Today started with breakfast in The Britannia Restaurant. This time I went for the ‘full works’ for breakfast which consisted of waffles, strawberries and maple syrup. It was delicious and something I would definitely recommend.


Next, we took a wander into The Queens Room where we sat and watched the open rehearsal for the show that was due to be performed on the last night of the cruise in the Royal Court Theatre. It was called “After You”. The cast for the show first set eyes on the script the first day we were at sea and they started to have open rehearsals where guests could come and watch and make either script or general suggestions. This is the first time something like this has been done on board so I am looking forward to seeing what the show will be like once the final evening comes.

After watching the rehearsals, it was time for me to take to the Queen Room dance floor as there was going to be a dancing lesson and what better day to attend than today as tonight was the 1920s formal night. The dance that we learnt was the Jive and I must say it was hilarious as my arm and feet coordination is not the best – but it was really good fun and put me in good stead for the evening ahead.

Tonight, after dinner in The Britannia Restaurant we headed to the Royal Court Theatre for the evening’s show which was Rhythm of the Night. This is one of QM2’s newest productions and the musical took us through the sights and sounds of Latin America. Dances included the Tango and the Salsa and it was quite entertaining.

After the show, we moved back to the Queens Room where the 1920s ball was in full swing and we arrived just in time for the famous balloon drop from the ceiling! As we had learnt some dance moves earlier in the day we took to the floor and started to practice our moves. Tonight, we were all in the mood to carry on dancing so we moved to G32 and danced until the early hours of the morning…
