Just returned from a cruise in the Med on Queen Victoria. We expected to be treated to a little bit of class on the Victoria but not the case. The ship is very nice but not up to expectations in a number of areas. What we expect of a cruise is good food,good entertainment and a good ambiance on the ship. Bullet point comments:-
Entertainment 5/10 Poor apart from 1 act. OK if you like dancing but not a lot to choose from
Food 6/10 Had far better food on other cruise lines. Dinning room food sounded great on the menu but taste wise quite bland and small portions and not always warm. Example Turkey main course was sliced cold Turkey placed on top of the warm veg which by the time it came to the table was cold. Buffet food very repetitive and not always hot.
Ship atmosphere 5/10. Due to the poor choice of activities. The average age on the ship did not help. Main attraction of the afternoon was "Afternoon Tea and Sandwiches"
Wine and bar prices 5/10 Most expensive ship we have been on. Single Jack Daniels over $10. Also 15% on everything including surcharges for dinning options. A lot of passengers complained about the prices.
Another item buzzing round the ship (which we know happens)was the prices Cunard had sold the cruise for £725 for inside £799 for balcony late bookings.
For us Cunard is to formal in a lot of areas and needs to chill out a little. Don't think Cunard will be having the pleasure of our company again. Sorry but that is our opinion.
