Night-time entertainment

Night-time entertainment.
The night, as they say, is yours.
Evenings on board offer so many pleasures: deciding where to dine, choosing whether to dance, mingle or take in a show. And then there's the fun of dressing for the occasion.

Some enchanted evening.


You may anticipate the curtain going up at the Royal Court Theatre for another glittering performance. If you love energetic musical numbers, you’re in the right place too. Equally, stand-up comedy, a magician or a late-night film might make your ideal evening.

Evenings you'll always remember.

Ahead lies the ocean and nights that will be filled with music, dancing, laughter and priceless moments that will stay with you for years to come.
