We chose this cruise so we could see the Magellan Straits from our balcony (even chose starboard side to make sure of the best view) and the ship sailed through the Straits in the dead of night! That was disappointing, but cruising by the islands and coast of the deep south of Chile, glaciers and all, almost made up for it. Service on board was amazing. Cruise lines -- and not just Cunard -- owe a great deal to their Filipino staff. They are friendly without being over-friendly. They remember your name and your likes and dislikes. Our lovely cabin steward soon realized that we liked to leave the bathroom light on, and left it that way. He learned our hours, so the cabin was always made up when we returned from breakfast. Food in the Britannia was the best of all the three Queens. Not so marvelous in the Lido buffet, but eating in the main restaurant was always a pleasure. The duck liver pate and the roast breast of duck were divine. Again, wonderful service. We never had to choose bread or order dessert and tea, as the waiters knew what we liked from the first day. The lectures and entertainment on the Queen Victoria were not up to the standard of the other Queens. Apart from Mike Gibson's lecture on Eva Peron, which was wonderful, the presentations were awkward. The Royal Court orchestra is wonderful. The dancers and singers did their absolute best, but they were obviously working at it. It made you feel tired, rather than uplifted. The costume designer is amazing, as is the stage management. Changes of costume were very deftly done. The cabin was the same design as on Queen Elizabeth, but much more annoying. On the QE, the full length mirror is on the outside of the wardrobe. On the QV, it is stuck on the inside of the door. Every time you want to check your dress, the door swings back at you. It is very dark by the wardrobes, too. And the wall at the end of the bed has no pictures. It made for a very boring and annoying cabin. But it was kept spick and span Read Less
