On May 5, Cunard’s Queen Victoria will be taken out of service for a multi-million dollar refit scheduled for completion on June 4, 2017. The refurbishment will focus on the introduction of Britannia Club balcony staterooms and a dedicated restaurant, as well as the refreshing of all Britannia staterooms. In addition, the ship’s Grand Suites and Deck 8 aft Penthouse Suites will be completely redesigned, and a new Chart Room bar will be introduced.
In all, 43 spacious Britannia Club staterooms will be added to the mid-ship area on Decks 7 and 8 featuring newly designed carpets, soft furnishings, new flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffee facilities. The new Britannia Club restaurant will be located alongside the main Britannia restaurant on Deck 2, in the space of the former chart room, and offer guests the flexibility to dine whenever they choose.
Additionally, the Cunard Grand Suites will be redesigned and reconfigured to maximize space. The suites’ refreshed designs will feature a new purple scheme, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, and a separate service entrance and hospitality preparation area, plus a separate snug room with TV, a lounge, a master bathroom with sea view, a second bathroom with guest access, a bedroom TV that folds down from the ceiling, a walk-in closet with additional storage units, and a dual aspect balcony.
Cunard guests will also enjoy five new Penthouse Suites on Deck 8 aft, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, defined living and sleeping space and bathrooms with natural light, plus a new Chart Room concept on Deck 2, off the Grand Lobby in the space where Cafe Carinthia is currently located. The Chart Room will feature illy coffee, Godiva chocolate treats and light bites by day and cocktails by night. However, the best spot for a night cap will most likely be the Midships Lounge, which will be debuting a special a gin and fizz themed menu, including a variety of wines, Proseccos, Cavas and Champagne alongside premium gins and spirits.
