Very enjoyable time.
We booked this in the first quarter of 2023 when it was cold, wet and dismal. We knew it would be similar in November and found a good priced 12 nights with Cunard, on the Queen Victoria, going to the Canaries. When we boarded in Southampton, all the Christmas decorations were up and the ship looked wonderful.. We were allocated a Deluxe Inside cabin which was huge, on Deck 1 and so calm and quiet. We never use our cabin throughout the day, preferring to take advantage of the activities, table tennis especially, or talks from interesting speakers. We knew all the ports we went to and having been on many excursions in those ports in the past, there was plenty to see within walking distance of the Cruise Terminals. The whole cruise was so relaxing and achieved exactly what we wanted at this time of year.
Cunard have maintained their standards and the whole cruise was excellent. Nice cabin, good food, excellent service, relevant speakers and mostly good evening news entertainment. Basic wifi was very good and one allowed us to switch between four devices. Drinks as ever too expensive!
We had a wonderful time on Cunard Queen Victoria, beautiful ship, and all staff very polite. Excellent meals and nice having room service 24hr and all in with the holiday cost. Will definitely cruise with Cunard again.
