Hot Water Tea!!: Queen Victoria Cruise Review by john haywood
Overall Member Rating
Hot Water Tea!!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The Crew and Staff were as wonderful as ever under their new elegant Lady First Master.
Two minor criticisms:
1.The whole day stop at Palermo was a disaster, one traffic jam after another so we saw little of the City,which in itself was not inspiring, I would not visit again. Whereas Valencia was an inspiring and lovely City with just a half day stay! Likewise Gibraltar, which needs much more than a rushed half day.
Now about the Tea- without doubt the worst WARM tea in the Lido restaurant I have ever tasted made with "Warm Water"- surely Cunard know you can only brew tea with boiling water-the coffee was not much better.
One major worry,as always, the exorbitant cost of drinks- how about a 2 gr glass of Cognac at only $120! No wonder very few were ordering wine at meals.
Overall though a More lovely cruise with glorious weather.
