Hi, we were on board in May, as previous answers say you dont need a mask and they are i thought a bit expensive for what you get, mens were quite basic burglar bill eye masks at I think $5 ladies were a bit more feathry and up to $20, it was lovely on board whatever was happening you will have an excellent time.
Tesco have a good selection of party masks right now !!
Certainly less than on-board prices.
Bon Voyage ..
Just got back from QM2. Mens masks are on sale on the day of the ball for $2. Nice ladies ones are $10. However many the majority of people dont bother with a mask. Pity! The QM is a great ship enjoy yourselves.
