Cunard Line’s Queen Victoria, launched in 2007 as the first Vista Class ship, is a virtual sister to Queen Elizabeth. Expect a stately, grand design with interiors that pay homage to prewar ocean liners via the prolific use of marble, wood, wrought iron, and brass. A 2017 refurbishment expanded the sun deck, redesigned the Grand Suites and Penthouse Suites, added Britannia staterooms and a Britannia Club dining room, created the Chart Room bar, and enhanced the Winter Garden, a Mediterranean-inspired lounge with a glass roof.
Queen Victoria sails a variety of European itineraries from Southampton, England, to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. The ship also offers sailings in South America and embarks on occasional world cruises.
