Victoria Cruises announces new stateroom designations amidst ongoing refurbishments

As the recognized pioneer for luxury river cruising on the Yangtze, Victoria Cruises is constantly assessing and upgrading its facilities – and as a result of significant renovations to it’s entire five-star fleet over the years, the pre-eminent cruise line is revising its stateroom categories to reflect the upgraded amenities.

As of Jan. 1, accommodations formerly known as standard cabins on the Victoria Jenna, Victoria Anna, Victoria Katarina, Victoria Prince, Victoria Queen, Victoria Empress and Victoria Star will now be designated as Superior Staterooms due to the fact that all staterooms on these vessels are equipped with private balconies to enhance guests’ enjoyment of the scenic Three Gorges experience.

In addition, the five-star cruise line recently announced plans to renovate the Victoria Anna and Victoria Katarina to include the same Executive Suite privileges offered on the Victoria Jenna (Executive Deck, pictured right)

Featuring concierge service, suite accommodations, an exclusive lounge area and private, a la carte restaurant, Victoria Cruises’ “Executive Suite Decks” will provide discerning guests with a superior level of personalized, white-glove service beyond the five-star service routinely offered to other travelers on Victoria Cruises’ lavish vessels.  These new Executive Suites will replace the Junior Suite category on the Victoria Anna and Victoria Katarina, however, Junior Suites will still be available on the Victoria Prince, Victoria Queen, Victoria Empress and Victoria Star.

“More than just a new marketing direction, these new designations reflect the enhanced comfort, amenities and service now offered by Victoria Cruises, and emphasize exactly what sets us apart as the undisputed leader when it comes to luxury Yangtze River cruising,” said Larry Greenman, manager of public relations and customer service for Victoria Cruises.

Similar to the Executive Suites onboard the Victoria Jenna, Victoria Anna and Victoria Katarina, passengers in the larger Deluxe Suites and even more spacious Shangri-La Suites onboard those vessels will enjoy the same Executive Deck privileges, including concierge service, use of exclusive lounge areas and private, a la carte dining.

Travelers onboard the Victoria Prince, Victoria Queen, Victoria Empress, Victoria Star or Victoria Rose can also take advantage of Deluxe or Shangri-La Suite accommodations, however, Executive Deck amenities are not available on those ships at this time.

With 63 Standard Cabins and two Shangri-La Suites, the Victoria Rose is now the only remaining vessel in Victoria Cruises’ Classic Ship category, however, passengers on the Victoria Rose enjoy the same level of service and delectable cuisine offered on Victoria’s five-star ships.  All other vessels in Victoria Cruises’ luxury fleet have received the coveted five-star rating from the China National Tourist Administration and are classified as Premier Vessels.
