British elegance and quality: Queen Victoria Cruise Review by christian
Overall Member Rating
British elegance and quality
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The food was unsurprising,not imaginative or original.
We understand they cater to varied tastes.
What we disliked most were the pastries.
Great wine list but rather expensive.
Starting dinner at 8,30 pm followed by a show at 10,30 pm means a very late bed-time.Because of this we missed many shows. We liked the magician and the dancers.
Dressing up each evening is a hassle. Dinner is a fussy affair on this ship.
You have the option of the self service though.
Cabin adequate with comfortable balcony.
Staff most friendly and polite at all times.
One great plus : the LIBRARY ! The weather during most of this cruise was frisky and cloudy. So we spent a lot of time there.
One last BIG complaint. Not for the cruise line. Disembarkation took 4 hours
because of long lines at re-entry U.S. immigration.We lost a full half day of our holiday More because of this disagreeable interminable long wait.
The cruise had a stopover in Ensenada. I would gladly have missed this kitschy,seedy tourist-trap if it had meant a faster disembarkation. Less
