"Probably the most uncomfortable two hours of my life, squeezed into these vehicles like sardines and the two stops were very underwhelming (one was a view of the port which we could have seen from our balcony!AFTERNOON TEA IN THE QUEENS ROOM
This is still being promoted as a luxury experience but I’m afraid it is far from that now...."Read More
1-9 of 9 Cunard Queen Victoria Cruise Reviews for Senior to Norwegian Fjords from Southampton
We chose Cunard because it was named as a Northern Lights Cruise. We wanted to see Norway, Northern Lights and Viking Villages.
The Cunard transfers to get to the ship and back were seamless. Great flights, the shuttle service was on time and accommodating both directions. The ship onboard and offboard process was seamless and easy.
The cabin steward and purser staff were very helpful and ...
We departed Southampton and followed Norwegian Prima out of the port and into the English Channel. This seven night cruise was the third and final part of our "Three Cunard Queens" holiday and took us to the majestic fjords of southern Norway.
This ship is in great shape and the interior is opulent and elegant throughout. We noticed that exterior handrails were very weathered and required ...
Trip 12 days Norway - not fjords as advertised as we skirted the coast.
Pros: First time on Cunard and personally we loved the actual ship and the crew. Our steward was very attentive, nothing was a problem, thank you John. The staff in the dining room and Lido also very attentive and polite. We only took in one show which was very enjoyable. Lovely string trio. Food was in abundance. Only ...
I chose this cruise to use my remaining credit, just a week to the Norwegian Fjords and although I've been before, I hadn't visited Alesund or Haugesund previously. The weather in Bergen was atrocious, pouring with rain and blowing a gale, but after that the weather was very pleasant, with blue sky and warm sun the last 2 days.
Embarkation was very quick, as no testing was required at the port ...
My wife and I were looking forward to this cruise as we had heard how excellent Cunard was and it was a great opportunity to see the Norwegian Fjords. The itinerary was great and the excursion in Olden(Fjords and Glaciers) were excellent. To be fair embarkation and disembarkation were well managed. However,many other things were not.
We had a Britannia class balcony room. The room in the times ...
This was our third cruise with Cunard. In fact it was our Honeymoon as we got engaged on the same ship 5 years ago. We LOVE the ship.
However, even taking account the issues caused by COVID, there are some major areas that Cunard need to address.
These seemed rather limited on this cruise. Cruises are synonymous with offering almost 24 hour dining, however the choices on ...
65th Husband's birthday in May 2019. Sailing time evening.
We arrived 2 pm. Relaxing start to cruise was the Southampton embarkation and disembarkation. Never sailed from Southampton before always fly cruised. Felt the start of cruise as soon as on the ship.Cases were at our cabin before we even arrived at the door.
Was a bit concerned about whether the ship would be too posh for us and too ...
Firstly the good points: Super speedy embarkation , fantastic food on board, two spectacular stops in Flaam & Gerainger. Bergen was Ok but Haugesaund was dreary.
We travelled for the first time with Cunard last Fall to the Canaries and it was wonderful, 10/10. (Queen Elizabeth). This time there didn’t seem to be the same number of staff around. Longer waits to be served with drinks seemed the ...
We booked on-board QM2 on our T/A last year. The QM2 cruise was because is was an experience we wanted to have at least once. This cruise was booked as we wanted to try a smaller Cunard ship and see the fjords.
Our overall impression of Cunard is a rather dark and subdued ship with a quiet atmosphere. This sophisticated atmosphere was pretty good for me but a little too staid for my wife, ...
