We chose Victoria again as it was going to Rio de Janeiro including a long trip along the Amazon. We started from Southampton and flew back from Rio. The ship carried on finally returning to Southampton. On board all food in the Britannia, Lido and Verandah restaurants was excellent. Staff service in all areas was also excellent. The ship's condition was very good overall and for those yet to travel on Victoria, the theatre is very good, the Commodore lounge is very comfortable, the Queens room is adequate for dancing and serves traditional tea in the afternoon. We've also cruised on Elizabeth which is virtually identical. Our criticisms are few and technical. Air-con around the ship needs some maintenance and better management. It varies as you move around the ship with some areas always being too cold (wasting energy?). The air-con in our cabin was not set correctly centrally and couldn't be adjusted enough with the cabin Stat. When we complained it was fixed within 2 hours with much higher air-flow and the centre zone setting was set correctly. Why was it set incorrectly when we started the journey? Someone is not doing their job? The theatre now has additional expensive show light fittings to the point of absurdity. This was over-used during most shows together with too much 'theatrical haze' to make the light beams 'show'. This excess detracted from some of the shows themselves. A higher level of lamp replacement is needed in areas with low lighting such as the Commodore lounge. Trying to read the drinks menu when several of the lamps overhead have failed is not easy! Despite these small issues the ship is superb and I don't agree with the last review about the Atlantic crossing. In Jan it was a bit rough but not as bad as in Elizabeth 2 years ago. Also the engine problem near Bermuda was short-lived. We will happily travel on Victoria or Elizabeth again and in the same middle area cabin. Read Less

The service in the Britannia restaurant was as great as always. But the weather across the Atlantic was dreadful. We were late into Bermuda and Port Canaveral. The Churchill cigar lounge was full of cigarette smokers and resembled the Dog and Duck pub rather than an intimate cigar lounge as it is advertised. Day activities were poor and because of the weather the decks were often closed. Entertainment was average in the evening but the ballroom dancing was good as the music has reverted to music you can dance to. Weather forecasts by the Captain every day were very inaccurate. We stayed on in Fort Lauderdale at the Marriott Pompano. We wished we hadn’t bothered as this is a transient hotel that caters for business functions, air crew and people boarding a cruise ie one nighters. Poor choice Cunard. We will never sail the Atlantic again in January with Force 9-10 winds. It was my wife’s 60th birthday and Cunard not organise the correct day for the gifts in the room that I had arranged. The ship also experienced engine trouble, listed at one point and in summary this was our worst Cunard cruise. Read Less

A mini cruise to celebrate my wifes 65th Birthday on her favourite ship. CPS were as usual first class,luggage and car whisked away in an instant. Booking in and embarkation was faultless,10 minutes from entering booking hall to being on the ship. Suite 7030 was really nice,the only disappointment was that due to our late booking Guarantee Suites only were available and we were allocated a disabled suite,now, had we been disabled I would have been more than happy but being able bodied the lack of a Jacuzzi bath,my wife particularly loves that perk and a separate changing area was disappointing and on a long cruise there could be an issue with a lack of storage space, a ramp was fitted to the balcony but if you didn't open the door fully then a part of the ramp does not drop flush,it stands up and is a really dangerous trip hazard,as we both found out! I do admit to feeling that having booked a QG suite we were not getting 100% of the luxury we have enjoyed in the past. Our Butler,Alex recognised us straight away as we have met him on previous cruises and his memory of our likes was amazing,nothing is too much trouble for him or Richie the Under Butler. Quality of the afternoon Canapes has improved vastly since our last QG experience. We were very happy with our table in the QG restaurant,a nice table for two by the window,the service was as usual impeccable though there has been a noticeable lowering of standards,the Caviar starter is now a joke compared to a few years ago, and having to order certain items at lunch time for dinner and those items mostly being for two,which means if your partner does not like Chateaubriand,Lobster etc,then you have to hope it pops up on the menu as ordering off menu now seems to be frowned upon,QG is still very good,but not what it was!! Entertainment was great,the main productions were excellent,the Jazz Band in the Golden Lion amazing,the Harpist a joy and the Queens Room Dance Band truly first class. We attended the lecture by Mary the Cunard Hostess on the old Queens which was very good and being an aviation enthusiast the talk by David the Lightning pilot was very interesting. Noticeable was the number of people ignoring dress codes but the vast majority dressed up and the two formal nights felt like the old Cunard. Hamburg was very nice to stroll around,not too cold and good to stretch our legs. Disembarkation was fast,smooth and painless. All in all a very nice mini cruise which we really enjoyed, penny pinching is now noticeable across most cruise lines unfortunately now affecting Cunard and before I forget the age old lament on Cunard,extortionate drinks prices, but Cunard still remains our favourite as long as the penny pinching does not go too far!!
