Lovely ship/poor quality food

Queen Victoria Cruise Review by Dottie2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We chose this ship because it was recommended by a friend.

The ship is a good size ship and we expected Cunard to be of a high standard.

Cabin - good size.good size balcony. excellent housekeeping.

Buffet - good selection at breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was hit and miss as to whether the hot food was hot, tepid or cold.

Bread - cheap supermarket bread which I would not consider buying at home.

I had a sandwich one day, the bread was so dry it was like cardboard.

On another occasion the bread was damp and one morning it was frozen in the middle.

Britannia restaurant - veggie - mean portions, tepid food on tepid plates, Poor quality food.

I had to insist on having hot food on hot plates.

The talk of the ship was the noticeable cut backs from last year and the limited choice of food at dinner, the quality of food and the small portions. Pretentious titles of some of the dishes.

The other main topic of conversation was the price of drinks. A pint of beer around 7 dollars. Some cocktails were around 12 dollars with a 15 percent surcharge on top!!
