Queen Victoria Cruise Review by Marjorie Blake

2 people found this helpful
Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2015
  • Destination: Canary Islands
  • Cabin Type: Princess Suite

This was our first cruise ever and it exceeded our expectations.

From the start Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and catered to our every need. Personnel could not have been friendlier or more courteous and we ended our cruise feeling we were leaving friends.

So many things to do both at sea and on the tour excursions.

All meals were superlative and the "Behind The Scenes" Tour offered an opportunity to really get to know what goes on in the everyday running of the ship - a real insight.

The only quibble was with the White Star Luggage Service where the luggage pick up from home was scheduled for a certain day but DHL did not do the pick up as advised on the document.

Apart from this, we would definitely choose Cunard and, particularly, the Queen Victoria again.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Madeira (Funchal)

"Leisurely Madeira" - Coach trip of about 4 hours round Madeira including hairpin bends. Low activity and incredible views - stunning scenery.

La Palma

"Heart of La Palma" coach trip (4 hours) Hairpin bends, stunning scenery and finished off at an oasis near the old airport where we were given refreshments in a place surrounded by tropical and sub tropical plants e.g. strelitzias, bananas etc. Magical!

Tenerife

Coach tour of Puerto de la Cruz and Orotava Valley. Tenerife is not as unspoilt as La Palma and for this reason I would not wish to revisit it.

Lisbon

City tour by coach. Lisbon looked run down and shabby and on the whole I was disappointed.
