Review for Queen Victoria to Europe - British Isles & Western

We have cruised regularly on Cunard cruises for 15 years. The service provided by the waiters, bar staff and our cabin steward was the usual high standard. The food in the Princess Grill in the evenings was good. However the hot meals in the self service Lido were invariably luke warm/cold. The cost of drinks has risen with a large glass of wine costing on average around 13 US dollars. Our ...

We have been lucky to cruise many times with Cunard (like many of you) and other cruise companies we always chose Cunard for the standards and service, but the last 2 cruises post the Pandemic! have shown that they are making small cut backs, but blaming the pandemic!!!! Staff - Superb as always so attentive which we like, some may say its OTT, but compared to others that what to us makes ...

There were faults with this cruise, but not over the things that are important to me. These are cabin, food, service, a calm and serene atmosphere, an elegant and spacious ship. All these aspects were excellent, especially the quality of service, which was faultless. The passenger/crew ratio of 1.77:1 was good, and there seemed more than enough staff. Yes, the QM2, being an ocean liner does have ...

Are we seeing the end of cruising’s golden age? Months of false starts, cancellations and frankly awful standards of service from certain companies - no names no pack drill - had made me pessimistic but having just returned home from a 14-night cruise to the Mediterranean on board Cunard’s QM2, I’m brimming with confidence. The good times are back! QM2 is an elegant ship - plenty of dark ...

I have just returned from a 14 night cruise around the Mediterranean on Queen Mary 2. Whilst we have travelled many times on Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria this was my first time on QM2. One cannot help but be impressed by the sheer size, spaciousness and quality of the interior of the ship, evoking the grandeur of past ocean-going liners. The Royal Court theatre is quite impressive ...

First cruise post-Covid, how are Cunard doing?

Short factual summary before my opinions: Queen Victoria was in good nick post-refurb with much outside painting going on. Passengers aboard numbered around 1550, and though there were definite problems with staff numbers – those at work were running around like the proverbial – there were no problems at all with staff helpfulness or courtesy. ALL staff at ALL TIMES were masked, passengers not ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

My first ever cruise. Was very much looking forward to the advertised excellent service, fabulous entertainment and delicious food. This ship failed on all points. The service in the majority of the restaurants was very slow, receiving your bottle of wine half way through your main course is not good enough. The entertainment was basic and lasted just 40 minutes per show. The britannia restaurant ...

Cunard Queen Elizabeth starting to become very poor value.

We chose a back to back cruise to celebrate our birthdays. The first 12 nights we were Club Balcony and the second 17 nights on Princess Grills. I will talk about dining later. The Club Balcony we chose was on deck 7 with an extended very large curved balcony, the stateroom is similar to most other balcony cabins but at an increased cost due to the Club Dining. Most Club Balconies offered are ...

Finally, at, I think, our seventh attempt we made it back on to a Cunard ship, and enjoyed ourselves very much. We have cruised with Cunard many times and were pleased to see everything was much as expected, with a few differences because of Covid. By far the worst part was embarkation which took about an hour and three quarters rather than the usual 20 minutes. I’m not sure why this was, ...

Princess Grill versus standard Brittany's balcony

Having spent 2 weeks on QE in November on a cruise to the canaries & maderia in a standard balcony cabin I thought it would be useful to some to compare experiences of a short trip to Amsterdam in princess grill in March. The first obvious difference is space. The princess Grill cabin was approx a third bigger overall, however contains a walk in dressing area with a spacious bathroom with a ...
