Whilst Steamship Shieldhall has had to cancel her 2020 sailing programme due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to be in a position to release dates for 2021 sailings. In keeping Shieldhall COVID compliant – and working towards the industry ‘Good to Go’ marque during our closed season – we will initially be offering a limited number of tickets for each of our 2021 sailings. There is an expectation that we will be able to resume selling to Shieldhall’s capacity (currently 220 persons) at some point in the future, though this will be based on Government advice. Once the reduced capacity levels are reached, enquirers will be directed to a waiting list, and contacted when and if circumstances change. If a cruise does not go ahead, all ticket holders will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to transfer their tickets to another sailing.

We have introduced an additional sailing to our 2021 programme, taking place on Bank Holiday Monday, 31 May, 2021. The 4hr sailing will depart Southampton at 2pm, returning at 6pm, and will head down Southampton Water before turning east into the Solent, passing Osborne House on the Isle of Wight and venturing towards Ryde. We will be focusing on ‘Secrets of the Solent’ with a full commentary reflecting the history and natural features of this celebrated stretch of water. We will welcome guests onboard from the Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Wildlife Trust.

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!
