INFOS – Cunard Cruises Queen Victoria QV


They are the landmarks that define our world — the towering ruins of the ancient Egyptian temples at Karnak and Luxor; the massive locks of the Panama Canal; and the Acropolis in Greece, where Socrates taught philosophic ideals to his student, Plato. And, the most captivating sights — a silk vendor outside a Malaysian mosque, a Maori dancer in Auckland, the daring cliff divers in Acapulco or musicians strolling a sandy stretch of the Arabian Sea. On this holiday of a lifetime, you will cross the world’s many great oceans, visiting all these destinations and more. And you will have the added excitement and privilege of being on the Maiden World Cruise of Cunard’s newest royal — Queen Victoria. Like her sister ships, she captures all the elegance of the Cunard vessels of the past, with many fantastic new features — including the gorgeous indoor/outdoor Winter Garden, the stunning two-level Library, a three-tiered Grand Lobby, the Royal Court Theatre with private boxes, and al fresco Grill dining in The Courtyard — to name just a few. So come, sail the world with Queen Victoria — and like those who have made similar journeys before you, return forever changed.
