Such a fascinating experience to be able to wander round this old workhorse and see her working so well after more than 60 years. The 2 hr cruise up and down Southampton water, past 4 cruise ships and the Boat show was excellent and the commentary throughout was very informative. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back again next year.

It is fascinating to travel on this old steamship and as we watched four very large cruise ships leave port, emphasises how far things have improved on passengers ships in the last 60 or so years. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and helpful.

Booked for our wedding anniversary. We had a great day and watched as 4 awesome liners sailed past. Staff were great, very friendly and genuinely happy to answer any questions. Great to be able to see all parts of this lovely ship with none of the usual restrictions and signs telling you what you can't do.

What a lovely vessel, experience and privilege to go out on Southampton water. Very friendly crew, lots of places to sit and get great views, drinks and snacks on board and a raffle was in place too! This was my second time on Shieldhall but first time going down the river.

Loved the horn sound exchange with the cruise ships and cargo ships, made your heart flutter. Thank you everyone for keeping this trip and vessel going.

If you haven’t been on board, make sure you put it in as a must do for 2019.

A lovely afternoon out on the Sheildhall to wave bon voyage to a possy of liners leaving on their cruises. Much hooting and whistling and a few beers :-)
More or less full access to the ship - even bridge and engine room.
Wonderful to see such an historic piece of machinery in full working order and doing its job.
The crew couldn't have been more helpful and enthusiastic.
Many thanks for a great trip.
