"We chose Discovery because our first two cruises on board this ship were amazing. The crew are, in my experience, without exception friendly, helpful, cheerful and utterly professional. The ship has a friendly and relaxed ambiance and caters for all needs."

"Queen Victoria’s rich mahogany, polished brass and handsome art deco flourishes to be found at every turn create a stunning environment, but even more memorable is the commitment and hard work of the ship’s company."

"This was our first cruise and most certainly will not be our last. Firstly, I cannot praise the staff enough. The entertainment team were brilliant, the housekeeping team were so helpful. We loved every minute and will be looking at returning next year."

"First time we have ever cruised, and we were not disappointed. The whole experience was fantastic, the food was excellent lots of different choices to choose from, the speciality restaurants were well worth the supplement fee that applied."
