Princess Grill cabin, staff and restaurant were excellent, good entertainment, May 28, 2014
Reviewer: Residence

Pros: Food and service were top notch, couldn't fault our experience on board

Cons: Lectures were a bit lightweight

Date of cruise: November 19, 2017

Departure port: Southampton

Region visited: Europe

Cabin category: Jr. Suite

Cabin number: 5099

The Queen Victoria is "dark wood and velvet" in style which provides an ambience of comfort and luxury without being 'fusty,' but has a wide range of "state of the art" facilities including a traditional pub and smart cocktail bars. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Although a large liner with nearly 2,000 passengers, none of the public rooms seemed crowded.

Princess Grill stateroom was spacious, well designed and very comfortable and provided all that we needed including a daily replenished fruit bowl and bottled water. Dining room was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable with varied menus, good wine list and service which was friendly and attentive but not intrusive.

There was also always the option of the very good self-service Lido restaurant for less formal breakfasts and other meals. We found the combination perfect. Princess Grill Lounge/bar was friendly and intimate both for afternoon tea (white gloved friendly service and delicious scones in particular!) and drinks, with good sea views.

Fitness center was well equipped with great sea views over the bow.

Theater was in "West End" style with comfortable seats, some boxes, and good visibility/sound and access.

Public areas kept smart and clean. They were spacious and provided many small areas for a quiet read or chat.

A wide variety of activities catered for all tastes from classical concerts to rock and roll, painting classes to wine tastings.

Plenty of handy loos, smart and clean.

Disembarkation and embarkation at ports was well organized as were the tours.

Purser's office was very efficient and helpful.

Stylish cruising with an Old World Charm, January 27, 2014
Reviewer: orracle

Pros: Spacious cabins and balconies, tea at sea and unrushed dining

Cons: Photographers taking pictures at every turn, sales goods sprawling in the aisles

Date of cruise: February 1, 2010

Departure port: Aruba

Region visited: Panama Canal

Cabin category: Balcony

Good for children: No

Good for teenagers: No

This is the kind of cruise I'm particularly fond of. The activities are organized and well run without being frenetic. Dining is relaxed and enjoyable.

The ship itself is lovely to look at. Passengers are interesting and easy to meet, and staff are helpful. I hate those parades in to dinner, though, where couples have to run the gauntlet of photographers every day.

Cruising to the Panama Canal in style, January 25, 2014
Reviewer: GBarker

Pros: Impeccable service and great food

Cons: Some will find the British traditions too stuffy

Date of cruise: March 1, 2011

Departure port: Fort Lauderdale

Region visited: Panama Canal

Cabin category: Balcony

This was a round trip cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to the Panama Canal, with stops in St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Bonaire. While many find the British traditions somewhat stuffy, we are diehard anglophiles who felt right at home.

While many ships offer afternoon tea and scones, no one can compete with the authentic experience one gets on Cunard, including the harp music playing as white-gloved waiters serve. Seeing the Panama Canal up close and personal is amazing in itself. If you get the chance for yourself, don't miss it.
