Enjoy the glorious weather and stunning views on a Manchester river cruise

When the temperature rises it’s the perfect time to ditch dry land and go on a cruise.

But don’t worry if you can’t afford a Caribbean cruise because there’s something closer to home and a lot more more affordable.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the glorious weather and stunning views on board the Princess Katherine with Manchester River Cruises.

Treat yourself and a mate (or a date) to one of the song-filled evenings that take place on Manchester’s waterways.

The Swing and Rat Pack cruise featuring ultimate crooner Russell Shaun who was born with swing coursing through his veins.

Enjoy drinks on arrival and canapes throughout the evening as Russell gets you dancing in the aisles against the most beautiful backdrop you could ask for in Manchester. Or if you prefer, just sit back and relax and enjoy some classic renditions of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett.

If you’re lucky you might get the odd request thrown in, just to keep the boat rocking throughout the evening.

There are lots more cruises to choose from including a USA special evening on July 4th with a hip shakin’ Elvis tribute on board. He’ll be snarling all of the king’s classics throughout the night

The boat departs from the city centre and all of the evening entertainment cruises last approximately 3 hours.

If you want to explore the waterways of Manchester but would rather avoid the party atmosphere, Manchester River Cruises offers daily tours – and the Princess Katherine is fully licensed and has a fully stocked bar on board if you do fancy a little tipple. Tea and coffees are also available.
