It’s not long to go now until our Alex Mendham voyage, and many of you are asking for more details about the dances and the pre and post crossing happenings.
Well, Alex is making a video to be posted in the next few days. He will talk about all of the events we have planned as detailed in the brochure pages below. The Bon Voyage Dance, the dances and special events aboard. And he’ll tell you about the themes he has for the dances.
We have produced a beautiful program that will be available shortly online as a PDF to give you all an approximate, day by day, schedule in higher resolution than Facebook allows.
The program looks like it was printed in 1936! Stunning design. A paper copy will be given to each of you onboard. See a sneak peek below. For those of you who loved the vintage events on the original Queen Mary in Long Beach, we have even thrown in a classic 1930s pyjama party listening to 78 records until the early hours!
I’ll tell you what the dress code is for the ship and then those dressing vintage can convert it from modern to vintage for our group. Then add the themes that Alex is announcing to come up with the perfect ensemble. We are only 300 passengers out of 2600, so we will be the best dressed aboard.

Cunard will confirm the specific times and dates of all our venues approximately 30 days prior to sailing. We know we’ll have all the dances, daytime events, and cocktail party. Those are confirmed.
Will the cocktail party be at 5 pm on Monday…or 6 pm on Thursday? The sing along….in the Corinthia Lounge at 4:30 or the Commodore Club at 5:15…….we’ll know about 30 days prior.
The dances ARE in the Queens Room before dinner. But Cunard will not confirm exact times and days until 30 days prior to sailing. It might even be only 21 days. But that is the way Cunard (and all other cruise lines) works.
