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. regards peter smith.

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!

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
