We normally fly out to join a cruise. Our first sailing from Southampton on 31st August 2018 was a great success. The sea was calm all the way to Rome and on to Barcelona. It is our 3rd trip on Victoria and we loved it. Food in Britannia Restaurant was very good and we had exceptional service from Jeffrey and Roberto. We also had an excellent meal at the Verandah. We enjoyed destinations new to us, Cartagena, Valencia and Santa Margarita. One of our best holidays.
