A once premium experience on the edge of implosion

Review for Queen Victoria to Europe - All

Chose this cruise as a quick getaway with my father. The ship itself is beautiful and a testament to great ship design. It’s not the most modern ship but internally in decent shape, cabins nice and well appointed if not they do lack electrical outlets and other modern touches. As per other reviews, boarding was an odd affair with people held I. The terminal and boarded by seat row. Terminal ...

We have experienced 4 different types of Cruises... a block family booking of a Turkish Gulet (brilliant), a large NCL Ship 5,000 guests (Butlins-on-Sea ...not for us), a Tall Clipper Ship ( 150 guests...brilliant), and now Fred Olsen... 800 guests (600+ staff !) , We sailed to La Coruna, the Canaries and back via Madeira. We decided to ignore the negative reviews (ignore now, as the ship ...

Well this was a New Years cruise that I will never forget and all for the wrong reasons. This cruise was a 60th birthday present brought for me by my wife back in 2021. The start didn't go well with us having to wait to board the ship having to enter all our details again because the computer system had broken. Entrance to the ship is very underwhelming there is no atrium to wow the ...

Went on Arcadia for new year with my wife, this was our fifth time on Arcadia and we basically thought most things had gone downhill, so are listing our thoughts as pros and cons: - Pros: • The Main Dining Room, considering all the negative reviews the food quality was much better than expected • It was good to see that some of the pre-Covid onboard staff have returned to the ...

I have cruised with P&O several times in the past and have always recommended them above the likes of Royal Caribbean because the service has traditionally been so much better. Not this time. It may well have been that particular ship, the Arcadia, but had that of been my first cruise with P&O I would be in no hurry to go back. There was sickness on board (Norovirus) that was very badly ...

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 ...

An very tired ship

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 ...

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 ...

** 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 ...
