Few ships can have the same blend of elegance and grace found on Queen Victoria. Her expansive double- and triple-height public spaces and restaurants, will be reminded of a more genteel era.
You’ll also discover grand venues like the Royal Court Theatre with private boxes, a Library with spiral staircase and The Grills featuring an outdoor terrace, private lounge and al fresco dining in The Courtyard.
From afternoon tea to cocktails and dining, Queen Victoria is Cunard's showcase on tradition. Aboard Queen Victoria, you will find the grand tradition of cocktails and dining as an anticipated event.
As you move through the day, they will be a wide array of culinary and cocktail venue choices, ranging from the Commodore Club, the Golden Lion Pub and the Queens Room to favorites like the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar and Todd English.
Queens Room, Afternoon Tea
Cunard's formal ballroom, the Queens Room on Decks Two and Three, is the setting for one of the most civilized customs: traditional afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters. Reminiscent of a grand ballroom in a large country house, the dramatic double-height space features gleaming crystal chandeliers and specially commissioned murals. A variety of musicians, including a harpist and string quartet, will perform in the Queens Room on a rotating basis.
The Britannia Restaurant is a strikingly elegant space featuring a soaring double-height ceiling offset by cornices and intimate groupings of tables that belie the room´s magnificent size. Inspired by the dining car of the famed Golden Arrow that linked London to Paris, the restaurant´s Art Deco design influences are captured in its original artwork, wall sconces and a combination of authentic finishes that include polished wood, bronze mirror and gold leaf.
The Commodore Club on Deck 10 captures the essence of Old World liner elegance. Showcasing murals of past Cunard liners in custom porthole displays, as well as two intricate ship models at the entrance, the room's nautical atmosphere is further highlighted by wood inlaid flooring with a compass design. Hot and cold canapés are served while live music plays in the background from late afternoon through early evening, making the club an ideal retreat for cocktails with an ocean view.
Cafe Carinthia on Deck Two mirrors the style and sophistication of a traditional French patisserie. An elegant space highlighted by Art Deco elements in shades of gold, blue and rich bronze, the café is poised to be a guest favorite from early morning until well past sun down. Fresh baked croissants, Danish, muffins and a wide selection of coffees (including cappuccinos, espressos and lattes) and premium Wedgwood teas are served.
The Golden Lion Pub and Churchill's Cigar Lounge represent the epitome of tradition. The Golden Lion Pub replicates a traditional English pub right down to its tabletop blackboard menus advertising the day´s pub fare, including fish and chips and Shepherd´s Pie. Guests enjoy a wide selection of ales and can keep current on the latest news and sports on plasma screen televisions in Cunard´s signature pub. A quiet colonial ambiance defines the 11-seat Churchill's, a wood-paneled cigar lounge adjacent to the Commodore Club on Deck 10 where a vast selection of cigars and an array of Armagnac, Cognac, Port, Madeira and Scotch set a refined and elegant tone.
The Todd English Restaurant aboard Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria will also boast one of the celebrated chef´s eponymous restaurants. An intimate and stylish alternative to your primary experience in one of the ship´s main dining rooms, Todd English affords Queen Victoria guests an opportunity to experience the cuisine of one of America´s leading chefs in a setting of refined elegance. Waterford crystal, Wedgwood china, Gainsborough silverware and Hepp cutlery add the finishing touches to what will be one of the ship´s most sought-after fine dining experiences.
Cunard liners continue to inspire crowds all over the world -- with 168 years of legacy and tradition, the only way to travel to Europe in luxury is on one of The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World!
