The quality of your experience with Cunard means everything to us. We wish to ensure it’s fit for a queen. Or a king. That you feel like royalty: free to do as you please in sumptuous style. Cunard also moves with the times, which is why the time has come to enhance your experience even further on board Queen Victoria. From 5 May to 4 June, she will enter dry dock for a partial refit at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Sicily. This comprises 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 to be revealed soon. People have asked why Queen Victoria is being refitted when she already meets every expectation; she simply prefers to exceed them.

Britannia Club.

Britannia Club balconies.

Britannia Club accommodation and dining comes to Cunard’s Queen Victoria. We are delighted to announce the introduction of 43 spacious Britannia Club balcony staterooms in a prime midship location on decks 7 and 8, during her refit this May.

Each Britannia Club stateroom will feature all the hallmarks of Cunard style and comfort, but further enhanced with premium balconies, a nine-pillow concierge menu and the freedom to dine whenever you choose in a new Britannia Club restaurant.


Following Queen Victoria’s refit this May, guests wishing to escape or entertain within their Cunard Grand Suite will discover a host of enhancements. These will include a clever configuration of furniture to maximise comfort and convenience, together with refreshed interior design. The many other appeals of a Cunard Grand Suite include: floor to ceiling windows and doors, a separate snug room with TV, a beautifully-appointed lounge, a master bathroom with sea view, a second bathroom with guest access, a bedroom TV that folds down from the ceiling, a walk-in wardrobe with additional storage units, and a generous dual aspect balcony.

During her refit this May, five of Queen Victoria’s elegant, deck 8 aft, Penthouse Suites are being entirely redesigned to create more spacious and sumptuous suites – among the finest accommodation available at sea today. You will then be invited to luxuriate in a secluded haven of space, featuring a private balcony commanding impressive sea views, beautiful bathrooms with whirlpool baths, and your very own butler or concierge who can take care of any details, leaving you free to enjoy a perfect time.

All Britannia staterooms on board Queen Victoria are being refurbished this May. Each will feature newly designed carpets and soft furnishings, new flat screen HD televisions and, by popular request, tea and coffee making facilities. All Queens Grill and Princess Grill suites will also receive interior enhancements during Queen Victoria’s refit to maximise space whilst ensuring unsurpassed levels of elegance and comfort.

Bars and lounges.

Contrary to speculation that Queen Victoria’s popular Chart Room was to be removed during her refit, it has simply been moved. And in the process, refined with the allure and glamour of a classic cocktail bar from the heyday of her key sailing destinations. Through charts and cartography, her elegant new menu navigates destination-specific stories, pairing a selection of classic beverages with light canapés and snacks – and the introduction of delectable Godiva chocolates. In the evening, this elegant venue will serve cocktails linked to celestial charts from which ships used to navigate. Signature specials will be created for different destinations and voyages.

The Midships Lounge will also receive some special attention with the introduction of a gin and fizz themed menu, including gin served from an old-fashioned spirit tap – to infuse a more distinctive character. This will bring to life wines, Prosecco, Cava and Champagne alongside premium gin and spirits, all blended to create fresh and inspiring cocktails.
