SS: ATLANTICA

 

RETURN TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF OCEAN TRAVEL

 

All aboard the SS: Atlantica, setting sail on Saturday 31st March. Featuring fine dining, live bands, floorshows, cabaret acts and dancing, SS: Atlantica is a Champagne-sodden foray into the glamour of yesteryear’s most luxurious form of travel. Return to the golden age of luxury travel with a lavish 3 course meal and floorshow followed by a magnificent Ocean Liner party.

Guests will arrive to a drinks reception, with signature cocktails courtesy of Bourne & Hollingsworth. They will then be invited to partake in a sumptuous 3 course meal provided by Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts all the while being entertained with a decadent floor show as we cruise down the Thames.

From 8.30pm the night will progress into a 1930s style ocean liner party with bars serving classic cocktails and Champagne and a stage holding live floor shows and bands.

The evening’s entertainment follows an authentic ship itinerary from the 1930s, and guests will be entertained by activities and diversions typical to those enjoyed by the P.O.S.H* crossing the Atlantic in those glory days. Gamblers can try their hand at the roulette and black jack tables while music will be provided by London’s finest live bands and singers all performing in the style of the era. So don your finery and join us on deck for a cocktail.

I will wear a gorgeous black evening gown with gloves and an stunning jeweled, feathered hair piece…!

I will wear an 80s neon blue prom dress with a red lipstick and 1920s hair, and I will rock it! 😉

Oh crikey…um… I’d probably wear a 1930s duck egg blue silk dress that was my mums. She used to be an actress so my sister and I had an excellent dressing up box when we little. This particular dress was her costume from a production of The Importance of Being Earnest in the ’70s, in which my Mum played Cecily. I’m an actress too now so it looks like dressing up is in my blood…

no, that’s my son actually, in his vintage (and battered) top hat and tails.

i’d take him if i could and no age restriction.

me, i’d wear my deck shoes, nautical shorts, pirate shirt, pirate patch and pirate crutches (well, the crutches are sort of vital to me!)

this DOES sound like great fun!

I would wear my vintage 1960s pale blue silk brocade ball gown – it’s embroidered with pink flowers and very delicate gold thread. It also has a pretty bow in the front! I’d pair it with my vintage 1920s fur wrap (just in case it gets chilly!) and a pair of vintage high-heel Mary Janes. All finished off with a string of Edwardian pearls and red lippy!
