My husband and I have just had the most wonderful cruise from Sydney to Singapore leaving Sydney 24th February. After a miserable week of wet weather in all ports in Australia, we headed for Manilla. From Manilla to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Bangkok it was beautiful clear sailing. I unfortunately had to use a Walker as I am booked in for a hip replacement in a weeks time and was traveling in a lot of pain. I didn't have to say anything, staff were very observant and were so kind to me, if it wasn't for them my cruise would have been so much harder,even going ashore or having to use a tender was so much easier because of the care given by the crew.
I only had one grouch, the whole system of how the Queen Victoria runs is amazing, it makes you feel like a Queen yourself, the organisation that is done in organising the tours, the paperwork, the news every night from your home Country, just everything is so organised and at your fingertips just when you need it.
The Dining Room experience is truly amazing from those beautiful afternoon teas in the Queen's room to the dining room each evening with everyone elegantly dressed, the service and the food was first class with such interesting menus. Breakfast and Lunch was equally the same.
Struggled with a Walker getting in and out of the cabin but we knew that this may not be easy when we booked as we couldn't expect a disabled room just doing 1/3rd of the world cruise but the walker did fit through the door and if Virgilio (our cabin steward) was in the hallway he would rush up and arrange for the door to stay open until I got through which was so helpful.
6176 is close to lifts and straight down to the dining room for breakfast and dinner.
