Queen Victoria

Cunard Line

Queen Victoria. As a ship, she is beautiful – with an Edwardian and Art Deco interior, it really does feel as though you’re stepping back in time when you’re onboard. Queen Victoria is a medium-sized cruise ship, very much targeted at the old ages. Young people like us will undoubtedly appreciate the interior design of this ship, the relaxing Mareel Spa and the fine cuisine you’ll be able to try from the onboard eateries and restaurants. But to some it may feel a bit stuffy, and as though younger tastes and interests are widely-overlooked by Cunard. Queen Victoria, does however have one of the most impressive ship interior we’ve ever seen – and we would sail on her again!
