Cruise on Shieldhall as she explores the Southampton Docks and passes the Boat Show taking place on Mayflower Park and the water. Hear tales about the history of the Docks and pass the cruise ships in Port. On her return to berth Shieldhall will pass close to the departing cruise ships (subject to confirmation), always the cue to sound her 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 volunteer crew; listen to an informed commentary on the sights and sounds of the Southampton Docks and part of Southampton Water; 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!
