The ship has already a whole history behind the back. Originally ordered in 1994 as the fourth HAL-Vista Class. The Carnival Corp. decided to hand-over the ship to Cunard and renamed it in "Queen Victoria". During the design phase it was not possible to create a Cunard image. The decision was to transfer the "Queen Victoria" to P & O - Cruises -UK. She now sailing as "ARCADIA".

A new order was placed. This ship will be also more or less similar to HAL's line of Vista-class vessels, but with Cunard's own twists in the design and slightly larger. In September 2004 the design was enlarged as part of an order of four other ships from Fincantieri. It was originally slated for 88,000 tons and a capacity of 1968. Eleven meters were added to the length raising the tonnage to 90,049 and increasing the capacity to 2000, but the ship will still be able to transit the Panama Canal.
March-2017 Queen Victoria will enter dry dock in Palermo, Italy on May 5, 2017 for the one month bow to stern makeover, which will see the addition of 43 brand new Britannia Club category staterooms with their own dedicated restaurant, a redesign of the liner's Grand Suites and Deck 8 aft Penthouse Suites, as well as a new Chart Room bar. Queen Victoria's refurbishment will see the debut of Britannia Club Dining onboard the liner following the addition of an intimate restaurant and 43 spacious Britannia Club staterooms in a prime mid-ship location on Decks 7 and 8.
