The wide range of fitness equipment in the Cunard Royal Spa, located on Deck 9 of the Queen Victoria, is more than sufficient to meet your fitness needs at sea. Here you can work out on cardiovascular and resistance equipment and there are classes in such activities as Pilates, Yoga, spinning and Salsa Aerobics taught by qualified instructors. There are a variety of treatments in which you can indulge and be pampered in the spa. In addition, there is a thermal suite with four kinds of steam rooms and a waterless thermal pool.

Because Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, was a great fan of fencing, there are classes offered in this sport on the ship. This is the first of its kind on any cruise ship. There is a walking/jogging track on the Promenade Deck, but unlike other cruise ships it does not circle the ship. Instead it is in the shape of a U and you do have to turn around and come back again. However, you do have an exceptional view when you do workout in this location.

There are two swimming pools on the Queen Victoria – the Pavillion Pool and the Lido Pool. Of these the Pavillion Pool has the normal depth of water and is a great way to start your day with a few laps of the pool. There are two Jacuzziz next to the pool.

Practice your swing with the golf simulator where you can spend time driving balls into the net. You don’t have to bring your own clubs with you to enjoy this experience because you can rent the ones you need at the Reception Desk. If you do bring your own clubs, though, they are not permitted in the staterooms and must be kept in storage units provided for that reason. Shuffleboard courts are also available for those who like this activity.

With the views from the spacious decks on the Queen Victoria, there is no doubt that you will want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Walk the decks and take a rest in the comfy chairs provided where you can get the fresh air into your lungs.
