An very tired ship
"Apparently Cunard were well aware that the ship had a cracked propeller -so our 15 night cruise was changed to include a three day stay in Cadiz - in a dry dock.Cunard are certainly losing the good will of their regular passengers with this tired old ship...."Read More

Cunard enjoys a reputation as a luxury cruise provider and the Queen Victoria (QV) is elegantly furnished throughout. I would accept that constant use is going to have an impact on the fabric of the ship but in general it is well maintained. Dining at the Princess Grill is excellent with very attentive staff, a good menu choice and a relaxing atmosphere. Other areas of the ship also offered ...

Liked the itinerary - which unfortunately was changed - once we had boarded. Apparently Cunard were well aware that the ship had a cracked propeller -so our 15 night cruise was changed to include a three day stay in Cadiz - in a dry dock. As the ship was off next on a lengthy ‘ round the world ‘ trip - why not fit the repair in to that cruise ? We were told by the Captain that it was a rare ...

TERRIBLE

There was so much that went wrong it would take too long to write but in brief, no vaccination checks at departure, ship full of cold/cough/covid with no extra precautions or cleansing/sanitizing, Cunard blatantly lied about dry dock fiasco, propeller was in Cadiz on previous cruise where an attempt to replace was unsuccessful, they knew before we boarded, Lisbon would be cancelled confirmed by ...

Having sailed many times with Cunard we looked forward to the Christmas / New Year cruise. We were supposed to have priority boarding - didn't happen. We had asked to be seated on a table for 8 for the evening meal. Didn't happen - got a table for 4 and maitre d' not interested. No cocktail parties - because of Covid but 1000+ people dined together at each sitting and similar numbers in the ...

WE chose this cruise , as being frequent cruisers on other lines we had heard of Cunard 5 star reputation? It was to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary and a 70th Birthday so very special. We found the ship despite the Christmas decorations tired and cold particularly in the dining and public areas, The food was good, but limited and repetitive in main dining and the buffet ...

Did the Xmas cruise after a break of 3 years due to covid. Glad that all the important features and standards have been maintained. Yes there were changes but were all beyond Cunard control. International legislation regarding the environment and Covid regulations meant that, just like life in the uk, things had to change. Life or cruising will never be the same again. The food,staff ,service and ...

Disappointed

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Cunard really need to get it’s act together, the ship is failing in so many areas. Constantly changing the excursion itinerary, length of stay at ports, even the various destinations of the cruise is both annoying and frustrating. Information provided via the pamphlets left in cabin bare no relationship to the information on their onboard website. Confuse the two at your peril - cancellation ...

Quite possibly our last ever Cunard cruise - The "Fine Line" was anything but.

There were so many problems with this special trip, that its hard to know where to start. Lots of other passengers felt exactly the same way. We have no intention on travelling with Cunard again, unless they do something to make amends. Firstly the big one - being lied to by Cunard, and then this being spun as a "unique opportunity". The ship was faulty, and had been arranged to go into dry ...

Excited about this cruise but felt a bit let down by the end.

** We chose this cruise because we wanted to spend Christmas and New Year on a cruise and we particularly wanted to see the New Year fireworks in Madeira as well as liking the varied itinerary.. ** It was trouble free embarkation - very well organised. ** My partner wanted to be on Cunard as he has always appreciated Cunard's style. There were some very good moments and some that were a bit ...
