The Med with Cunard

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Southampton
The Queen Victoria is by any standard a deluxe vessel beautifully designed and and perfectly maintained. The master is to be complemented on the way Victoria is run and maintained.Accommodation was without any complaint.

Boarding at Southampton was efficient and speedy. The only negative here was that one had to find one's own state room without crew help, On such a large vessel this proved a little time consuming

The Daily Programme was comprehensive with something for all tastes. Particularly many things were specific for the more mature person as most of the passengers were aged 50+

Food was adequate and in the Britannia Restaurant well presented. It did eventually become rather repetitive from the menu point of view. The buffet section however was often crowded and lacked niceties. Here food was either cold or just warm and the similarity to school dinners comes to mind

Additional items such as wine proved rather expensive and to charge $2.6 (+15%) for More water was inexcusable. This extra gratuity charge in itself made matters worse.

However, on balance, an enjoyable trip worth repeating at a later date. Less
