Party Nights Afloat

Rock the boat!

Service update August 2020: Please be aware that we are currently unable to operate the Party Nights Afloat cruises due to coronavirus restrictions and regulations. We hope to be up and running as soon as possible, but we are awaiting further government guidance before we can give an exact date.

Step aboard for a night out with a difference. We set sail every Saturday for unforgettable nights on the water. Choose your theme, choose your date, and sail back in time with us through your favourite eras in music, with the spectacular backdrop of the River Dee.

All cruises depart at 7.30pm sharp from The Groves in Chester and return at 10.30pm. Your ticket includes a glass of wine on arrival, a BBQ style buffet supper, and a disco with a professional DJ. Perfect for birthdays, hen parties, work socials and more. Fancy dress welcome!

Tickets are £33.50 per person if booked online (or £36.50 by phone/the Sales Office) and often sell out well in advance. Scroll down to browse dates and book tickets.

See you onboard!

80s Pop Party

They call this the decade that taste forgot, but that’s not true in our book (apart from the leg warmers). This was the era of Michael Jackson, Prince, the Human League and Wham!
