It’s so wonderful to drive down to Southampton, hand over your keys and luggage, and within 20 minutes you’re on your ship and on holiday. We boarded this time though with trepidation. Our only previous experience with Cunard had been a short trip to Hamburg on the Queen Mary, a disastrous trip. The staff must have been tired because they were generally rude and unhelpful. We’d already booked our Queen Victoria trip so we’re somewhat worried. We needn’t have been!

From start to finish it was five star. Every meal was a delight, excellent entertainment and easy transfers on and off the ship. And then there was the chocolate afternoon tea – a fantastic spread with just about every chocolate delight you could imagine. It took place as we were returning to Southampton across the Bay of Biscay. We’d arrived a little late and been seated at the stern, right next to the window. On the dot of 4pm the captain ‘put his foot down’ and that was when the fun really began. We had to stay a few more minutes just to watch as we were raised up and dropped down at least the height of a house. It was like a top class fun fair ride!

Overall I can give nothing but praise for the Queen Victoria, her staff and her facilities.

    I trust the Bay of Biscay was calm for you.

    I'm not too sure about the top class fun fair ride though....
