Cabins on Victoria Anna are spacious for a river ship and very well appointed. They come in a variety of sizes and feature balconies and private bathrooms. All have plasma televisions and satellite reception with HBO, BBC, and Sky Sports broadcasts from Hong Kong. Guests enjoy air-conditioned comfort, or if they choose, they can open the balcony doors to let in fresh breezes. The decor is impressive, with hardwood furniture and rich upholstery, wood baseboards and trim, silk draperies in pale tones, plush, high-thread-count white duvet covers and bed linens, oversized fiber-fill pillows, golden silk bed throws with Chinese calligraphy prints emblazoned on them, tufted head boards, bedside reading lamps, and sculpted, golden carpeting. Red lacquer boxes in bathrooms contain tissues and toiletries, and custom shampoos and soaps are generously supplied. Towels are plush and oversized. Shaver outlets accommodate 220 or 110 V. currents. Guests over six feet four inches in height may have to watch their heads, however, as a raised floor in the bathrooms reduces vertical clearance.

Standards measure a generous 226 square ft. Two large twin beds are raised on highly polished wooden platforms, allowing storage of luggage underneath and eliminating clutter. Junior Suites measure a roomy 319 square ft. Features include a writing desk and chair, as well as two upholstered chairs for lounging. They also contain a fridge and minibar. Four Deluxe Suites, measuring 373 square ft., have separate living areas, and two top-of-the-line Shangri-La Suites, huge at 632 square ft., boast a dining area and larger private balcony. A steward stationed at the entrance to the suites' hallway gives guests the feel of staying on a "concierge floor," as this attendant is on-hand to address particular needs of guests, including restaurant reservations, room supplies, laundry services, etc.

High thresholds, uneven piers, precipitous stairways leading to docks, and the fact that elevators service only four of five floors all make this ship virtually inaccessible to those who are physically challenged. Staff does assert that they are willing to make any accommodations for visitors who are not ambulatory, but given all of the above factors, this is a tall order.
