Dress Code and Theme Schedules for 2023

 Share

Recommended Posts

Here are links to partial dress code and themed evening schedules for 2023. As was the case with the previous schedules for 2021-22, these are compiled from what other members have found on "My Cunard" within the daily calendars for their voyages.

 

QM2: QM2 2023 Dress Code and Theme Schedule

QE: QE 2023 Dress Code and Theme Schedule

QV: QV 2023 Dress Code and Theme Schedule

 

This is still very much a work in progress at this point. Once again I will need your help to fill in the many gaps. If you can fill in any of the gaps in these schedules, please post here what you are seeing in "My Cunard" (or have learned elsewhere). I'll need the name of the ship, the dates of the voyage, and the dates and themes (if any) for all the "Gala Evenings" on your itinerary.

 

If you see anything that needs correcting, please post those corrections here as well. I have made the assumption all seven-night QM2 transatlantic crossings will follow the usual pattern again in 2023. Please let me know if you find this is an incorrect assumption.

 

These documents reside on my Google Drive so I'll be able to update them there with your additions and corrections without needing to attach new versions here. The links I've provided here should always retrieve the latest versions from my Google Drive.

Queen Elizabeth is showing a gala night 6/1/23 but still no info on what the theme will be (which is irritating as I want to go shopping!).

 

Gala evenings don't always have themes. It sounds like your voyage might have a non-themed gala evening scheduled for June 1, 2023.

 

Are you on the QE voyage from Yokohama to Vancouver from May 24 to June 8, 2023? Please let me know which other evenings are scheduled as gala evenings on your voyage and what the themes are going to be on those evenings. Thanks.for your help to fill in the schedule.

Oh, sorry, I see now you are from Melbourne and your posting history indicates you are booked on a 2-night cruise in January. So you are posting about the Melbourne-Sydney cruise January 5-7, 2023 (and of course aren't using US date order).

 

As you no doubt noticed, I previously had January 6, 2023 for QE marked down as a Smart Attire evening. I don't recall where I got that information or how old it might be. I will go ahead and switch that date to Gala Evening now per your report here.

 

Cunard do often schedule a Gala Evening for the sea day between Melbourne and Sydney to accommodate those on the short 2-night itineraries. But they also tend to schedule those Gala Evenings without themes. Case in point is the cruise from Sydney to Melbourne departing later today. There is a Gala Evening scheduled tomorrow, the sea day before Melbourne, but it also doesn't have a theme listed.

Very helpful, thank you! I can relax and stop checking my booking to see if a theme has been added.
