Sunday 1st August 2021 , 14:30 18:00

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!

Cruise down Southampton Water to the Solent and pass the cruise ships including, subject to confirmation, Britannia, Queen Mary 2, Anthem of the Seas and Ventura. On our way back to berth we hope to see some of these cruise ships depart –  always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’! On this cruise our captain will be Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

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; 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!
