This is my fourth world voyage on the Queen Vic. Each time I've noticed a slight lowering of service standards. First, the fresh free daily bottle of water disappeared, then the room service Hors d'oevres, then the after dinner bonbons were downgraded (Jello squares and rice krispy treats! Really!) Then the World Voyage status was re-defined to exclude Ft. Lauderdale-Sydney roundtrips. But the final straw was that the caring, effiicient, effective ship's administration was replaced by a cadre of young, fresh, new (inexperienced) imperious bumpkins who know nothing about how to handle people- much less cater to high-paying passengers on a luxury liner! Carnival Corporation doubletalk has replaced any sincere effort to solve complaints that made Cunard such an easy way to travel. I'm a Diamond level passenger and I won't be back!
