Southampton - Christmas Party Dinner and Dance

A Unique Christmas Party Event

The Princess Caroline is almost certainly the most unique venue in Southampton for your 2019 Christmas party. Let us take all the hassle of event management away and will make your evening truly memorable. So many companies and groups come back year after year.

If you’d prefer exclusive hire of the ship, the minimum number of guests is 95 to 120 for a Friday or Saturday night cruise. For availability please call 07976 594663.

Our joint Christmas Parties are ideal for small businesses or departmental jollies. The cost will be from £36.00 per person all inclusive of ship hire, cruise, fabulous food (we can discuss your requirements) plus a DJ & dancing the rest of the evening. It’s a guaranteed fun night with a lot of repeat business.

We also have several joint public Christmas party cruise dates, lunches or dinners (minimum of 8 guests please).

Plan your Christmas party night aboard the Princess Caroline

Southampton Christmas Party Yacht - Princess Caroline

Christmas Dinner Dance Cruise Southampton

The restaurant is simply stunning and looks like the orient express with lots of brass & wood. A guaranteed special evening for your guests or clients. Please feel free to come down to look around & meet Andi and the team.

All food is freshly prepared on board the ship with the freshest ingredients only.
Consequently the food is delicious and we have lots of repeat visitors.
We are happy to suggest other menu ideas to suit different budgets or styles – please just let us know.

If you have a specific budget that you are trying to work with then that can help me to put you into a date where I have a second daytime event or two with similar menus making it light work for the chefs for example.

Deposit will be 50% per person with remainder paid six weeks before party.
