AFT LIDO SUN DECK: This stunning lounge space has been extended to provide guests with additional deck space from sunrise to sunset. Windbreakers and additional sun loungers and luxury cabanas have also been introduced to accommodate sunseekers on board, while the shaded area has been extended for those looking to dine al fresco. Full beverage service is also available throughout the day and into the evening to enjoy alongside live entertainment.

  

WINTER GARDEN: A beautiful room for relaxation located in the heart of deck 9. Guests can sip their favorite libation on the elegant lounge furniture while looking out through the floor to ceiling windows at the stunning view. In addition, the comfort and décor has been further refined, with a statement floor and glass canopy.

 

BRITANNIA CLUB STATEROOMS: In a prime mid-ship location on decks 7 and 8, all staterooms have been upgraded and refreshed with newly-designed carpets featuring a contemporary geometric design as well as the addition of new soft furnishings. New flat screen TVs and, by popular request, tea and coffee making facilities, have also been added to upgrade the stateroom experience even further. The additional 43 balcony staterooms will be further enhanced with premium balconies and a nine-pillow concierge menu to ensure maximum comfort for guests on board.

  

BRITTANIA CLUB DINING: The new Britannia Club restaurant will offer guests the flexibility to dine whenever they choose. Located in the space of the former ChartRoom, the new restaurant will be built alongside the main Britannia restaurant on Deck 2.

 

 PENTHOUSE SUITES: Five of Queen Victoria’s elegant Penthouse Suites have been completely redesigned to maximise space and luxury and raise the quality of guests’ experience even further. The new suites feature floor to ceiling windows and doors, private balcony with stunning sea views, additional storage space and beautiful bathrooms with luxurious whirlpool baths. With butlers and concierge also on hand to take care of every need, the luxurious suites are among the finest accommodation at sea.

 

VALENCIA, Calif., April 25, 2017 -- Following the recent Cunard announcement revealing Queen Victoria’s $40 million refit in May, the luxury cruise line is unveiling the anticipated digital renderings showcasing new and refreshed features.

Scheduled for completion in June, just in time for summer, some of the many highlights include a new exquisite Lido Sun Deck for sun seekers as well as a stunning Winter Garden. The cruise line also offers an inside look at the Britannia Club Staterooms, Britannia Club Restaurant and five new luxurious Penthouse Suites.

“Queen Victoria’s refit will not only offer our guests an additional 43 Britannia Club staterooms and a dedicated restaurant, but it will also enhance the guest experience in already-beloved spaces like the Lido Sun Deck, Winter Garden and pre-existing staterooms onboard,” said Joshua Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America. “We’ve responded to our guests’ insights to broaden our onboard offering by adding new bar concepts and large flat-screen TVs in all staterooms. The distinctively Cunard experience will continue with design inspiration from previous ships to offer a modern travel experience that guests can only experience on Cunard.”

The ship will be taken out of service on May 5, 2017 to undergo the refit at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Italy and is scheduled for completion on June 4, 2017. Queen Victoria, will then return to Southampton before embarking on its maiden four night voyage, visiting Amsterdam, Zeebrugge (Bruges), before returning to Southampton.

More details on Queen Victoria’s refurbishment will follow over the coming months.
