One of the highlights of the year, Shieldhall will be in the best position to see the famous Cowes Fireworks! Expect some aerial entertainment as Shieldhall travels down Southampton Water too! Live jazz from the Shieldhall Stompers Jazz Band. Book early to avoid disappointment. Subject to confirmation, see the departing cruise ships – always the chance to sound Shieldhall’s distinctive whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!
As part of your cruise, see the impressive engine room with its original steam engines at work and the bridge, with its traditional instruments and gleaming brasswork; admire the ship’s steam assisted steering gear (similar to that used on Titanic); talk to the Captain and our volunteer crew; listen to an informed commentary on the sights and sounds of Southampton Water and The Solent; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with a wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; real ale; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips.
Children will have fun with an interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
