Queen Victoria Cruise Review by Robert Wastell

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2020
  • Destination: Around the World
  • Cabin Type: Balcony, obstructed view

The service in the Britannia restaurant was as great as always. But the weather across the Atlantic was dreadful. We were late into Bermuda and Port Canaveral. The Churchill cigar lounge was full of cigarette smokers and resembled the Dog and Duck pub rather than an intimate cigar lounge as it is advertised. Day activities were poor and because of the weather the decks were often closed. Entertainment was average in the evening but the ballroom dancing was good as the music has reverted to music you can dance to. Weather forecasts by the Captain every day were very inaccurate. We stayed on in Fort Lauderdale at the Marriott Pompano. We wished we hadn’t bothered as this is a transient hotel that caters for business functions, air crew and people boarding a cruise ie one nighters. Poor choice Cunard. We will never sail the Atlantic again in January with Force 9-10 winds. It was my wife’s 60th birthday and Cunard not organise the correct day for the gifts in the room that I had arranged. The ship also experienced engine trouble, listed at one point and in summary this was our worst Cunard cruise.
