The Queen Victoria is the smaller version of Cunard style than the Queen Mary 2. The ship is simpler in design. The public rooms on deck two and three are located on one corridor that runs the length of the ship. Most of these bars and entertainment venues are open to the hall making them less private.
The food was mediocre. The food in Britannia is "dumbed down." The portions are now nouvelle cuisine size. The sauces are less refined and sugar based. There is a vast difference in food from just two years ago.
The Lido restaurant is adequate for main courses but the side dishes were mainly potato based. This is not the place to try to be on a healthy cruise. This is not the place for someone with special food needs.
8023 is across from the hall to the elevator. The light breeze comes into the room from the open door on the floor above. This changes the temperature in the room in the day and necessitates a thermostat adjustment at night. This may be why the room was dusty even though it was well cleaned.
The room size was decent. The bathroom is typically small.
Not the glitzy port of Miami, but close enough.
This is not really a port for senior citizens. It is high crime and high activity. I do not scuba dive or play drinking games.
The port was Huatulco. This is a new town manufactured for cruise ships. It is mainly a beach and shops. The cruise staff liked it as the beach is right in front of the ship.
