Join SS Shieldhall for a family cruise as we explore the Southampton Docks, passing close to the cruise ships Aurora, Azura, Celebrity Silhouette and Sapphire Princess. This is an ideal cruise for families, with a heavily discounted price for children and 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!

NEW - Shieldhall is pleased to welcome Southampton City Council Museum Curator Maria Newbery on board our 21st July morning cruise. Maria will be bringing with her a selection of items from the City’s museum collection relating to Southampton’s maritime history. Ephemera will include menus, deckplans and brochures from liners that sailed from Southampton in the past, including QE2 and Queen Mary. Maria will display these in the Shieldhall saloon, and will be pleased to answer questions relating to them or Southampton's maritime collection in general.

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.
