Found on each one of our Queens, the Royal Court Theatre takes centre-stage in your holiday entertainment. From seminars and lectures from guest speakers in our Insights programme, to stand-up comedy, dance productions, live music and West-End style performances, the Royal Court Theatre is a perfect venue to visit, with friends old and new.

The Royal Court Theatre on our Queens

Our grand theatre is present on each Cunard ship, but there are some differences. Treat yourself to a theatre box on Queen Elizabeth or Queen Victoria, or enjoy cabaret seating on Queen Mary 2 to bring you even closer to the action.

Queen Mary 2

Ever the stand-out from her sisters, our flagship boasts a very different Royal Court Theatre, with a much wider auditorium, a fabulously-lit stage, and cabaret-style seating.

Queen Victoria

In traditional Cunard red and gold, this glittering venue spans decks 1, 2 and 3, and offers 850 seats, plus 12 private boxes and several wheelchair spaces.

Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth's theatre is similar to Queen Victoria's, only decked out in a beautiful royal blue. Splash out on a theatre box for a night, and enjoy canapes and champagne during the show.

Queen Anne

Echoing the elegance and grandeur of great art deco concert halls, Queen Anne's Royal Court Theatre will be the centrepoint of her exciting entertainment programme.

Private boxes

For an extra special performance, why not hire a private box? Available on Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, you can enjoy finger desserts and champagne cocktails in a private lounge before the show, and enjoy continued private service throughout, with chocolates and champagne. Reservations can be made on board up until 3pm on the day of the performance, and are available at an additional charge, plus a 15% service charge, per couple.


The Royal Court Theatre, on all ships, includes wheelchair-accessible spaces which are available on a first-come first-served basis. Our Entertainment team are on hand to help you find a space, and assist with safe storage of any mobility equipment.

On Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Court Theatre also has two wheelchair-accessible boxes for private hire.

If you are deaf or have impaired hearing, our production manager can provide a transcript of songs. Please speak to the Entertainment team for assistance before the show begins.
