With her resplendent marble floors, deep woods and rich fabrics, Queen Victoria epitomises elegance and charm. Sailing all over the world, her graceful splendour can be experienced on short cruises around Europe as well as longer voyages to the furthest reaches of the globe.

With seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a glamorous ball room and a magnificent theatre, she guarantees a premium voyage to all who sail with her.
