Booked a last minute cruise on Queen Victoria

Booked a 4 night cruise on the Queen Victoria at the end of the month. On a bit of a whim really. It is our 30th wedding anniversary on embarkation day and we felt we should mark it somehow ! I had been looking at hotels in the Lakes but saw this for £315 each which I thought pretty good in comparison.

Itís just an inside cabin but I might be cheeky and contact Cunard to tell them itís our anniversary and see if it gets me anywhere !

Anyone else on this cruise ?

Iím not sure if it will be a bit too posh for us but the dates fell right.

Thank you. We are not very posh 😂 it will be different ! The dates worked well because of annual leave booked and this cruise fell on our anniversary and it was comparatively good value compared to other options.

Could I ask, on a 4 night cruise will it be one formal night or is it formal night every night ! Husband does have his tuxedo.

We've done the Queen Victoria, beautiful ship. My top tip is having a cocktail in the commodore club and or the gin bar. Regarding dress code you will need to get dressed up every night if you want to use the main restaurant (not the buffet). I would imagine one formal night - long dress for ladies and the rest cocktail. I wore things more than once as we were on for a week. It does look posh but the crew make you feel at ease. Hope that helps, have a lovely time

How lovely! Are you sailing from Southampton? If so I may be on check in

We always suggest you speak to guest services or the purser when you get on board to see if theres any chance of an upgraded stateroom. Sadly we can't sort anything like that out on check in (I wish I had the power!).

Have a wonderful time!

I would guess 1 formal night , we had 5 over 18 nights, the rest of the time is smart, so jacket and tie for men and nice dress for ladies , make sure you go for the afternoon tea at least once, it was very nice .

Thank you. Maybe I will see you at check in then !
On the Princess personaliser it asks if anyone has a celebration on board but I canít see this on My Cunard.

We did a 4 night and had two formal nights(QM2).
The non formal nights were more formal than any other cruise line we've been on. Dressing up is par for the course.

The afternoon tea is fantastic. The cocktails onboard are very refined and great quality.

You will love it Im sure, we found the crew to be top quality and friendly.
