Christmas Party Cruises For Private Groups

Would you prefer to call all the shots? Do you know exactly what your group needs to celebrate this Festive season? If so a private cruise is the answer.

We can arrange a private cruise exclusively for your group with boats ranging in size from 10 – 250 people.

Each package is tailor-made to your requirements, so you can choose all the elements that go into building the perfect party. Below is a guide to get you started however please contact our private party specialists on 0203 551 3943 or fill out the enquiry form here >>.

Party Times

The majority of parties like to hire the boat for 4 hours, this allows plenty of time for us to cruise past the main tourist sites on the River, however the choice is entirely yours.

You may only want a 1 or 2 hour trip. Whether you are planning to cruise during the day or in the evening, we guarantee that the river Thames will not disappoint.

Ariel View of River Thames

Hosting your event on a boat allows for the unique ability to embark and disembark from a Central London pier of your choice.

With over 20 piers along the River between Putney and North Greenwich (O2) you will be spoilt for choice.

Christmas Turkey

It wouldn’t be Christmas without food; turkey, pigs in blankets, mince pies, cheese, sprouts! Putting the traditions aside for those non-sprout loving folk, each boat has its own range of menus produced by the in-house catering teams.

What would your group prefer? circulating canapés, finger buffet, seated buffet, three course lunch or dinner, its completely up to you.

Party Drinks

Every boat has a fully licensed bar on-board. Your guests can purchase their own drinks from the bar or you can choose to operate a prepaid account (if Scrooge isn’t the boss).

Some boats also have unlimited drinks packages to get you all in the Festive “SPIRIT”.

Man on dancelfoor

We all have our own individual rhythm, from the side steppers to the dad dancers to the all out ravers. You need to choose something that will satisfy everyone in your group. The aim of entertainment – to create a fun, enjoyable experience for all.

We have a range of options including DJ’s, Discos, Karaoke and Live Bands, Magicians, Caricatures, Casino Tables, Games, Quizzes, Murder Mystery, Tour Guides and much more.

Pound Coin

Now lets get down to business, how much do you have to spend? As with any venue our boats range in prices which in turn reflect the quality and standard.

There are the “cheap and cheerful” party boats which won’t break the bank, 3* rated boats that are above-average with good quality food and service, or the top quality luxury boats with excellent design and outstanding service.
