Ship Facts: Queen Victoria Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Victoria Deck Plans
12 Night Ancient Treasures
This was the second cruise on the Queen Victoria and my third on Cunard. If you want a subdued experience with a majority of seniors and Brits, this is the cruise for you. No loud music playing throughout the ship as is the case on many others. Very few children or young adults. Ports of call included Alletta, Port Said, Limassol, Rhodes, Kusadaasi and Piraeus. Tours was very well organized and the tour guides were exceptionally well informed and fluent in English. The main dining room, The Britannia, has the usual bill of fare - good food and good service but nothing special. Their specialty restaurant, Todd English ($30.00 per person supplement) is very fine with excellent food and service. The Lido buffet is exceptional - food is very well prepared and nicely presented. Food is available at the Lido for 24 hours with plenty of selections at all times. As is traditional, afternoon tea is served with white glove service in the Queens Room every day at 4 p.m. The Commodore Club on deck 10 was a very pleasant place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.

Evening entertainment consisted of a review show and a male singer, a female singer one performance each. Neither was outstanding but pleasant enough. A comedian appeared one night as well and was very amusing.

For those so inclined, Ballroom dancing was featured in the Queens Room nearly every night with large numbers of participants.

The ship is elegant without being ostentatious - lots of celebrity photos on display depicting the early days of sailing on the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

The cabin was comfortable but lacked adequate draw space.

The staff throughout was pleasant, friendly and accommodating without being overbearing.
