Queen Victoria, a cruise ship operated by the Cunard Line cruise shipping company, was photographed during her recent passage through the Panama Canal.
She features the same basic design as other Vista-class cruise ships, though slightly longer and more in keeping with Cunard’s interior style. At 90,000 GT, she is the smallest of Cunard’s ships in operation.
Queen Victoria’s public rooms are mainly located on the lower-level public decks of the ship, 2 Deck and 3 Deck. Unlike the Queen Mary 2, however, there is no central circulation access, the main corridors being to the port side.
She can carry 3,000 tons of heavy fuel and 150 tons of marine gas oil, consuming 12 tons per hour for maximum output. Although the ship burns heavy fuel, it uses low-sulphur fuel in certain jurisdictions.
