Queen Victoria Review
About This Ship
Cabins: Although there are more than two dozen stateroom and suite categories from which to choose, cabins really fall into eight configurations. At the top are the Queens Grill suite categories, which have the most luxurious amenities; next are Princess Grill suites; finally come the standard staterooms (some with a balcony) as well as inside cabins, whose passengers dine in the Britannia Restaurant. The majority of the cabins fall into the standard categories. More than 86% of the staterooms on the ship are outside and 76% have private balconies. All are designed with ample closet and storage space, and even the least expensive outside categories have a small seating area. Private balconies are furnished with a table and chairs and some have loungers.
Amenities: All passengers are greeted upon embarkation with sparkling wine or champagne and will find a refrigerator, safe, hair dryer, fresh fruit basket, bath toiletries, slippers, and a bathrobe for use during the cruise. Butlers are on hand to attend to Queens Grill occupants, whose bars are stocked with spirits, wine, and soft drinks.
Accessibility: Fourteen cabins are wheelchair accessible.
