I have recently returned from my first ever Cunard cruise onboard the Queen Victoria. I’m usually more of a freestyle diner so the smaller fancy portions took me somewhat by surprise. The food was generally really good although I did miss what I would call ‘normal’ food. (Maybe I am just to used to eating in Wetherspoons!) By the end of the cruise I was really craving a burger.. however, there are burgers on Cunard if you know where to look for them.
The Britannia restaurant was where I had the majority of my meals, I did also have food from the pub and buffet. The pub food wasn’t what I would call traditional pub grub.. and I was generally unimpressed. However, the buffet was of a high standard, always clean and full of food. It was considerably smaller than what you’d find on larger ships but was also a lot quieter. I only had trouble getting a table once (and that was on disembarkation morning which is to be expected).
The starters in the Britannia restaurant were a mouthful or two, normally pretty yummy but tiny. Below is a photo of the fanciest egg on toast in the entire world! I’m not sure if Cunard would like me calling it an egg on toast.. but it was an egg and it was on some toasted bread so I think that qualifies.
Have you cruised with Cunard? Did you like the food? Let me know in the comments.
