The staterooms on the Queen Victoria are luxurious and comfortable. Outfitted in royal blues and gold, the décor is a balance of simplicity and grandeur, perfect to promote relaxation, but not at the cost of luxury. Interior staterooms range from 157 to 243 square feet, and come with a small sofa, a mini-fridge, self-serve coffee and tea, and complimentary bathrobes and slippers. Balcony staterooms make up over 70 percent of staterooms onboard, and come additionally with a small sitting area inside the cabin. The Princess Grill mini-suites are a more spacious version of the balcony stateroom, and come with a bathtub, fresh fruit daily, and exclusive dining privileges to the Princess Grill.
Those looking for true luxury should book a Queens Grill suite, the highest class of suite. Decorated with wooden paneling, the suites on the Queen Victoria come with spacious sleeping and sitting areas, 24-hour butler and concierge service, complimentary in-suite dining, and exclusive access to the most luxurious areas of the ship, including the famed Queens Grill restaurant. Penthouse Suites feature luxurious whirlpool baths, expansive balconies, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The most luxurious of all, Grand Suites, comes with two bedrooms, a marble bath, and a spacious dining room and balcony, perfect for entertaining guests. Additionally, a handful of single cabins are available for solo travelers.
Dining & Gastronomy
Dining on the Queen Victoria is assigned by stateroom class. Britannia class passengers, who make up 80 percent of guests on the ship, eat dinner in the Britannia Restaurant, a majestic, two-story grand dining room that wouldn't look out of place in a movie. The cuisine is delicious and varied, and low-calorie and vegetarian options are always available.
Suite-class passengers have exclusive privileges to visit the Princess Grill and Queens Grill. Both restaurants are small, high-class affairs which offer gourmet dishes served a la carte, indoor and al fresco seating areas, and an exceptionally attentive wait staff. The one specialty restaurant onboard, The Verandah, serves gourmet French cuisine, with particular attention to wine pairings and artful presentation. More casual bites are available in the Lido buffet, the Golden Lion Pub, or one of the many cafes and coffeeshops located throughout the ship.
Entertainment and Activities
The activities onboard the Queen Elizabeth reflect the ship's historical flair. Ballroom dancing in the Queens Room is a popular evening activity, and nightly entertainment is held in the grand Royal Court Theatre. Here you will find dance, comedy, and magic shows, as well as solo and chamber music performances. Afternoon tea is also a serious affair, where passengers can enjoy tea and pastries served by white-gloved waiters in the elegant Queens Room.
Those looking for more laid-back entertainment should look no further than the Golden Lion Pub, where pub games and trivia competitions will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. The ship also has two swimming pools, a sun deck, and of course, a luxurious fitness center and spa.
