Broken Promises by DaddyDumpling

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

We booked this cruise after much discussion with my travel agent and .with Cunard that we would have a day in Berlin. This was verified by my travel agent. We had made arrangements to have adriver and car pick us up at the pier in Warnemunde and travel to Berlin for a full day of touring.We were to return at 8PM. Unbeknownst to us,ther..ewas a change that did not permit us to do this tour.The ship left at 5PM.You have no idea how disappointed we were without even one word from the Cunard Cruise derector. In addition,the stop in Kristiansund,Norway was pathetic.A small hick town with nothing to see or do. Why not Oslo?

A great cruise! by Cj469557397

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Hawaii

The "Queen Victoria" did not have an "enclosed" swimming pool. In a nutshell, if the weather was inclement -- and there were several rainy days -- you could not use the pool. The Card Room was reserved for Bridge players only in the morning and afternoons. Since the ship did not have facilities for those who may wish to play another card game, we needed to play in the lounges.

Lap of Luxury by Hartman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

This cruise exceeded our expectations. We felt in the Lap of Luxury the entire voyage. The crew is very hard working and made you feel like a valued guest at all times. There was never any "attitude" that you sometimes encounter -- except from some of the other passengers! All in all, the most relaxing vacation.

Great Job under difficult circumstances by JenniferS24

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Transatlantic

Sailed QV Nov, 2011. We were scheduled to depart from Venice, due to very very think fog the ship was relocated to Trieste Italy. We had spend 3 days in Venice and the last day the fog was so thick you couldn't see 5 feet in front of you, the harbor was closed and I think Cunard did the best they could with an awful situation. We received an e-mail the night before alerting us of the change, we checked in at the port of Venice and then took a 2 hour motor coach ride to Trieste, People who were able to make it into Venice had no problem, they were met at the airport/terminal and sent on their way. Because of the fog tons of flights didn't land in Venice, Cunard had to arrange transportation for all of these people to Trieste as well as having ALL the supplies that they would need to start the voyage transported from Venice to be loaded onto the QV. It was difficult and there was chaos, but they did it all with Grace. The first 4 days of the journey we were at the highest threat level for illness, a lot of guests were sick the trip before and some(I heard) had gotten sick on my trip. This meant that you could not touch ANYTHING in the buffet, Only a small portion of the buffet was open, it was so heavily coated with plastic wrap it was difficult to see the items. It was a pain, but Cunard did what was best and safest for their guests. Having to tell someone exactly what you wanted from a salad bar was annoying, but within 4 days it went away, salt/pepper packets were replaced by shakers, Todd English/ and the Pub lunch were available in the Golden Lion. By the end of the week all the annoyances of the beginning of the cruise were forgotten. I don't know how every crew member meets you once and knows you by name when they pass you again, very impressive

wonderful itinerary by BobS14

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

a bit too uppity for us. we would have liked a few dinners of relaxed clothing requirements. We did enjoy dressing up some and loved having a specific table and time and servers.

A first-class cruise by KenM9

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Caribbean

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.

The worst cruise by HarnK

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Queen Victoria cannot compare to Celebrity, Regent Seven Seas or Crystal(the cruise line that I have sailed on. It is unfair to compare to the latter two since they are rated much higher and more expensive, but to compare with Celebrity, I would give a thumb down on this one. The service was not good. I have to call the steward almost every evening for bath gel and lotion which should be replenished automatically. The internet was not working half of the trip and when it does it was very slow and it really rang up my internet bill because I was charged by the time even when it was hung. The food is below standard. The chef could not even give me a good 5-minute boiled egg up till the last day of the trip. Many times I have to ask them to boil again with me clocking them. Some port of call there was no shutter bus and once we had to pay 5 euro to shutter to the city. I have the balcony cabin and the shower is the smallest I have seen. The entertainment is also very limited. In conclusion I would not travel on Queen Victoria again and I would not recommend to anyone.

Do not recommend by MichelleL12

Sail date: /
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

The ship is new and beautiful. It caters of course to the clientele of United England. The afternoon tea and scones were very good. But, the organization and layout of the lido deck and the poor service in the main dining room is one of the worst I have been on. ( Which I have been on all cruise lines) The food and service is exceptional if you have paid the extra money and are staying in a suite- you have a different crew.

Great trip, great itinerary by colleenbraun

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: South America

Loved the cruise and especially the itinerary. We were nervous by the last week and a half though because of the worldwide spread of Coronavirus. Happily, we got home fine.

Short return trip to Hamburg by Sean2Shop

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria

I love the QV and have spent many days on it now. Whilst I know that Cunard is known as a luxury cruise line, it needs to ensure that its high standards and service is consistent across the ship.

Lovely R&R CRUISE JUST AFTER CHRISTMAS! by peter2498

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

We enjoyed this cruise as a restfull time. If i was to be uber critical , i dont think i could do more than a few days with Cunard as it is a little quiet. i usually travel with Princess and there is a little more life to the boat. But for a four day rest and relaxation it did the job!!

What a let down! by Gillieb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

The first port of call in Maderia, my cousin flew back to the UK and left me solo for 9 days. Interestingly, she was not the only one as the Cunard Pursuers informed her that another couple had flown home because the entertainment had been so bad!! I stuck the cruise out as it had been my ‘dream’ to go with Cunard. It’s not put me off cruising, but it won’t be with them.

Iberian Treasures by beauchamp45

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

A lovely autumn cruise with generally good weather, interesting ports and good food. A nice mixed group of fellow passengers who weren’t as old as expected. Highly recommended for culture and food lovers of all ages.

Fabulous Med cruise by Gunnie1958

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Queen Victoria / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

As always on Cunard there is plenty to do day and night, but also places to sit and read in peace and quiet with a nice coffee if you wish. The Winter Gardens have several TVs, so can get very busy with sports being shown (the rugby World Cup on our cruise!). The ports of call were varied and interesting and the sea days are great for relaxing or line dancing! And don’t forget Zumba at 9.15am!
