Queen Victoria - will we travel on her again? - You bet!!

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: San Francisco
Our cruise on Queen Victoria was one sector of the ship's 2010 World Cruise, ie San Francisco to Auckland, New Zealand.

We have just booked another cruise (Venice to Fort Lauderdale) for later this year and on looking at the reviews on this forum have been absolutely staggered at the degree of negative responses to Cunard and its ships.

It almost seems that some travellers simply set out to be as negative as possible.

Obviously there are going to be the occasional problems with any airline, hotel or cruise operation .. especially when you are dealing with 2000 passengers and 1000 crew ... but our experience was that when these were brought to the attention of the proper person they were promptly fixed.

We cannot speak highly enough of the officers and crew on QV - and on the ship itself that provided all the service and comfort that was expected.

We look forward to our next Cunard adventure and suggest to some of the critics on this forum More that they should take a deep breath and enjoy themselves. Isn't that what cruising is all about?

Anchor port, facilities adequate. Surprised to find that in the early part of the day many shops were not open, even though a cruise ship was in port (Lahaina)
