  3. Queen Victoria
Cruise to Canaries for winter sun, spoilt by below average food. We cruised on Cunard 5 times, two on Queen Elizabeth, One on Queen Mary and Two on Queen Victoria. The last on Queen Victoria and never again. We have cruised many times mostly with Oceania and Regent Seven Seas. Our last two cruises have been with Cunard on Queen Victoria in a Princess grill suite and MSC Bellissima in the Yacht Club. We would like to make comparisons between the two.1 low10 high Suites QV 7.

Never again on Cunard
