An ideal gift for Father’s Day – a cruise on Steamship Shieldhall! Head down Southampton Water to the Solent, and enjoy the excellent Shieldhall Stompers Jazz band! On return to berth, Shieldhall will steam by (subject to confirmation) the departing Anthem of the Seas, Iona and Queen Victoria – 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; pass close to the great ocean liners and container ships; listen to an informed commentary on the sights and sounds of Southampton Water and the Solent; 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!
