Ship Facts: Queen Victoria Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Victoria Deck Plans
Hot Water Tea!!
Compared with QM2, QV is a smaller but elegant vessel with emphasis on the darker Victorian decor, which is perhaps a shade to dark in places.

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 lovely cruise with glorious weather.

John Haywood,Amesbury.
