Royal Court Theatre Private Boxes

Take your seat for a thrilling music and dance extravaganza, comedian or singer in the magnificent Royal Court Theatre. To ensure that the theatre venue is as extravagant as the shows themselves, painstaking detail went into designing the Royal Court Theatre, a three-tiered venue unsurpassed in form and function. “From the moment of arrival, guests will be awed by the sheer magnificence of the space,” says Martin Lilly, Cunard’s director of creative entertainment. “The ambience is very much that of a 19th century theatre, with rich brocade fabric dressing the walls, a deep red velvet curtain, private boxes featuring an ornate frieze of gold leaf, and murals framing the walls above the stage. It is everything the Cunard guest would expect.”

Among the theatre’s most distinguishing features is the collection of sixteen private boxes – the first-ever at sea – that frame the stage and afford 48 lucky guests exclusive seating from which to enjoy the performances. Seating from two to eight guests each depending on the size, the boxes are furnished with graceful armchairs and cocktail tables. Individual-sized champagne bottles and sweet or savory treats are served by white-gloved theatre ushers. Following the performance, guests have an opportunity to meet the cast backstage.

With seating for almost 1,000 people and private boxes that can be reserved for a small fee, the Royal Court Theatre and the shows you will see here will almost make you forget you are on a ship – even one as memorable as a Cunard Queen.
