Queen Victoria Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Queen Victoria, which is very similar to her fleetmate Queen Elizabeth, sails primarily in Europe on Easter and Western Mediterranean, Baltic, British Isles, and Norwegian coast itineraries. If you're looking for a class-conscious, traditional cruise, then this may be the ship for you.
Designers drew upon the history of previous Cunard ocean liners to conceive Queen Victoria’s elegant interiors. From the ship’s double- and triple-height spaces—design features of grand liners of the past—to rooms imbued with an elegant yet understated British charm, the overall effect is contemporary and historically classic. The impact of the Grand Lobby’s triple-height ceiling, sweeping staircase, and sculpted balconies is immediate and unmistakable.
Queen Victoria herself might well feel at home on entering the double-height Queens Room, a loggia-style venue designed in the manner of the grand ballrooms found in large English country estates, such as Her Majesty’s own Osborne House. The ballroom has cantilevered balconies overlooking an inlaid-wood dance floor; the staircase is detailed with classically ornate, curved railings.
In addition to the intimate dining spaces and a lounge reserved for occupants of Queens and Princess Grill accommodations, an outdoor terrace is devoted to their exclusive use. All other public rooms are accessible to everyone on board.
