Queen Victoria is the smallest of the three Queens in the Cunard fleet. She is the same size and design as Queen Elizabeth and slightly smaller than Queen Mary 2. At 90,000 tonnes she is still a magnificent and sizeable vessel and she can comfortably accommodate over 2000 guests and 900 crew. With seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a glamorous ball room and a fabulous theatre she is well equipped to fulfil the wishes of all who sail with her.
With her classic black hull, gleaming white upper decks and proud red funnel Queen Victoria is instantly recognisable as one of Cunard’s banner carriers. Classically elegant and refined, Queen Victoria has been sailing since 2007 when she set sail from her maiden port of Southampton. She sails all over the world, including short taster cruises in Europe, and much further afield to the furthest reaches of the globe.
Queen Victoria underwent a £34 million refit in May 2017 which included an expansion to the aft lido sun deck to replicate a design much like a luxury resort roof terrace. Guests can enjoy al fresco dining options, more generous seating, improved deck furniture and extended shaded areas as well as evening entertainment. Other new entertainment areas include the debut of The Yacht Club, where you can enjoy social activities day or night and come 3pm, the area transitions into a pre and post dinner entertainment venue with DJ's and live bands. Other improvements include updates to The Winter Garden and other bars and lounges. Plus, a stateroom upgrade for every guest, with new soft furnishings, carpets and HD televisions as well as completely redesigned suites.
Cunard’s Queen Victoria is a magnificent ship, fusing modern technology and equipment with the traditional style and glamour of Cunard. Celebrating 175 years of history is a testament to the success story of Cunard Line.
Dining on board Queen Victoria encompasses all the variety of a modern cruise liner yet with the traditional touches that Cunard is so well loved for.
Take afternoon tea in the ballroom, served in style with the famous and unmistakeable White Gloved Service. Or dine in the handsome Britannia restaurant, with three course gourmet standard cuisine as standard.
Grills customers have exclusive access to Princess and Queen’s Grills restaurants as well as private Grills terraces and lounges.
Entertainment is lavish and has all the pomp and ceremony that you could wish to experience when sailing with Cunard.
Formal nights are a highlight, with black tie as the dress code and when the Queen’s ballroom comes to life with a live band, couples waltzing and champagne flowing.
The Royal Court Theatre rivals the best West End theatres of London, with live spectacular shows. The red velvet curtains sweep across the stage and the private boxes are perfect for a special occasion.
If you prefer a quiet moment then you can bury your nose in one of the thousands of books in the impressive two-storey library or visit the fascinating Cunardia museum with a great collection of memorabilia and artifacts celebrating Cunard’s rich history.
The Royal Spa offers blissful massages and revitalising treatments or sink into the thermal suite in the Royal Bath House for a detox and de-stress treatment that will rid you of any traces of the real world.
The gym is state of the art or you can partake in bowls or tennis out in the sunshine up on deck.
