We have just returned from this cruise and apart from a few minor niggles I cannot recommend this cruise highly enough. I will start with the niggles. Rome airport was horrendous and we did not get our luggage until late evening, even ... Read more

We have recently returned from a cruise on Queen Victoria and have to say our cruise was disappointing. We have been on Cunard cruises before and noticed a big difference in the standards from our previous experiences. It does seem ... Read more

We had not been on Cunard Line before, so were a litle apprehensive. The passenger demographic was not as elderly as we had expected, which was good! Although there weren't too many under 40s, and as it was term time, only about 5 ... Read more

We flew to Venice and spent a couple of days at the Best Western Hotel Bologna in Mestre Venice - an ideal place to stay to explore Venice itself which is only a ten minute train ride from station right across from hotel. The hotel is ... Read more

Review of Cunard Queen Victoria This was our first cruise ever, and for the purposes of the review I suppose it is prudent to note that my partner and I are in our late 30’s - which is quite young for Cunard passengers. SHIP ... Read more

We were a party of three adults who were extremely excited to be sailing on the Cunard Lines, Queen Victoria. We have cruised many times, mainly with Holland America. Because of the higher cost of a Cunard Cruises we expected a higher ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers, mostly Holland America. We booked the Queen Victoria with Cunard because of the excellent itinerary (in this case it included Athens, Santorini, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, for example). We enjoyed the ports and the ... Read more

We boarded at Athens on a incredibly hot day. Embarkation was swift and comfortable even though we were 3 hours early. We had a balcony cabin on deck 4 kept immaculately by our steward. Lunch we tried to take where ever possible in the ... Read more

First, we enjoyed the cruise, as much for its amazing itinerary as anyhting else. The Greek and Turkish ancient (Greek/Roman) history that we learned so much about as kids, came to life. The ship itself is really nice, a good size, ... Read more

I have cruised with lots of cruise lines and wanted to sail with Cunard. As I choose the itinerary before the ship the choice has never included Cunard as it was always so much more expensive. I know some of you may say you get what you ... Read more

I was ambivalent to say the least before embarking on this adventure with my husband and two teenage children, 14 and 17. If it ends up being the only cruise in my lifetime I can tell you it was an emotional, magical experience. The ship ... Read more

We love Cunard and we love the Victoria, so once again we chose her for our summer break. A chartered flight from Heathrow to Rome went well but was a little chaotic on the airport to the ship transfer. On booking we were told we had a top ... Read more

This was one of those deals which includes 2 nights in Rome before embarking, flights and transfers at an attractive price + balcony cabin. I suppose corner cutting is going to happen and in this case it was that the flights involved a ... Read more

This was our second cruise on a Cunard ship. Our previous experience was on the QM2 and our cruise from Rome to Trieste on the Queen Victoria left much to be desired. I am also not used to complaining and this is the first negative ... Read more
