    What ship ( not entertainment) has the best WOW factor theatre.

    We love the theatres on the ships and we have voted our 'best looking theatre' on the Rapsody of the seas...............love the way the seats on the sides come in at angle and the layout......it has a certain charm........................whats yours and why?

    Do not like the Eclipse on Celebrity so many columns in the way.........gets our worst vote

    Cunard's Queen Vic and Queen Lizzy have very attractive victorian style theatres with Royal Boxes.



    Oasis/Allure must have the biggest afloat.

    Both ships also have the wonderful 'Auqu-Theatre' (and show).

        And don't forget, On certain evenings you can book a private box for your party and be escorted by a Cunard liveried Bell Boy, drink champagne and tuck into chocolates.... at an extra cost ....But it's worth it for that special occasion

          I thought NCL Jade was spectacular.....it's the only theatre that sticks in my memory, of the ones I've seen.

              Hi I assume the new megaships will have theatres with the biggest Wow factor, I tend to avoid these vessels so I can't comment. I have sailed on the three Cunard vessels and both the QV and QE were impressive but some of the sightlines on the QM2 prevented this ship from entering the list. I prefer the small intimate theatres on smaller vessels, they have no Wow factor but you have the sense of a better contact with the performers.

                The classiest has to be QM2 I think? I like the Eclipse theatre, I like to be able to sit on the high chairs at the back on top tier....
                P&O Artemis/Oceana/Aurora/Azura/Britannia
                RCI - Independence/Anthem/Ovation of the Seas
                Celebrity Eclipse
                Cunard QM2/QE/QV
                Royal Princess/Caribbean Princess

                  I like the look of the Royal Boxes.............If you had to choose between the two ships which one.......as we are looking to book one of these this year.....

                    Hi I am not a "loyal" Cunarder (only 6 cruises with this line) but when I was on the QE many of the past passengers (with many more Cunard voyages than me) thought than the QV was better. However, the QE was only on her 4th cruise and the she may have "not bedded in" at that time.

                      Overall we think Costa's theatres take some beating you have a great choice of seats some with tables in front of you with wide isles (?) spread over three floors wherever we have sat we have enjoyed good views.

                      Thomson are our worst.

                        So Thomson is out..........I have never tried Costa.....is there a ship you would reccomend on the Costa cruise line.
                        I like the look of the itinerary.....that leaves Cape town in south Africa through the Indian ocean....
