Music can be found throughout Queen Victoria; day or night you will likely hear live music drifting through the air. Pianists, harpists, string quartets and contemporary bands are all resident on board, playing for your enjoyment. There is something truly bewitching about stumbling across a harpist or string quartet in a lounge or bar.

Music on board.

  • Pianist.

    The Commodore Club welcomes you each evening with soft relaxing music from the beautiful ivory keys of the baby grand piano.

  • Sailaway party.

    As Queen Victoria departs port, her resident band often strikes up by the Lido pool. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail or champagne as that day’s destination slips slowly from view and you begin planning tomorrow’s adventure.

  • String quartet.

    A string quartet is the perfect accompaniment to white-gloved Afternoon Tea in QV's Queens Room and also sets the tone for the sparkling Royal Night Theme Balls.

Activity types.

    • Insight and enrichment.

      World renowned speakers offer informative talks as part of our Insights Programme. Experts from the world of art are also welcomed on board to offer both talks and practical demonstrations.

      Our shops offer stunning jewellery, fashion and the latest fragrances, not to mention Cunard gifts. The gallery on board presents some of the world’s best artists’ works for viewing and sale.
