Tibbies offers family-friendly cruise-style musical revues in a customized dinner theatre aboard the Queen Mary. Tibbies ran a successful cabaret in Orange County for 25 years before expanding to the Queen Mary in 2004. Since then, they have produced three shows a year aboard the ship. One of them is always a holiday production.
- Outstanding voices
- Intimate venue
- Great food
- Limited menu
- Space is tight for the big production numbers
- Choreography can be overly corny
- Low ceilings make you worry for the dancers' safety
The venue is very intimate. Tables are placed right up to the edge of the stage, and the singing and dancing cast are just inches away. If you're intimidated by having the performers close enough to touch, you can request not to be seated at the center front table, but performers sing from other areas of the audience as well.
The dinner selection is limited, but the food quality has really improved in recent years. Children's selections are available.
The shows tend to be well cast with great singing talent. Many cast members are also regulars in Disneyland shows and on cruise ships, as well as in local musical theatre productions. You might also see faces that have appeared on TV or in movies. The cast does double duty as wait staff, serving dinner before the show and dessert at intermission.
