We took some friends from Europe on this trip as they had not been round a port, living in a land locked country. This tour was perfect, it passed some of the large container vessels and car transporters as well as many smaller vessels going in and out of the port. On the day we visited there were no liners...

Went on the 4 River Cruise with lunch. Couldn't fault the day. Although the weather was overcast, the experience was good. The Captain, was very knowledgable and interesting to listen to. The food was good considering the numbers and cooking facilities on board. Staff very pleasant especially chappy in charge of the dining. Good value for money.

Had a great tour of Southampton and surrounding areas on a Mothers Day cruise with lunch. The staff were very attentive, engaging and had some great tales of the local area to pass on. A little silver service was noted from a waiter who once worked on the QE2 which was a lovely touch. The boat itself has the feel... More

We've been on a few private charter voyages on these vessels over the years, always well organised and very professional, and of course safe and comfortable. We took the November voyage (last of the season) out to see the Quantum when she was in harbour. As someone already said, the crew went the extra mile to hang around in the... More

Used this company to watch the Quantum of the seas set sail. Was meant to be a 2 hour cruise but due to the Quantum leaving 45mins late we ended up with nearly a 3 hour one. It was well organised and the fish and chips meal was hot and a lot of it. Well worth the money keep up... More

I have worked as staff for Blue Funnel Cruises and can honestly say that they are one of the best companies i have ever worked for. The team effort was fantastic and everyone is friendly. As a passenger i had a memorable experience sailing down the solent on a summer's evening. Would highly reccomend.

I wasnt quite sure what to expect when I booked this, but the subsequent three hour cruise around the Solent was absolutely excellent. The skipper was very knowledgeable and the cruise was as educational as it was enjoyable. Four cruise iners and a huge container ship were in port as well as oil tankers docking at Fawley and Hamble oil... More

Blue Funnel Cruises are not just for cruising over to the Isle of Wight but will take you to other places as well. For example we joined the ferry to view the 3 Queens when in Southampton dock on 09 June. The skipper knew exactly where to stop and view and was helpful and informative. Have a Google and see...

If one wants a different night out then i highly recommend a party boat cruise down the solent, the staff are friendly , helpful and extremely professional. Cheap drinks , basic but good food for a break off the dancefloor and its lovely to see Southampton waterfront lit up at night standing on the outside deck.
