The 10th Chippenham Scout group are welcoming fellow scouts from Florida, USA as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations. The Scouts will be on board during the morning finding out what skills are needed to operate a steamship, undertaking activities such as rope handling, map reading, fire fighting and rib rescue. The scouts subsequent afternoon cruise is open to all, price £20 per adult, with up to six accompanied children under 16 years of age welcomed free of charge. It's the perfect introduction to life on the water! 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; walk the teak decks; relax in the Saloon with our 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 our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board, whilst there will be a number of deck games to play too!
