ULTIMATE DISCO CRUISE PROGRAMS
ULTIMATE DISCO CRUISE ATTIRE
The overall dress for the cruise is “smart casual”.
Daytime attire is not subject to limitations, so guests may dress in whatever appropriate and tasteful clothing of their choosing. Cover-ups and footwear are required in all venues and dining areas.
Evening attire is “smart casual”, which means no shorts, tank tops or ripped T-shirts in the main dining rooms or premium restaurants. Denim is acceptable. Four of our nights celebrate different themes and offer you a chance to dress up in theme-appropriate clothing; celebrate the era and relive your favorite Disco nights—70’s Movie & TV Characters Costume Night, Saturday Night Fever, White Night and Be My Valentine.
While it is not mandatory to dress in the theme, we encourage you to have some fun and plan some outfits.
70’s Movie & TV Character Costume Party – Bring your favorite characters to life as we remember the iconic Movies and TV Shows from the ‘70s. We’ve seen everything from Charlie’s Angels to members of M*A*S*H* and can’t wait to see the costumes you have in store.
Saturday Night Fever Costume Night – Prepare to heat up the disco floor as you dance the night away in your suits, sequins, silks and Disco best! Collared suits, bellbottom pants, and platform shoes are all encouraged as you boogie your way through the evening.

MUSIC AND EVENT VENUES
CELEBRITY THEATER PERFORMANCES
Every guest will have the opportunity to see a nightly show based upon the designated keycard color (gold for early show and silver for late show).
To ensure that the entry and seating procedure is both fair and easy, we have adopted the following policies and procedures:
- You must present your keycard to the ushers at the entrance in order to enter the theater for the appropriate show time.
- There are four entrances to the Celebrity Theater, two on Deck 4 and two on Deck 5. No other entrance is available for guests.
- Doors will open for each show approximately 30 minutes before scheduled show time. Seats are not assigned and can be selected on a first-come first-served basis.
- Guests are advised to come to the theater with their entire party as we don’t allow the saving of seats.
- Guests who interfere with the fair and safe entry into the theater may risk forfeiting their rights to attend that show or other shows. Our goal is to provide the best entertainment experience for all our guests, and we request that you treat all guests and staff with respect. Any behavior that disrupts the enjoyment of other guests will result in removal from the show by security staff.
The taking of flash photos and recording of the shows violates our contracts with the performers. Since it is impossible to easily discern what type of equipment can record, no electronic equipment of any kind will be allowed in the theater during shows.
