Very enjoyable cruise, service and food excellent. Very good lecture speakers and evening shows. Best night was the Orchestra band playing Rock n Roll in Golden Lion Pub, with some jamming by Davie Howe.!

Indian Ocean Idyll

May 13th, 2019

This was the first part of a longer cruise that continued to Southampton, and many of the remarks above apply to the whole trip. With luck, I'll be able to review the other segments. I don't know if it was the ship or the air travel, but I came down with a bad cough that took me three weeks to shake. Fortunately, the weather was warm and the seas flat, so I took to sleeping on our balcony. The high humidity helped a lot.

This ship is absolutely wonderful, the decor upon Queen Victoria is classic, she is a classy ship, I love the fact there is lots of wood and felt instantly at home. The ship is neither too big nor too small. The staff get to know you and the service is welcoming and friendly but not stuffy. Our stateroom was attended to twice daily, the food was excellent and I’d say the food in Britannia actually was better than specialty even though as a bit of a foodie we gave the Verandah ago. Entertainment... well it’s world class! The shows, out of this world, it’s the west end and broadway at sea! Then there are comedians one of which we made great friends with (Jon Courtney) just wonderful in a proper theatre where some nights we had our own box at no extra cost. Excursion to Universal studios was also amazing, this was all booked by our agent and went without a hitch. I have been truly spoilt! It will take a lot to beat what was the perfect holiday and I hope our next cruise is on the QV! Thank you so much.

Research for book on Cunard

Mar 8th, 2019

I was revisiting Victoria as she had a recent major makeover which I wanted to see as I was gathering material for my new book High Tea on the Cunard Queens which tells the story of my life spent on every Cunard Queen ever built and the changes seen over the last 55 years. The book will be released by History Press in July 2019

Some positives and negatives with several days of rough seas

Mar 3rd, 2019

We chose this cruise because we liked the places it was going to go, some of us wanted more seatime to take advantage of all the activities offered onboard, we were able to use FF miles for our flights and the timing though not perfect for us was doable. Our concerns were that Cunard might be more formal than we wanted to be on vacation and I have to admit it was. Dressing for dinner and the shows every night required packing a lot of clothes. I'm not sure I would choose Cunard again.

Cunard has gone downhill since our last cruise with them and to be quite honest is poorer than many 3 or 4 star ships that we have been on. The QV is a dark ship inside. So much so that we both felt that we were starting to suffer from the SAD syndrome after a few days on the Atlantic crossing, so we had to make a point of going outside on the sea days, regardless of the fact that the first few were rather cool and windy. The lifts actually reminded us of our visit to the Titanic Experience in Belfast, where you are taken up in a virtual lift with dark wood panelling. Many people commented on the lack of decent amounts of light. The itinerary was OK, but could have been a lot better. Between Southampton and San Francisco, we passed by some ports that we knew were better than the ones we visited!

Great ship. Nothing bad to say about anything. v

Classy liner, nice staff, Cunard as usual. A tradition.

Cunard Queen Victoria is quite the same as Cunard Queen Elizabeth, less Art Deco than QE, the QV is more victorian style, and more classic. The Cruise was excellent, due to the calm sea in January 2019, a very rare situation. I loved the daily program, which offer everyone something, and you are not boring at all. Only about 6 children were aboard, so be advised that for this World Cruise (and I think also for others) you will meet more mature passengers.

Always loved a Cunard Cruise. Cunard has Class and Elegance in a True British Way. Queen Victoria is my favourite ship in the fleet at present. The central Ballroom is fabulous. Top tip, if you don’t dance learn a few basic steps of waltz and quickstep and any other ballroom / latin dance to enjoy the ballroom experience at its best. Cunard ships of course lead by example when it comes to taking Afternoon Tea. Totally fabulous.
