      Our young passengers are well catered for with activities through the day and into the evening, all age appropriate and fully staffed.
    • Music and theatre.

      You’ll find music is at the very heart of Queen Victoria, with the sound of live performances gently drifting through the ship throughout the day and into the evening. The Royal Court Theatre offers West-End style shows, delivered by QV's cast of very talented dancers and singers.

      Queen Victoria’s wine cellar is extensive. Join our sommeliers to learn more about some of the special vintages we carry.
    • Dancing.

      The Queens Room with its sprung dance floor and crystal chandeliers is simply stunning. Dance the night away at one of the glamorous balls, or for something more contemporary head to the Yacht Club with superb dedicated jazz music, followed by a DJ and dance band late into the night.
    • Pub entertainment.

      The Golden Lion is a faithful recreation of an English pub, complete with live sports, pub games and quizzes. It also boasts an authentic pub lunch menu including tempting fish and chips and traditional Ploughman’s, or enjoy The Lion's Share, a hearty Afternoon Tea selection accompanied by a flight of beers.
