Queen Victoria

The MS Queen Victoria was launched in 2010. She's the smallest of the sister ships of the Queen Mary2 and the Queen Elizabeth and has a speed of 23.7 knots (43.9 km/h; 27.3 mph) with a capacity of 2,547 passengers

Below is the 1887 paddle steamer Queen Victoria that had a speed of 21 knots (38.9 km/h; 24.2 mph) and a capacity of 1,546 passengers. She was in service until 1915 and sold for scrap by 1920.

Something a little different on this Victoria Day Weekend for PostcardFriendshipFriday


  1. It is n attractive ship, but why smaller?

  2. Compared to the MS Queen V, the PS Queen V looks like it might have been rather crowded, with only 1,000 less people! Then again, there would be no frivolous attractions on board :)

  3. I've never been on a big cruise ship, only smaller ones.

  4. What a wonderful post! What a beautiful set of postcards--my dear...makes me want to go on a cruise!!! lol ((hugs)) Have a lovely week and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

  5. The Queen Victoria will be visiting Greenock later this month!


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
