Steam down Southampton Water to the Solent, passing the cruise ships Iona, Ventura and Sky Princess in berth, and on your return see a number of cruise ships depart – always the chance to sound Shieldhall’s distinctive steam whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!  Shieldhall welcomes on board The Selsea Shantymen,  “… we will sing of Mates and Gaffers and Skippers who are mad; we will sing of heroes and villains of the good and of the bad, but whatever we sing we know that you will join in every song and if you don’t we will just go ON and ON and ON!”

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 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. Courtesy parking available close to berth.

Children will have fun with an interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
