Cowes Week sailing to the Solent and see cruise ships depart

Sailing from Southampton

Sunday 1st August , 14:30 18:00

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.

Cruise down Southampton Water to the Solent and on your return pass the cruise ships departing the port of Southampton –  always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

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!

  • This cruise includes ashes scattering to take place at sea. Click here for further details

    Shieldhall will anchor for a short period, for a service and ashes scattering at sea to take place. The Reverend Dennis Mould will be on board and can conduct a short service and scattering if wished.

    If you would like to scatter ashes at sea, please initially contact the Shieldhall Ticket Manager on 0844 357 2329 or email tickets@ss-shieldhall.co.uk

    There is no cost for ashes scattering at sea, other than the ticket price for the sailings (minimum of x 2 persons).

    If you would like to talk to the Reverend Dennis Mould, he can be contacted on 01305 813005.
