Cunard’s Queen Victoria will come out of its current $40 million rebuild in June with a new sundeck stateroom and additional cabins.

Cunard showcased the changes in a video released this week.

The ship, currently in drydock at Fincantieri’s Palermo shipyard, will see its capacity increased from 2,021 to 2,081 with a stateroom reconfiguration and additions—30 new Britannia cabins will be added with a new aft lido sundeck and 43 additional Britannia Club staterooms will be constructed in a prime mid-ship location on the seventh and eighth decks.

Five new Penthouse Suites will be installed on deck eight aft, each with floor-to-ceiling windows, renovated living and sleeping space, and new shutters in the bathrooms to allow natural light.  

The ship will also get a new Chart Room, a Cunard first, on Deck 2 off the Grand Lobby—where the current Café Carinthia sits—featuring illy Coffee, Godiva chocolates and evening cocktails.
