    Thank you for a balanced review. I was on the same cruise and, funnily enough, I too didn't see a lot of my steward. Normally they have a profile mornings and evenings, but I hardly saw mine. However, no complaints - he did an excellent job. I didn't spot the Golden Lion afternoon tea, but at 25 pounds it seems excessively expensive. I preferred The Lido and the pots of clotted cream. Free too! I will be trying Victoria next and wonder how it compares.

      Thank you for your comment. I hope you enjoyed the trip, too, and the lovely weather. Victoria is much the same in layout now, after the refit but be aware that the Midships Bar is now "gin & fizz" and the drinks menu in the Chart Room (Carinthia) is quite different. One other minor moan is that on Victoria in the summmer we were able to purchase the coffee card (10 speciality coffees for $40) but on Elizabeth, even though advertised on the daytime drinks menu, this has been discontinued in favour of a tea & coffee drinks package at $8.50 pppd +15% service and MUST be bought for the whole of the voyage; so we ust paid for our occasional coffees as and when. This will likely be rolled out in Victoria, if not already done. I'm sure you will enjoy the ship just as much.
