  3. Queen Victoria
Wanted to travel from London/Southampton to Barcelona and visit Gibraltar and Mallorca. Everything on this cruise was boring and well over priced. Excursions in Gibraltar and Mallorca were a waste of time and money - drove around the 'rock' in Gibraltar on a Sunday (everything was closed) and were dropped for 2 hours in a tourist trap market in Mallorca. Meals in the restaurant were lacking, tasteless and the meat was tough - some inedible. Drinks were easily twice the price they should have been. A drink was charged as the liquor + mixer + service charge (which was described as how the servers were paid). A $5 drink ended up costing around $11+. Photo shop delivered photos on CD that are damaged and Cunard nicely provided the name of the company but said they have nothing to do with it after the ship docks so that is probably wasted money as well. The Bridge instructor (folks learning) was rude and condescending.

Boring and expensive
