We chose this cruise so we could see the Magellan Straits from our balcony (even chose starboard side to make sure of the best view) and the ship sailed through the Straits in the dead of night! That was disappointing, but cruising by ... Read more

What a difference a year makes. Early 2016, Queen Victoria, Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco via the Panama Canal, great cruise, great service, could not wait to book a cruise on this vessel for 2017. Early 2017 Rio to Valparaiso. ... Read more

This cruise (our first with Cunard) was sold to us as a luxury cruise. I think there is a difference between luxury and tradition and I don't mean traditional in the sense of cruising in it's 'glory days' but traditional as in, how the ... Read more

...the level of entertainment in the theatre. Not a major issue but annoying to be offered third class acrobats, jugglers and so-called comedians. Cunard should try to understand that a Butlin's type inter-active panto style offering is ... Read more

As a regular (Diamond WC) I noticed again lowered standards. The meals in the Britannia restaurant have again lost quality and taste. Almost every dish was served cold. It was impossible to have a beer or a wine with a lunch neither at the ... Read more

This was for us a "taster" cruise to see if we liked the whole concept of a cruise break/holiday - having become disillusioned with airports and the delays and waiting times. The experience could not have been smoother and more ... Read more

My friend and I booked this cruise as she wanted to go the Christmas market in Bruges, Cunards dates Friday to Monday worked best for us and I live in Dorset so Southampton is an ideal port for me and a free day at sea to make use of the ... Read more

Very poor food and menu. Better in Britannia class! Head Waiter and Maitre "D" completely uninterested in passengers. This was evident throughout most of the ship although one or two staff were excellent. Suite had ... Read more

This was the longest cruise we had ever done and I wasn't sure we would find enough to do during all the sea days. I certainly needn't have worried, the days just flew by, if it wasn't our best cruise it came pretty darn close. Check ... Read more

This was our fifth cruise on Queen Victoria but the first in the Grills for several years. Queens Grill was an affordable price on this trip and it was part of a birthday treat. We flew from Heathrow Airport on a British Airways ... Read more

We were delayed going out to Barcelona with Titan Airways. When we eventually went through the gate there were buses to get us out to the plane. It was awful for the elderly - we were like sardines and had to wait over an hour on the ... 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

And a very good experience too! Did not know what to expect but enjoyed this cruise very much. Although it is quite different from American cruise lines, we (my sister and I) found Queen Victoria restrained but very easy to ... 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
