Alongside shows in the Royal Court Theatre, guests can enjoy the Cunard Showcases program, which offers gripping dramas, interactive theater and multisensory dining. They can even go behind the scenes with the “In conversation with” events and workshops with stage and screen talent.
Available on select voyages, guests can watch the original West End cast of “The Drifters Girl” musical deliver a powerhouse performance of togetherness, unity, camaraderie and friendship in “Kings of the Boardwalk.” Additionally, the “Opera Cocktail” delivers a new twist on some of the best-loved arias, duets, and ensembles in a fun, modern setting, as it’s performed in witty new English translations and acted in an engaging, intimate style.
Guests can also look forward to unique puppetry skills during the “Gulliver” extravaganza. Alternatively, they can get involved in solving a mystery with the “Cluedo! The Interactive Game” as they step into a world of 1930s high society where intrigue and secrets are the order of the day.
