What is a Gala Evening / Celebration Night?

Whilst we ask that guests wear smart attire every night on board, Gala Evenings are the chance to dress to impress and celebrate with us. Every voyage we will host Gala Evenings. As a guide there are approximately two per week. As well as gala evening attire to think about, we also have some very special themes for some of these evenings, where should guest wish, they can dress to match the theme and impress at:

Black & White Gala Evening:

A refined, timeless and elegant celebration to begin guest's memorable voyage with Cunard. Eye-catching with a simple monochrome theme, the iconic black and white celebration will be brought to life as the atmosphere is heightened across the ship on board the legendary Cunard Queens.

Dress code: Guests are invited to wear a simple combination of black and white elegant finery to complement the black and white theme of the evening.

Roaring 20s Gala Evening:

Recall the era of flappers, jazz and fun with this playful take on the exuberant, decadent culture of the 1920s.  In a decade when people defied Prohibition and indulged in new and frivolous styles of dressing and entertainment, Cunard is delighted to recreate this heady atmosphere against the glamorous backdrop of the Cunard Queens.

Dress code: Guests are invited to wear elegant gala evening attire and to enhance it, if they wish, with embellishments that embrace the spirit of the Roaring 20s.

Red and Gold Gala Evening:

A new glamorous, elegant and regal theme to complement guest's voyage with Cunard. Celebrating Cunard’s rich heritage and identity, the Red and Gold Gala Evening will reflect the red and gold colours seen throughout Cunard’s iconic livery and sumptuous interiors.

Dress Code: Guests are invited to wear a simple combination of red and gold elegant finery to complement the effortless theme which will be visible throughout the ship.

Masquerade Gala Evening

Travel back to Renaissance Italy, delighting in an evening of mystery and enchantment as guests experience our take on the infamous Venetian Masquerade Carnivals. Watch the drama unfold as hidden identities and elaborate costumes are seen across the ship and the carnivalesque atmosphere fills each and every space.

Dress code: Guests are invited to wear their finest evening wear and accessorise perfectly with an elegant mask to embrace and add to the sense of mystery and intrigue that awaits.

Ice White Ball

Inspired by Alaska’s breath-taking glaciers, we invite guests to sparkling evening filled with elegance and grandeur. To perfectly complement our remarkable surrounding, the Ice White Ball will be an event to remember swathed in hues of pure white, silver and shades of blue. *Only available on Queen Elizabeth’s Alaskan voyages.

Dress code: Guest are invited to wear formal Gala Evening attire with a glacial twist - a simple combination of white, silver or blue attire would complement the theme perfectly, or they could add something a little sparkly to their existing ensemble.
