“Queen Victoria” comes to Málaga

“Queen Victoria” cruise liner at seaOn 26 December, the “Queen Victoria” cruise liner will be stopping at the Port of Málaga, as part of its maiden voyage.

"Queen Victoria" can carry up to 2,014 passengers plus 1,001 crew members.

Nothing in the cruise can be compared to the renowned Queens Grill and Princess Grill, the pair of exclusive dining rooms and their corresponding Grill-category accommodations.

The suites aboard “Queen Victoria” feature butler service with butlers who have been trained to the exacting standards of the International Guild of Professional Butlers. These ever-efficient butlers stand ready to assist with unpacking and packing (using tissue paper between folds to ensure a flawless finish), uncork the requisite bottle of French Champagne on departure and serve en-suite canapés every evening, among their myriad duties.

The stateroom suites aboard Queen Victoria range in size feature spacious private balconies, beautifully decorated living areas, two beds that can convert to a Queen bed, and a bath with shower.

A combination of art deco and classic design distinguishes the exclusive 132-seat Princess Grill and 142-seat Queens Grill restaurants. The art collection aboard the cruise liner (over 500 pieces) has been valued at 1,405,643 euros. It can be found in all common rooms or decks.

The common rooms are characterised by imposing height and big spaces, these being key features when it came to designing the 13 decks for “Queen Victoria”. Elegant areas in the classical English style; intimate corners for health or leisure, like the big spa resort, the gym, the casino, and the 13 bars and cafeterias, alongside the Lido buffet restaurant and other private eating venues.

However, in the grand Cunard tradition and just as in her preceding ocean liners “Queen Elizabeth 2” and “Queen Mary 2,” the most impressive room aboard “Queen Victoria” is the Grand Lobby through which passengers access the ship. Other facilities worth visiting are the Royal Court Theatre, the Cunardia Museum, the library, and the Winter Garden.
