Party Nights Afloat

Make it a night to remember on our ‘Party Nights Afloat’ cruises

Our ‘Party Nights Afloat’ are a great night out for large or small groups, celebrating any occasion. For over ten years now they have proven incredibly popular with hen parties, birthdays, company socials and leaving parties. Have fun and dance the night away on board Chester’s famous disco cruise.

Whichever theme you choose, your ticket will include:

  • A glass of wine as you step aboard
  • Disco with DJ
  • Delicious BBQ supper, consisting of:

Curly Pork Sausage • Peppered Beef Burger • Marinated Chicken Skewer • Mini Minted Lamb Koftas
Coleslaw, Mixed Leaf Salad, Bread Roll & Assorted Sauces.

Whichever theme you choose, fancy dress is welcome – in fact we encourage it!

Terms and Conditions of Carriage

Before taking a cruise with us, please ensure that you read our Terms and Conditions of Carriage; we want all of our passengers to enjoy their cruise in a safe environment. Thank You.

Halloween Monster Mash Ball

This Halloween, drag your bones down to our first ever Monster Mash Ball! Our famous Party Nights Afloat cruise will be sailing for a special 3-hour trip along the River Dee. We’ll leave ‘The Graves’ (The Groves) in Chester at 7:30PM, returning at 10:30PM. Still plenty of time for a scarily good night out with the rest of the ghouls and ghosts in town.

Your ticket will include a glass of wine as you step aboard and a delicious barbecue supper.

Our DJ will spin his wheels of spooky steel as you dance the night away to all manner of freakish, Halloween tunes and a few dance floor fillers too. The Lady Diana will be transformed into a Ghost Ship and there’ll be a prize for the best fancy dress.

And because it’s Halloween, there could be a few tricks and treats in store too….

Motown

80s Pop Party

They call this the decade that taste forgot, but that’s not true in our book (apart from the legwarmers). This was the era of Michael Jackson, Prince, the Human League and Wham! What could  possibly be tastier than that?

Enjoy a bit of a Club Tropicana vibe (your first drink is free!) with us on the Dee.

Cheesy Pop Party

90s, Noughties and Beyond

A musical celebration for the MP3 generation!

This is when pop got slick and funk is most definitely uptown. It’s the age of the superstar divas: Gaga, Christina, Rihanna and Katy – but we’re not forgetting Justin, Drake, Pharrell and Kanye either.
Relive your not-so-distant youth and release your inner Beyonce.

All together now: “All the single ladies…..”

I am the one and only!

Step aboard for a wondrous, watery journey into sound. Remember Pump up the Volume; the Macarena and Spirit in the Sky? They were all one-hit wonders – because they couldn’t be bettered by follow-ups.

There are tons more floor-fillers on the one-hit list (including Chesney Hawkes), so join us for a fantastic party that really is a one-off.
