Queen Victoria is elegance personified. In typically understated British style, the ship doesn't do glitzy or loud, so ambience overall is modest rather than striking. Do not expect even the slightest hint of ...

Third time on the Queen Victoria and it gets better each time. Food, comfort and service all good. The condition and decoration of all areas was excellent. Reason for only 4 stars is that the music in the theatre is far too loud. I ... Read more

Having been very disappointed with our QM2 cruise 2 years ago our expectations of Cunard were low. We were pleasantly surprised that in virtually all aspects this ship was good and it appeared to us that Cunard had got it's act together. ... Read more

The ships service was the best we have ever experienced in all areas. The meals could have had more choice in both the dinning room & buffet areas. Plenty of seating in the buffet always managed to choose where we wanted to sit also ... Read more

This is our fourth Cunard cruise. We have done three Atlantic crossings and had been on this ship about 18 months ago at the beginning of the World Voyage. We had been keen to try a cruise with the line for a while – our minds were ... Read more

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 initially chose this cruise because it was visiting three ports in the Black Sea, unfortunately due to the issues in the Ukraine this part of the cruise was changed. The replacement ports to be honest were less than adequate and places ... Read more

We chose Cunard because my wife loves the many formal nights, and we both really enjoy ballroom dancing in the Queens room. The service and the professionalism on the Queen Victoria was excellent. I've have never experienced better on ... 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 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

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

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
