Cruise back in time to the golden era of style and design. This event marks the ship's 13th Art Deco gathering. Enjoy a weekend celebrating the artistic movement that influenced the design of the world's most advanced ocean liner of the time. The festival explores Art Deco’s effect on culture, fashion, food, art, interior design, architecture, music and more.

  • A Prohibition Mixology class introduces period libations while a Soda Fountain Tasting will interpret the creative temptations that sometimes made film stars of counter boys.
