Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria is known for her elegance and her graceful splendour. Her unique facilities are amongst the most modern you will find and yet she has a special ambience so evocative of great liners past. With luxurious marbles, woods and rich fabrics she exudes elegance and is adored by her crew and passengers alike.

From fine, formal dining, champagne and cigar bars to casual buffets, shopping arcades and casinos; she offers Cunard’s signature blend of high standards and elegance. Designed for both short and long voyages – transatlantic and transpacific, as well as squeezing through the Panama Canal – she offers comfort, choice and luxury. Ideally suited to passengers looking for a classic, British cruise experience.

From 5 May to 4 June 2017, Queen Victoria entered dry dock for a partial refit at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Sicily. This included an upgraded and increased choice of staterooms, new Britannia Club dining, a broader and more distinct bar offering, a transformed sun deck, and several other new features.

People have asked why Queen Victoria has been refitted when she already meets every expectation; she simply prefers to exceed them.
