard's reputation and for the most part were fully justified. The expectations that were not met were due to a bizarre mix ... Read more

We are fairly new to cruising having used Silversea,Celebrity and now Cunard. We sailed on the QM2 in January this year on the first leg to Capetown of her round the world voyage. I loved the QM2, so didn't expect the Queen Victoria to ... Read more

This cruise was a substitute for the Black Sea and Turkish Splendors which, due to Mr Putin, hardly touched the Black Sea! As we had stops at Warnemunde [Germany] and Kristiansand [Norway] on a previous cruise to St Petersburg the decision ... Read more

We have cruised many times, including several cruises on the QE2, but with a growing family, other expenses and priorities intervened and we have not cruised for some 10 years. Of all the cruise lines we have used, Cunard has always been ... Read more

This cruise represented a few 'firsts' for us ...first time with Cunard, first time on a larger ship and first time 'sail out fly back'. It is very challenging to find a smooth way to travel from Scotland to Southampton to board, so we ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on the QM2 in June of 2014 after a seven week tour of Italy. My husband no longer flies so we decided to use the QM2 as transport back to North America. Unfortunately, that decision was the biggest mistake of our ... Read more

First of all the ship itself is beautiful, the staterooms are well appointed and bathrooms adequate. What let the ship down was the niggardly approach to food, you had to request smoked salmon and when you did, you were served a minuscule ... Read more

We have been with Cunard now on 3 occasions and whilst they are not our most favoured cruise line we chose this cruise because of the destinations which were part of the 2014 World Cruise which for this segment visited Singapore, Kuala ... Read more

I boarded the QE on January 10, 2014 for a West-bound Transatlantic cruise immediately following my East-bound Transatlantic on Queen Mary 2. Both were beautiful experiences, though very different. The QE is much smaller than the Queen ... Read more

I will try and be as constructive as possible. First can I say that we are regular cruisers (20) but have only sailed with cunard twice before. We are loyal Celebrity Cruisers and nothing on this cruise will serve to change that. In all ... Read more

Somewhat disappointed with our cruise on the QM2. We never eat in buffets so were limited for choice for lunch on embarkation day, to their Sir Samuel’s café. Nice coffee ( charged for) very limited snacks. On the matter of ... Read more

Loved the ports of call. Newport mansions wonderful. Boston hop on and off, Bar Harbor the Nation Park, eating in a local restaurant, lobster yummy, St John not really much to see, the high tide waters meeting not awe inspiring. ... Read more

When I booked this voyage, it was a last minute something to do over the summer. It was one of the best ever, and I started sailing in 1949 with the Queen of Bermuda from New York to Hamilton. My husband and I did a lot of cruising and ... Read more

We loved our cruise around the British Isles. It was probably one of our favorite cruises but we had two big complaints. We don't know whether Cunard has gone downhill or whether after sailing on Azamara Journey this spring we have become ... Read more

Our previous two cruises were both with Celebrity so it is in this context that I comment on our QM2 experience. First the good points: Our cabin even though it was a 'port-hole' class on Deck 6 near the bow was excellent and I couldn't ... Read more

The Queen Victoria is the smaller version of Cunard style than the Queen Mary 2. The ship is simpler in design. The public rooms on deck two and three are located on one corridor that runs the length of the ship. Most of these bars and ... Read more

We have a special fondness for the old QE II and so we were a little apprehensive about how we would feel about the Queen Victoria. Whilst the QE II remains our favorite the Queen Victoria runs a respectable second. By todays standards I ... Read more
