We boarded the Queen Victoria in Melbourne Australia and cruised to the Milford Sound & coast of the south island New Zealand, we thoroughly enjoyed the 7 night cruise we had a oceanview room on deck one, was very nice and also quiet, really liked all the little touches in the room like toiletries all provided and fresh ice always in the ice bucket with a welcome bottle of champagne, very clean ...

The best things: An elegant ship. Attentive service; staff frequently carried the meal trays for my elderly mother in the Lido, excellent room steward - Louie, MDR maître d against expectations managed to change our late dining to early (only booked cruise 2 weeks before departure) - I think he was sympathetic to my mother eating earlier. Entertainment; on our voyage The Fabulous Beatle ...

Problems from the start. Ticketed as new cruisers when in fact it was cruise #3 for us , it took 3 visits to the pursers office (waiting in line) to correct that error. Even then, there was no way to ensure early dinner sitting, a requirement of our booking, yet never advised as a problem until we had been ticketed and fully paid up. Different table at most dinners. Did I say dinner? A sample ...

White glove service, staff who care about your personal preferences, accurate assistance, and a crew who genuinely look out for your comfort and safety to deliver a relaxing and fulfilling journey. Congratulations to Cunard for preserving their traditions and not bending to trendy expectations. Unwinding is not the norm for most cruise experiences yet I managed to read, recollect, reflect and ...

The Cunard Queen Victoria was a pleasant surprise!

As seasonal cruisers, we decided on the Cunard Queen Victoria due to its wonderful itinerary to the French Polynesian Islands plus Australia and New Zealand. We had not visited these ports before. I was a bit leery that the ambience on the ship would be too stuffy and too formal but it was not as formal as I had envisioned. We had a rough beginning since we were due to embark in LA on the ...

Yes, the ship is magnificent. It is a magnificent structure, with a grand and beautiful fitout in the public areas that makes you feel very special. The facilities onboard are generally first class EXCEPT FOR THE INTERNET which had over 300 people screaming with frustration at its inadequacy and dropout rate. Considering that we were supposed to be on a five star ship, the internet could only ...

Not As Good As I Expected

We sailed on a segment of the Queen Victoria's world cruise from Los Angeles to Sydney. In many small ways this was a disappointing experience. For example: This was the only cruise where we were not welcomed on board with a glass of Champaign or given a bag to use for purchases. Although the food was good, it was difficult to find out about alternative items on the menu and ordering them ...

Embarkation at San Francisco was not too well organized. As everyone joining Queen Victoria (over 1000 passengers) seemed to arrive at the same time, the queue started on the pavement well outside the terminal building. after about an hour, we arrived on board just in time to have some lunch. Our suite was spotless and we were well looked after for the whole cruise by our butler and cabin ...

Our cruise on Queen Victoria was one sector of the ship's 2010 World Cruise, ie San Francisco to Auckland, New Zealand. We have just booked another cruise (Venice to Fort Lauderdale) for later this year and on looking at the reviews on this forum have been absolutely staggered at the degree of negative responses to Cunard and its ships. It almost seems that some travellers simply set ...
