Queen Victoria is a very stable and organized ship. Everything from the shore excursions, activities, meals were run so very smoothly. Some of the public areas are very beautifully done, especially the library. The meals were very mediocre. The Lido buffet might as well have been on a Carnival ship with plastic vinyl chairs and cafeteria quality food. The alternative dining didn't really offer any real alternative. It was just a room off the lido buffet room with the same boring plastic tables and chairs. A real high tea cost $26 per person. The activities at sea were very sedate. You had to pay $11 a session for any of the stretch, yoga or pilates classes. All the ones arranged by the spa were just a sales pitch for the products(nothing fun or informative). The lectures and documentaries shown catered to the age group on the ship(generally 75 and above). My least favorite part of the cruise was making painful conversations with the people I was seated with at every dinner. They had difficulty hearing so I either have to speak VERY loud or dine in silence.

Cabin review: Oceanview

I like my location because it's very central for the main lobby, dining, activities, etc. Need new TV. The picture quality was sooooo poor and snowy.
