With recent Government announcements Shieldhall is pleased to re-confirm its 2021 sailing programme. All sailings will take place under the industry ‘Good to Go’ marque for COVID compliance, which is being worked to by Shieldhall volunteers during our closed season. Sailings will take place under Governmental advice. If any sailings are cancelled (through either COVID concerns or by the Captain – such as with extremely windy weather) then ticket holders will be given a number of options. These include exchanging tickets for a later season sailing; holding tickets for the following years sailing season or requesting a refund. We look forward to welcoming you on board this summer!

US Independence Day Cruise with the lively ‘Soulcatchers’ providing musical entertainment! Listen to some favourite soul numbers and get close to the departing cruise ships always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’! Learn about Southampton’s links with our cousins across the water including the role Southampton played with The Mayflower and The Pilgrim Fathers; the Blue Riband Trophy and tales of Atlantic crossings, WWII and the GI brides.

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; listen to an informed commentary on the sights and sounds of the Solent; relax in the Saloon with our wide range of refreshments including tea / coffee; a range of Titanic bottled beers; wine and hot and cold food, available on all trips. On our return to berth, enjoy witnessing the spectacle of cruise ships (including, subject to confirmation, P&Os Britannia) departing the port of Southampton – always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

Children will have fun with our interactive Shieldhall Log Book, collecting stickers from various stations on board!
