Cunard to add Britannia cabins to Queen Victoria

Cunard is to add an unspecified number of extra Britannia Club cabins to Queen Victoria during the ship’s next dry-dock in June 2017.

The move will follow the line introducing 30 more Britannia Club cabins and 15 new single cabins to flagship Queen Mary 2.

This is part of a ‘remastering’ of the ship during a period in dry dock between May 27 and June 21.

The line announced yesterday that all accommodation on Queen Mary 2 would be refurbished in time for the ship’s 2017 world cruise instead of later next year as originally planned. Tea and coffee makers will be included in each cabin as part of the revamp.

The decision to increase Britannia Club capacity on Queen Victoria is due to passenger demand, according to the company.

Cunard marketing director, Angus Struthers, said: “The changes being made are a direct response to our discerning passengers increasing desire for space and style, and to meet their rising expectations of luxury.”

The company revealed new designs for Queen Mary 2’s Queens Grill Duplex Apartment and Penthouse Suites, as well as videos on the ship’s redesign and culinary changes during the Seatrade Cruise Global conference in Florida.

Struthers said: “Cunard was the innovator of the luxury suite category, and this remastering will further showcase the richness of ship’s stateroom design, intimate dining experiences and White Star service.”

He added: “Guest feedback was especially important as we explored the redesign of the staterooms. We believe the new designs on board provide a more distinctive Cunard character and will elevate the guest experience.”

Cunard’s twin executive chefs, Nicholas and Mark Oldroyd, are working together on developing new menus and further enhancing the ship’s fine dining, the line disclosed.
