Music evening and see 4 cruise ships depart - Sailing from Southampton

Saturday 5th August 2017, 16:00 - 20:00

Spend an enjoyable late afternoon and evening on board SS Shieldhall with the sounds of the superb ‘RU40’* tribute band on board! During our trip we will witness the departure of the cruise ships Braemar, Britannia, Caribbean Princess and Navigator of the Seas – always the cue to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’! A great photo opportunity, not to be missed as the four cruise ships line up down Southampton 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!

NEW FOR 2017! - Have you ever wanted to toot our Shieldhall whistle as we sail past the departing cruise ships? On this excursion, we now have the opportunity for you to do this! Just purchase a “Whistle” ticket below when you purchase your tickets for this trip. We are asking for a small donation of £5 to help Shieldhall continue steaming. Please note that this package is only available to a small number of passengers and this is done on a first come, first serve basis online.  “tooting of the whistle” will be at the discretion of the master on the day.

*Playing all the classic hits from Red Red Wine to Rat In The Kitchen, from Food For Thought to One In Ten and beyond! Based in the South of the UK, RU40 have headlined in major venues and festivals across the South, entertaining reggae fans and ensuring they sing along to Cheery O, Homely Girl, Here I am Baby, Kingston Town and many more of UB40’s string of hits.
