Steamship Shieldhall Experience ‘All Things Steam’ Cruise to The Solent

5th June 2022

14:30 - View all performance times

Steamship Shieldhall , 110 Berth

Box Office: 0844 357 2329

Steam down Southampton Water to the Solent, passing the cruise ships Queen Victoria, Marina and Anthem of the Seas in berth, and on your return see a number of cruise ships depart - always the chance to sound our whistle and play the ‘Shieldhall Organ’!

Southampton has a long tradition with steamships, the first of which, The Prince of Cobourg, commenced service in 1820. Today Shieldhall – and Steam Tug Challenge – keep alive this tradition in Southampton. We will have some steam engines displayed alongside Shieldhall to view prior to boarding.

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!
