A liner in the grand tradition. Affectionately referred to as the 'baby' of the P&O fleet, Victoria is a classic liner with a yacht-like spirit. In an era of ever-larger mega-ships, she retains a sense of intimacy, grace and rare sophistication.
Victoria's smaller size allows her access to ports denied her larger sisters, so her itineraries tend to be a touch more adventurous. The other main benefit of her size is that it creates a more intimate atmosphere that encourages great camaraderie among her passengers. For all this, there's no lack of space aboard the Victoria. Designed for long, luxurious cruises, her staterooms are spacious and she boasts broad lidos and several indoor and outdoor promenades.
Rich in wood-paneling, precious works of art and lavish detailing in brass and gold leaf, Victoria is, in many respects, exactly what you'd expect a classic ocean liner to be. It's no mean feat to combine ultra-modern seafaring technology and efficiency with the best of traditional service, courtesy and grace, but somehow Victoria and her crew manage to do just that and make it look easy.
So devoted to Victoria and her unique charm are many of our passengers, that they simply won't hear of cruising on any other ship. Her recent refurbishment has only added to her appeal. Intrigued?
The Lido Deck offers lots of fun and entertainment. In the Starlight Lounge you will find a 'room at the top experience' with an ever changing view - the perfect place for a pre-dinner cocktail! The annexes are ideal for private parties too! The Carib Lounge is usually the liveliest place on the ship come nightfall. The circular bar creates a secluded area becoming the disco later into the evening. During the day the Carib is a pleasant place to escape the sun and cool down with a refreshing cocktail. Wander down to R Deck where you will find the Princess Theatre - the perfect place for classical concerts. The International Lounge is the main show lounge. The International Bar is secluded and just the right place for sharing the company of someone special and a quiet after-dinner drink. The Riviera Bar is a good alternative to other bars as a pre or post dinner venue. Just sit back and enjoy the soft tinkling of the ivories!
