The Center For Disease Control (CDC) performs unannounced inspections, which are conducted twice a year and required for any cruise ship with an international itinerary calling at a U.S. port. Vessels are evaluated proper food handling, preparation and storage procedures, and overall galley cleanliness. Ships’ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.

Play Zone

Younger members of the family and perhaps some adults will not want to leave The Play Zone filled with toys, games and activities. A range of engaging activities will be thoughtfully prepared by youth staff including sports, arts and crafts and a disco.

The teen area, with its computers and relaxed layout provides an ideal setting for older children to meet and make new friends. Adjoining the Play Zone is the outside pool area where the whole family can enjoy themselves.

Please note that children must be a minimum of two-years-old to participate in the Nursery without parental supervision.

Queen Victoria joined the Cunard fleet in December 2007. With luxurious marbles, woods, plush carpets, rich fabrics and soft furnishings, this ship simply exudes elegance.

Queen Victoria is the running mate to Queen Mary 2, and Queen Elizabeth. Until November 2008, she also operated alongside Queen Elizabeth 2. Queen Victoria is of the same basic design as other Vista-class passenger vessels, though slightly longer and more in keeping with Cunard's interior style. At 90,000 GRT, she is the smallest of all three Cunard ships, after the RMS Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth. Ship facilities include seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a ballroom, and a theatre. 

Queen Victoria was refurbished in 2011. Upgrades include stateroom upgrades, Grand Lobby and Chart Room makeover, new carpet in the Britannia Restaurant, and Queen's Room dance floor refinish.

Queen Victoria Upgrades

posted January 23, 2015

Queen Victoria set out from Southampton in tip-top form having just returned from an intensive 20 day refurbishment at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg. You can view footage of Queen Victoria's refurbishment here.

Summary of Enhancements:

Upper Grill Terrance was enhanced;
• nine single staterooms were installed;
• sunbathing areas were added;
• beverage provision in the ship’s informal Lido restaurant;
• eight internet stations were added in the library;
• new paint, carpeting and bed mattresses in every stateroom.

In honor of the company’s anniversary, Queen Victoria welcomed her World Voyage passengers aboard with a commemorative flag-raising ceremony which took place at the ship’s mast. The ship’s first call will be Ponta Delgada in the Azores on 23 January before she sails to the Caribbean, transits the Panama Canal and heads for Hawaii and Australia.
