Such a beautiful ship - true Cunarder

Sail Date: April 2013
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Southampton

My friend (1st time cruiser)and I have just returned from a short cruise to Hamburg and Le Havre on Queen Victoria. Embarkation at Southampton was completed in minutes by helpful and friendly staff..a great start to a lovely holiday. What a lovely ship, very traditional with all the usual Cunard service. The Grand Lobby entrance is beautiful and sets the tone for the rest of the ship.

The food in the main restaurant and alternative dining venues was first class as was the service. Easy to find your way around not like the bigger ships. All ships personnel were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. We particularly enjoyed drinks in The Commodore Club and coffees in Cafe Corinthia. Afternoon tea in the Queens Room is an experience not to be missed. Both being football fans we were amazed to find that we did not miss any Premiership games which were showed in The Golden Lion pub or Lido and attracted a fair amount of fellow football supporters ..all good fun! We met some lovely More people everyone was friendly.

It was nice to always find a quiet space to sit and read a book or have quiet drink. All in all a very enjoyable & relaxing cruise. I would recommend Queen Victoria to anyone looking for an elegant, relaxing cruise. Less

Cabin review: Queen Victoria Oceanview Deck 1 1083

Our cabin 1083 was midships on Deck 1, quite close to stairs/lifts so enabled us to get around the ship very easily. Cabin was good size with more than adequate drawers/wardrobes...plenty of hangers. Good aize fridge. Liked the robes/slippes saved on packing. Usual size shower room but toiletries and towels were excellent quality and replenished regularly (twice a day). Excellent service from cabin steward who was quietly efficient and helpful. Good size window. Excellent mattresses, pillows and loved the bolster cushion for reading in bed... now have to source one for home!
