PHOTO TOUR AND
AREAS, and OTHER
The ship's Library has 6,000 volumes and covers two decks
connected by a spiral staircase (above left). The upper level
features a balcony and a stained glass ceiling
QUEEN VICTORIA has an extensive
shopping area. However, it is not set up as
a discount department store designed to move
merchandise. Rather, inspired by the
Burlington Arcade and the Royal Arcade in
London, the stores are separated into little
ships along a Victorian style mall. Connecting
the upper and lower levels is a dark wood
staircase that sweeps around a clock made for
the ship by the company that made the clock in
the tower with Big Ben overlooking the Houses
of Parliament. (Big Ben is actually a bell in
the tower, not the clock as is often assumed).
Above left: The Internet Café. Above right: Cunard Connexions where passengers can learn about computers and
