11 Night Caribbean & Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 18, 2011
Ship: Queen Victoria
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The Queen Victoria has a very nice ambience, to which both passengers and crew contribute. As experienced cruisers we were surprised by the crude method of embarking passangers; disembarkment, however went smoothly.
The first afternoon tea was also disorganized; instead of adding more tables the maitre d. was sending late arrivals to the buffet. From a design viewpoint the ship suffers by comparison with other Fincantieri products. The atrium is a dead loss, too small to be useful and too big to be ignored. Storage in the cabins is poor; this is the first cruise where we have had to store clothing on the floor. The shelves provided are too deep and we discovered items left over by the previous occupant of the cabin. The less said about the shower the better. We would like to contradict other critics who have faulted the Lido buffet - there is no problem with the layout and the selection and quality of the food is excellent.
