Elegance at sea: Queen Victoria Cruise Review by ColinHanna
Overall Member Rating
Elegance at sea
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The ship was 100% sold out for our cruise of the Adriatic and Greek Islands, yet it never felt crowded. The shore excursions (and embarkation and disembarkation) were executed flawlessly without waiting and without making you feel like cattle on a drive.
The dress code is a plus as far as I'm concerned. Two black tie nights out of seven is just right, and jackets without tie the others is dressy enough to be special without being burdensome.
Most of the entertainment -- pianist, humorist, etc. -- was very good. Only the resident company of More dancers and singers was disappointing.
All in all, if you're looking for top-shelf service, food, ambiance, accommodations and general elegance, you'll love Queen Victoria. If your idea of a cruise is to stay in cutoffs and flip flops 24/7, then this ship is not for you. Less
Cabin review: BF8026 Balcony
The cabin was more spacious than I expected. There's a small sofa and desk in addition to a king-sized bed. The closets were excellent -- three of them, plus ample under-bed storage for suitcases. Only the shower was a bit small, but perfectly adequate. The balcony is well-positioned and has plenty of room for two chairs and a nice little bistro table.Read All Balcony (BF) Reviews >>
