Built at the Italian shipbuilding yard of Fincantieri, the Queen Victoria Cruise commissioning dates back to the early 2000s with its choice of name, a rightful legacy for the British subsidiary of the Carnival conglomerate. Named by Lady Camilla, Prince Charles’ wife at an elaborate ceremony, the Queen Victoria ship is classed under the Cunard Line’s Vista-classification.
The Queen Victoria ship is presently registered to the Bermudian port of registration and is the only second ship in the history of the Cunard Cruise Line to offer circumnavigating cruise voyages.
Cruise Ship Queen Victoria: Technical Fact-sheet
Built at a cost of about £270 million, the luxury cruise ship’s construction followed a budgeting module after the Cunard Line incurred extra expenditure over its then-last constructed vessel – the Cruise Ship Queen Mary.
The budgetary issues also led the company to tag the Queen Victoria under its Vista-classification with the following technical specifications:
- At about 90,000 GRTs, the vessel measures slightly over 964 feet lengthwise, with a width of over 106 feet
- The Queen Victoria Ship has a draft of slightly over 26 feet and a height of about 205 feet
- Propelled by six engines running on diesel fuel, the vessel can generate operating speeds over 23 knots
The luxury cruise liner has a voyager capacitance of 2,014 with a 900-member crew accompaniment without any social class separator for voyagers to be segregated into.
Needless to say, the Queen Victoria Cruise Ship sets a class of its own when it comes to luxury cruising.
