A class experience all the way. Cunard provides the excellent British nautical atmosphere a cruise should have. Great service, great food, without the gimmicks.

Fun in the Mediterranean by paweaver99

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Enjoyed the trivia games, bingo and great food. The service was impeccable. The stops were great, but I was disappointed that we didn't land in Madeira due to high waves preventing the tender from landing, but the fireworks were fantastic. Originally, this was supposed to be a docking port, but it changed before the cruise. Really good lecturers on the royal family and Cunard history.

let me start with they told us to meet them in the wrong place ! ports times changed daily! food was not good in most of the places  food was very BLAND they gave you to eat! the duty free and gift shop over charge twice as much if not more.and not a lot of things to choose from. exchange rate was the same for the whole 11 days. tv was a few shows shown over and over everyday. internet was not cheap. ELEVATORS were not marked clear how to get to all DECKS! port times were very short. very limted things to do everday. trip was setup for MUCH OLDER GROUP OF PEOPLE! staff was good. and ship is kept very clean. have to pay for soda and have to wait a long time to get it. and if you don't carry you card with you 24/7 you will not get it or anything else.

Our 1st Cunard Cruise by leighrivers2000

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Traveling in Queen's Grill was the best cruising experience ever, even though we had the lowest category Q6.  From the check-in we simply walked aboard.  The suite was huge and we enjoyed the included bar set-up with wine and a bottle of Bailey's.   When the wine was gone, they brought a new bottle.  The soft drink supply in our room "mini-bar" was re-stocked every morning.  Our butler brought canapés each evening and tea time was perfect.  We only did the tea time once because we ate too much!  The staff aboard was friendly and very professional at every turn.  The only negative was an error on our bill the last evening.

 

We shall return to Cunard in the not-to-distant future.Happy

Queen Victoria by dunnlau

Loved the cruise but could have had better port lectures. Food and crowd control for breakfast could have been improved. Beds were spectacular. Flat screen and bigger tvs would have been better. Food was good but not as much variety as I remember from previous cruises for lunch.

The good:  Beautiful ship, better than the pictures in the Cunard literature.  Great, professional Cunard staff.  Fantastic service almost everywhere.  Britannia Restaurant food very good for mass-produced food, and Verandah Restaurant food better than that.  Really appreciated 2 full days in Venice.

 

 The OK:  Cruise entertainment ranged between great and not.  What was with that Queen cover band?  Awful!  Some of the shore excursions had too much bus time to get to unrewarding destinations.  They should disclose how much time is spent in a coach on each itinerary.  But most excursions great.  

 

The bad:  while the Spa services were good, the relentless up-selling by the staff really took away from the experience, and the treatments were expensive for what you got.  The internet service was terrible, and failed log-outs (not just me) wasted a lot of purchased minutes.  In-room entertainment was bland, and the technology was antiquated.  It should at least have allowed you t plug in your own device.

Port replacement by ElizabethLove

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship was beautiful, crew was helpful, efficient and the service was excellent.  Cunard elected to replace a major port for Ephesus with a very secondary port in Albania.  This was the only thing negative about this wonderful cruise.

Under the circumstances by irissaunders

The excursions that DID go ahead rangers from outstanding to very good

 

Giving me a lower limit to write a review is not very user-friendly. The categories are also too broad... and inaccurate as we did not go near Turkey at all.

Wonderful experience by Cruiser63399538

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The above comment relates to the cruise itself. The service, stateroom, food and entertainment were all first-rate.  To have "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" sung to us on our anniversary in the restaurant was unforgettable! When we reached Rome however, we were lost. The airport was huge and after so much care on the ship we felt a bit "dumped!"  We are both disabled. After walking 1/2 a mile we managed to waylay some transport. It was such a shame after a lovely holiday.

we loved our Cunard cruise.  The ports were beautiful and so easy to get around.  The staff on the ship were amazing.  We loved every minute.  I have food allergies and for the first time could go to a meal without my epie pen.  The staff was so diligent to make sure everything was safe for me

Fantastic Cruise for Fathers 80th Birthday with 12 Family Members by Cruiser41551522

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I booked the Cunard Victoria for my fathers 80th birthday with my mother and a total of 13 family members.

We cruise frequently as a group for any occasion ie my 50th my fathers 75th my brothers 50th etc and have been on many very nice ships before and this time decided to travel on the Victoria and I booked penthouses for everyone so we were all in the Queens Grill.

We had a fantastic time and were looked after incredibly well by all the staff on the ship from embarkation to disembarkation.

The suites were lovely but the Queens Grill Restaurant and Bar Lounge were exceptional and everyone commented on how they felt that nothing was too much trouble.

We will definitely consider Cunard again for our family group holidays

The food was not up to the high quality that Cunard usually provides. The cruise wasn't worth the high fare I paid!

 

I can't think of 150 words to describe the cruise! x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x  x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x xx x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x  x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x  x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x  x x x x x

Dream Vacation by apujals

Awesome!  It was a dream of mine to visit Greece and Istanbul and my dreams came true with Cunard Queen Victoria.  Beautiful ship, attentive and friendly staffs, overall, beautiful experience.  I will only say that I think they should take into consideration, when it comes to entertainment, that there are other nationalities onboard.  Entertainment seemed to have been catered to the older Brittish guests only.

Wonderful Mediterranean Excursion by caryaustx

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Was very impressed with this beautiful ship, it's cleanliness, impeccable service, wonderful entertainment, excellent food and overall ambiance. Easily navigable- being neither too big, nor too small.  Wonderful class of people, mostly in their 60s.  Only a few children/teenagers on board.
