Up to now, we've always done the QM2. With that ship doing less trips to the Caribbean, we decided to try the Queen Victoria. This ship has a more luxurious feel(at least on the surface)It unfortunatly is NOT an ocean liner, so even minor seas really upsets it's balance. That all being said it was a more laid back feel than QM2. Food was very good. We recommend paying the $10 fee to dine in the Lido at night. Bamboo/Coriandor/Prime were better & less hurried than the Britannia dining room. Entertainment is not as good as QM2..the budgets seem lower & it shows. Theater is a nice place, either way.

Genrally very good. We did the " Grills" the last 2 trips & it really IS much better than the main dining room. I recommend paying the $10 to dine in the Lido at night,as you get a more relaxed & unhurried feel.

We had a wheelchair room. If you like a stateroom that's 75% larger for the same price..well that's the way to go. Do remember that if they need that room for an actual wheelchair pax, you may get "bumped" with no upgrade.

Pretty good. The theater is nice, but the shows don't have the budget of the QM2... Smaller showband, not as polished performances. Not too bad, mind you. Good lecturers with varied topic matter. Great library, better than the one on QM2.

Excursions are pretty much the same for all Cunard ships. Most are pretty good. Always a good idea to read reviews.

Overall a very nice trip. My partner got quite ill. Not from pax, but from an earlier bug that he had trouble getting over.We still recommend doing the Grills if you can. The extra service & attention to detail are definatly worth it.
