Dear Shieldhall supporter,
Steamship Shieldhall will be releasing her 2021 sailing programme on Wednesday 14 October at 7am. We very much hope to be sailing again after remaining in berth throughout 2020, but will initially be limiting the number of tickets sold to remain COVID compliant. As a ticket holder from 2020 who kindly supported Shieldhall in transferring your ticket to our 2021 programme, we would like to give you the first opportunity to see what we have planned. You may transfer your tickets to a ‘like for like’ sailing, eg. select any of our 2hr sailings in 2021 if you held a 2hr sailing ticket from 2020, or if you had a ticket for a particular sailing such as the Cowes Fireworks or Bournemouth Air Festival, you can transfer these straight across. Those with a 3hr cruise booked will notice that we have introduced 3 ½ hr sailings – this will allow Shieldhall additional time to disembark and return to what we hope will be a permanent berth within Southampton Docks next year.
Our ticket manager will look to get in touch over the next week via telephone or email to discuss your options and check held details are correct. Whilst recognising that the picture regarding COVID-19 is fast moving and that spring / summer 2021 is some way off, we hope that you will be able to join us again as we keep Shieldhall ‘Alive and Steaming’.
