Trans Pacific

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: San Francisco
Embarkation at San Francisco was not too well organized. As everyone joining Queen Victoria (over 1000 passengers) seemed to arrive at the same time, the queue started on the pavement well outside the terminal building. after about an hour, we arrived on board just in time to have some lunch.

Our suite was spotless and we were well looked after for the whole cruise by our butler and cabin steward. We did not ask the butler to do very much other than ensuring that our drinks, fruit, crisps, olives etc did not run out!

It would be very hard to find any fault with either the food or service in the Queens Grill - both were excellent and our waiters soon learned our preferences.As has been noted before, you can order just about anything you want provided you give 24 hours notice.

After 5 sea days we reached Maui and the following day was the Big Island (Hawaii). For some reason, we did not call at Honolulu on Oahu - a disappointment to many on board. A few more sea More days took us to Samoa then on to New Zealand with our first stop in Auckland followed the next day by a tender stop in the Bay of Islands - probably our favourite of the whole trip.
We disembarked in Sydney after having spent the previous day there as well. No problems getting off and on our way to the airport.

To sum up, this was our third cruise on Queen Victoria and was very enjoyable - particularly as we like the days at sea. The ship itself is well looked after and all the crew seem to be happy - long may it continue! Less
