It was the first time my sisters and I had ever been on a cruise and we absolutely loved it! All four of us felt it exceeded our expectations and though it was expensive we felt it was worth every penny. Since coming home we cannot stop talking about it. It was a beautiful ship, spotlessly clean and all services from all departments on the ship were excellent. We felt there was something for everyone -from quiet cocktail bars to a lively nightclub.The entertainment was excellent. We dined every morning in the Britannia restaurant for breakfast and evening meal and the service and the food was outstanding.The cabin was again spotlessly clean. There was ample storage space and coat hangers which you do not get in many hotels. Every evening a newsletter was delivered to the cabin with very detailed notes about the port we were docked in and all about the town with a map to guide you. The only criticism we have and it is a minor one is that the pre-voyage literature was very much about selling the trips and not enough about what we were entitled to use and where we could eat on board. We did not realise until the fourth day on board that we could also eat at the Lido restaurant and that it was open all day and for late breakfast.
However, that said we are all planning our next voyage on the Queen Victoria!
Excellent. Clean and service was always excellent.
An excellent port as we docked right on the quayside.
A lovely new port .
We did not dock here but Livorno
We reached the shore by tenders which we enjoyed.
