  3. Queen Victoria
As a regular (Diamond WC) I noticed again lowered standards. The meals in the Britannia restaurant have again lost quality and taste. Almost every dish was served cold. It was impossible to have a beer or a wine with a lunch neither at the Lido nor in the Restaurant as Sommeliers have been hiding somewhere. Cabin (BB) was OK, but some rattling was permanent when balcony door was opened. Refurbishing the cabin is an issue. Theater entertainment was a bit chaotic due to unforseen circumstances, but the ship and definitely the "Royal Cunard Dancers and Singers" did their best to comply. The Juggler wasn't worth watching, neither were the pianists. The chamber music quartet only performend in A minor, even Mozart - we, the passengers, called them the "Funeral Orchestra". The ports matched our expectations, the weather did not it's best - but no suprise in December. The last two days bore a rather unhappy atmosphere within the restaurant staff. I had the feeling that there was some trouble within the team. Anyway, we had a relaxing time and the seas weren't to rough. Everyone of our table of 8 was nice and we enjoyed the company as wel as our extrovert and entertaining waiter. Next year we'll book Queens Grill and that should balance our needs.

Average cruise, lowered standards
