Cunard Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria, also known as QV, joined the Cunard fleet in 2007. A modern monarch, she was named by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall, in the presence of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
Combining the heritage of Cunard with the amenities of a modern passenger ship, Queen Victoria offers a luxurious atmosphere with many of the same traits featured by her sister ship Queen Mary 2.
When you step onboard Queen Victoria, you notice two things: the regal, breathtaking splendour that you would expect on a Cunard ocean liner, combined with an airy, contemporary feel. Queen Victoria truly is a modern ship. And in addition to the marvelous destinations she visits, you can rest assured that you will enjoy your time onboard to the fullest, with a wide variety of activities.
A day in the life on Queen Victoria:
Make a grand entrance on the grand staircase in the elegant three-tiered Grand Lobby. From here, you can access many of the key locations on the ship.
