We have cruised before on the Queen Mary 2 and it was wonderful. Friends told us the Queen Victoria was better and that is true. There are 2,040 passengers but the ship is so big that you have no feeling of being crowded. The dining experience is superb, both in the main dining room and up in the buffet. Oceania claim they have the best cuisine of any ship at sea but the Queen Victoria is better and it is much cheaper. The entertainment was incredible. A truly magnificent 1,000 seat theatre of red velvet sets. One night, the three brilliant singers had 1,000, 60, 70 and 80 year olds all standing, swaying and clapping in time to the singing. A truly wonderful experience. We sailed from Rome after spending 2 nights in a hotel in Rome. Visited Barcelona, Ajaccio, Monte Carlo, Livorno Italy, back to Civitavechia, Corfu, Kotor in Montenegro, Dubrovnik and then onto Venice for one night stay in a hotel before flying home. We came into both Corfu and Venice at sunrise and I have the most outstanding photographs of sunrises.
Could not fault anything. Bottle of champagne on arrival.
