Cunard Offers Inside Look At Additional Plans For Queen Victoria Refit
Cunard has announced additional plans for Queen Victoria’s $40-million refurbishment, which will begin on May 5, 2017 at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Italy.
Queen Victoria is expected to return to service on June 4, 2017 and will return to Southampton before embarking on her four-night sailing to Amsterdam and Zeebrugge.
Some of the many highlights include a new exquisite Lido Sun Deck for sun seekers as well as a stunning Winter Garden. The cruise line also offers an inside look at the Britannia Club Staterooms, Britannia Club Restaurant and five new luxurious Penthouse Suites.
AFT LIDO SUN DECK: This stunning lounge space has been extended to provide guests with additional deck space from sunrise to sunset. Windbreakers and additional sun loungers and luxury cabanas have also been introduced to accommodate sunseekers on board, while the shaded area has been extended for those looking to dine al fresco. Full beverage service is also available throughout the day and into the evening to enjoy alongside live entertainment.
WINTER GARDEN: A beautiful room for relaxation located in the heart of deck 9. Guests can sip their favourite libation on the elegant lounge furniture while looking out through the floor to ceiling windows at the stunning view. In addition, the comfort and décor has been further refined, with a statement floor and glass canopy.
BRITANNIA CLUB STATEROOMS: In a prime mid-ship location on decks 7 and 8, all staterooms have been upgraded and refreshed with newly-designed carpets featuring a contemporary geometric design as well as the addition of new soft furnishings. New flat screen TVs and, by popular request, tea and coffee making facilities, have also been added to upgrade the stateroom experience even further. The additional 43 balcony staterooms will be further enhanced with premium balconies and a nine-pillow concierge menu to ensure maximum comfort for guests on board.
BRITTANIA CLUB DINING: The new Britannia Club restaurant will offer guests the flexibility to dine whenever they choose. Located in the space of the former Chart Room, the new restaurant will be built alongside the main Britannia restaurant on Deck 2.
PENTHOUSE SUITES: Five of Queen Victoria’s elegant Penthouse Suites have been completely redesigned to maximise space and luxury and raise the quality of guests’ experience even further. The new suites feature floor to ceiling windows and doors, private balcony with stunning sea views, additional storage space and beautiful bathrooms with luxurious whirlpool baths. With butlers and concierge also on hand to take care of every need, the luxurious suites are among the finest accommodation at sea.
