Pretty Shabby experience. Food and service much to be desired, No Menu or wine list. Ferry in need of a full refurbishment. Only two staff waiting on all the tables. Certainly not silver service, and there was no friendly experience. Day grew from bad to worse. Complaints were taken no notice of and intimated that you were making them up... More

Hmm, where do i start? The large boat was packed with around 200 people last night with groups of people from different companies, Staff were polite and helpful. The buffet food was nice and a large portion so do not eat before hand, The dance floor will get packed but it is welcomed on a cold evening as the body... More

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.
