Hi! I've not been on the Q Vic but every ship I have been on has lifts to all levels of the dining rooms. If you look at the deck plans for the Q Vic you will see there are 4 lifts go to both floors of the Britannia Rest. Can't help with your choice of levels though........Regards Wilba.
There are lifts so don't worry you would needed to have made this option when you booked the cruise otherswise you will be advised when you arrive of your table reservation. Did you specify 1st or 2nd sittings which are usually an option. When you do arrive you can go and meet with the retuarant manager ask the front desk if no details in your cabin where he will be and sort out a table with him if the one they have allocated you is not really suitable, you might be able to alter 1st/2nd sitting but sometimes more difficultt but explain your wife has a disability and they will normally do their uptmost to help and enjoy your cruise.
Is it only the stairs that is a problem, or has your wife a mobility problem IE how far can she walk if you tell me i can give you the information that you require.
Walking is no problem as long as she takes it steady. It is the stairs she finds difficult to manage thank you.
The Britannia is on 2 levels I recommend the lower level starboard side or overlooking the stern. Do not have a port side table this is where the entrance /exit from the kitchens are. Dinning there is like having a meal in the middle of a motorway? Dozens of waiters whizzing in and out all the time. There are very few 2 seater tables and the ones that are there are in bad locations, even less 4 seater tables. There is a great deal of 6/8 seater tables. I suggest the 1st sitting for dinner as it takes about 2 hours to have dinner. The ship is really beautiful on the inside, I am sure you will like her. My wife is also not to steady on her feet as she used to be and finds it finds it hard to walk more than a 100yrds at a time. I contacted Cunard’s customer servicers and they arranged to take her onboard by wheelchair this saved us having to wait and walk onboard we where onboard within 10 minutes of arriving at the dock, It is quite a way uphill to walk for a person that is unsteady on there feet. The pursers office onboard has a small stock of wheelchairs onboard for passengers use a for a $1000 refundable deposit I found this to be a great help in getting my wife around the ship.
Thank you so much for the in depth information, it's just what I needed. Knowing these important pointers before boarding can help one to plan accordingly. I would have hated having my meal in the middle of a "Motorway"!
Thank you again.

Yes, don't worry! You can get the lift to either floor. It is a short walk then to the dining room.
Enjoy your cruise - we did!
