Cunard
General

For over a century and a half, the iconic ships of Cunard have been defining sophisticated ocean travel. They have always been The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World.

From fabled vessels of the past to her present royal court - Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth - Cunard has carried guests across the great oceans and to the far points of the globe in unparalleled style. The most glamorous names of yesterday and today have made champagne toasts in our salons, waltzed the night away in her grand ballrooms, savoured grand feasts of the finest flavours in elegant dining rooms, restaurants and cafes, and whiled away hours immersed in fascinating conversation on our many decks, bars, lounges and pubs.

We invite you to take your place in the rich heritage of ocean travel, and write your own classic adventure tale. Join us and let us arrange and book your journey on the legendary luxury ocean liners of Cunard.

Ship
Queen Victoria
Overview

Queen Victoria: Elegance and luxury perfectly combined.

From 5 May to 4 June, Queen Victoria entered dry dock for a partial refit at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Sicily. This included an upgraded and increased choice of staterooms, new Britannia Club dining, a broader and more distinct bar offering, a transformed sun deck, and several other new features.

Dining, Bars, and Lounges

Gin & Fizz

Centrally located bar to savor your favorite Prosecco, cava or Champagne by the glass or bottle. A great range of premium gins, including one crafted exclusively for Cunard. We'll serve your choice exquisitely garnished with one of the many tonics on offer, or as part of an impressive martini range.

Chart Room

An elegant pre-dinner drink is certainly on order as you relax amongst the decor of this nautically themed lounge and bar. Through charts and cartography, the elegant menu navigates destination-specific stories, pairing a selection of classic beverages with light canapes and snacks - including delectable Godiva chocolates.

Midships Lounge

Overlooking the Grand Lobby, the Midship's Lounge is the ideal place to people-watch or enjoy the live music floating up from the decks below. Browse the tempting gin and fizz themed menu, which includes gin served from an old-fashioned spirit tap; to infuse a more distinctive character. The menu brings to life wines, prosecco, cava and champagne alongside premium gin and spirits, which are all blended to create fresh and inspiring cocktails.

Queens Room

The elegant tradition of Afternoon Tea is a Cunard signature not to be missed. White-gloved waiters serve delightful cucumber sandwiches, fresh scones and tea accompanied by the sounds of the orchestra in the magnificent Queens Room ballroom.

Golden Lion

Darts, karaoke, live sports and ale - everything you'd expect of an authentic English pub. There's even a traditional pub lunch served every day, with classic favourites such as fish and chips, curry, and cottage pie. For a hearty Afternoon Tea, enjoy The Lion's Share, accompanied by a flight of beers.

Winter Garden

Located in the heart of deck 9 next to the Lido, the Winter Garden commands some of the best views across the ship and out to sea. Flooded with natural light, the venue is perfect for watching the world go by whilst enjoying a refreshing beverage.

The Lido and Pavilion Pool bars

The Lido and Pavilion bars serve Queen Victoria's two main pools, which means that you're never too far from a refreshing drink. During sail-away parties, the bars serve champagne and cocktails as the resident band plays. You'll also find Al Fresco dining at the Lido by the aft pool, where you can enjoy cooked to order burgers, hotdogs and fries; perfect poolside snacks.

Yacht Club

Swing into the rhythm of the band under the splendid glass-domed roof of the Yacht Club. The sky is the limit for an evening of entertainment; meet well-known insight speakers, take notice of our resident solo jazz guitarist and dance late into the night with our DJ and dance band.

Godiva at the Chart Room

The Godiva discovery table, located outside the Chart Room on deck 2, displays the complete Godiva chocolate collection available on board. Choose between creamy milk, intense dark or indulgent white chocolates - or delight in all three. Whichever you choose, you can savour each decadent treat in the elegant Chart Room or in the comfort of your stateroom by ordering through room service.

    Ports of Call
    New York, New York
    City New York

    This vibrant city is actually a rich mosaic of many "neighborhoods." Feel the excitement of Broadway with its great plays and musicals. Explore the financial district-Wall Street and there''s Soho with its galleries, famed Greenwich Village, Midtown, with its glamorous department stores and soaring architecture, and museums everywhere. It truly is a wonderful town!

    St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles

    An island under two flags, St. Martin/St. Maarten is French and Dutch. Philipsburg is on the Dutch side and famous for its duty-free emporia and casinos. A short drive will bring you to Marigot, a charming French Colonial outpost featuring shops filled with French fashions and imported Gallic goodies, as well as beautiful beaches.

    Port of Oranjestad, Aruba, Caribbean

    The tiny island of Aruba is the smallest of the ABC Islands, which include Barbados and Curacao. Aruba lies about 15 miles north of Venezuela and has limited vegetation. The landscape consists of cacti and the curiously wind-bent divi divi trees. You may also be interested in climbing atop some of the huge boulders and exploring some of its caves. Of course, the main attractions to this island are its magnificent beaches against the turquoise waters full of spectacular marine life, which lure scores of sunbathers, snorkelers, and divers each year to the island.

    Though small, Aruba has room for some luxury as well. If you travel along Palm Beach, you will find the several miles of this white sand lined with a string of hotels with glitzy casinos, restaurants and exotic boutiques. The crystal-clear waters of this beach are ideal for swimming and all kinds of watersports. However, if you prefer to stay dry, you are more than welcome to enjoy Aruba''s exotic underwater world from the glass bottom boats or on a submarine excursion.

    Huatulco, Mexico

    The entire community is, in essence, a beach, so you will never be far from the sparkling sea and the warm, shimmering sand.There are a couple of outstanding restaurants in the vicinity, and the shopping here is limited but still enjoyable.The Museo de Artesanias Oxaquenas is an extraordinary museum where you can watch artistic geniuses at work.

    Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
    City San Lucas

    Sail past Los Arcos, the soaring rock archway at the extreme southern tip of Baja California that guards Cabo's perfect harbor. This idyllic bay once sheltered treasure ships from the Orient, and pirate brigs bent on those treasures. Now Cabo caters to an international vacation set, and has a strong artistic tradition famous for its black-coral jewelry.

    San Francisco, California
    City San Francisco

    Sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge and into San Francisco's broad bay will surely be a highlight of your cruising life. Once docked along the Embarcadero, you're just a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, North Beach and other attractions that make this one of the world's favorite cities. The scenic Napa Valley wine country is nearby, too.

    Hilo, Hawaii
    City Hilo

    Located on the eastern seashore of the big island of Hawaii, Hilo is an old sugar town and the second-best (after Honolulu) seaport in the islands. Also known as the flower capital of the state, Hilo boasts flower farms and Queen Liliuokalani Park, an authentic Japanese garden. You may wish to visit the black sand beaches of the Puna District.
