A New Chapter For Cunard Ship After £34 Million Makeover

A New Chapter For Cunard Ship After £34 Million Makeover

Cunard have revealed they are investing over £34 million in the refit of Queen Victoria, scheduled for June 2017.

The elegance of Queen Victoria’s art deco past will remain, while enhancements will usher a new and updated chapter for the vessel.

Senior Vice President of the line, Simon Palethorpe, stated: ‘This investment in Queen Victoria just goes to demonstrate Cunard’s passion for delivering an experience that exceeds guests’ expectations in luxury travel by the sea.

‘For the first time on Queen Victoria, guests can enjoy an elevated experience with large, well-appointed balcony staterooms in prime locations and the new Britannia Club Restaurant will be the perfect setting for those who prefer a more intimate dining experience in one of the finest restaurants at sea’.

Take a look at the refit here…

Improvements to the ship will include Britannia Club Dining, new to Queen Victoria, with the addition of an intimate restaurant and 43 spacious Britannia Club staterooms in a prime mid-ship location.

Guests will be flexible to dine whenever they choose in the new Britannia Club restaurant.

The refreshed staterooms will feature newly-designed carpets, soft furnishings and new flat screen TVs.

The Cunard Grand Suites will be re-designed and reconfigured to maximise space, offering enhanced comfort and entertainment options. The Aquitania, Berengaria, Mauretania and Laconia Suites will have similar square footage to those on Queen Elizabeth at approximately 1,436 sq. ft.

Refreshed designs will include a new colour scheme that takes its inspiration from the line’s history with its signature Cunard purple.
