Hi Christine, thank you for your review and we are glad you generally had a good evening with us. The party night you attended was a public scheduled 80's Night. This is offered out to everyone not exclusively to Hen parties although they are more than welcome to share their special evening with us. The night you attended happened to... More

Booked to take my elderly dad for fathers day. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. The commentary was informative and we saw 'another side' of Southampton Docks. Very interesting. We pre-ordered our cream tea and ate it as soon as we arrived so we could sit back and enjoy the cruise. Highly recommend for a... More

We went with a group for a birthday celebration. Most of us remembered the '70 and were pleasantly surprised by the number of younger people on board. At least half were in hen parties, apparently stags are not allowed! The boat seemed well managed with friendly bar staff and reasonable prices for drinks. The course followed left from Ocean Village,... More

We have just had a very pleasant trip with Blue Funnel Cruise's. We viewed the cruise ships leaving Southampton. We had full commentary from Captain Rob and a really good Chicken & Chips in a basket with salad prepared by Trevor & Paul. A big thank you to all at Blue Funnel. Well worth a trip.

I did the 3 hour cruise which goes from Ocean Village down Southampton Water as far as Fawley and then back up the Hamble, turnaround and then up Southampton Water viewing most of the ships in port before returning to Ocean Village. The ship was very spacious with plenty of room to sit both inside and out. Everything was very... More

We did a 3 hour sail from Southampton out into the river. We were on a group cruise which started with a trip along to see a brand new cruise ship and the start of where the titanic sailed from. The commentary that we had was fun and informative. The bar was very reasonable and the crew were very friendly.... More

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
