Default Queen Victoria Britannia Dining Room

In the Personalise Your Voyage function on the Cunard site, one of the special requests you can make is for upper level dining. I know that the Britannia Dining Room has two levels. Does anyone know if either is more desirable than the other, and if so, why? Our voyage is October 24 to November 5, from Barcelona, cruising the eastern Mediterranian, ending in Rome. Would the time of year make any difference? Thank you for any advice/experience on this subject.

Hi Patricia, we've dined in the evening on both levels & the service was equally as quick & efficient in both.

The upper deck (deck 3) has the promenade wrapped around it, which does mean that if you are at a window table you may have people looking in to see what the food looks like for the later sitting - we now know how the animals in zoo cages feel ;o)

The lower deck (deck 2) features the Captain's Table, below the Atlantic map & rotating globe. Also on the lower deck there was always either a harpist (Chiara Copabianco) or string quartet playing. The music carried to both levels, but not vey far into the dining room.

One plus point for the lower level is that the Chart Room bar is just outside, so if you like a pre-dinner drink you are on the same level.

If you want to see some picture of the restaurant, we've posted some in the Cruisemates photo section or http://cruisemates.com/gallery/view.php?id=4382.

Hope this helps,

have a lovely cruise,

Alan & Katrina
