Cunard has revealed details of an extensive refit for Queen Victoria, which will take place this May.
The company will be spending £34 million on the refurbishment, which will be completed by Fincantieri, and completed on June 4, 2017.
Simon Palethorpe, senior vice president, Cunard said: “This investment in Queen Victoria just goes to demonstrate Cunard’s passion for delivering an experience that exceeds guests’ expectations in luxury travel by sea. For the first time on Queen Victoria, guests can enjoy an elevated experience with large, well-appointed balcony staterooms in prime locations and the new Britannia Club Restaurant will be the perfect setting for those who prefer a more intimate dining experience in one of the finest restaurants at sea.”
Queen Victoria will see Britannia Club Dining and Britannia Club staterooms added on decks seven and eight. There will also be carpets, soft furnishings, TVs and tea and coffee making facilities.
The Cunard Grand Suites also will be redesigned while the Aquitania, Berengaria, Mauretania and Laconia Suites will have similar square footage to those on Queen Elizabeth, approximately 1,436 sq. ft.
Cunard will also introduce a new Chart Room as part of the refit, replacing Café Carinthia.
