Cruise the Costa del Salford with Elvis, Sinatra and Santa Claus
The hugely popular Manchester River Cruises are back for the party season. They've got a packed calendar of events coming up - including live music nights and daytime Santa Claus cruises for families. If you're looking for a night out or day trip with a difference, this is it.
Once aboard, you'll see the city as you've never seen it before as you cruise the waterways of Manchester and Salford. With a fully-stocked bar and table service, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the entertainment, atmosphere, and iconic views.
Here's what's coming up:
Broadway Boat Party
5 Nov, 19 Nov, 4 Dec, 9 December, 21 Jan, 5 Feb
Gather your crew for a cruise boat singalong to all the best Broadway hits. Stellar singer Gemma Louise will bring you songs from shows including Grease, Mamma Mia and Saturday Night Fever, while you sit back, or dance in the aisles, drink in hand. If you love musicals, and want to hear your favourite anthems in a completely different setting, it's for you.
28 Oct, 4 Nov, 25 Nov, 22 Dec
The OG of Rock and Roll is reborn for one night only onboard the Princess Katherine party boat, thanks to smooth-voiced Elvis tribute act Chris Hudson. Climb onboard, get the fizz flowing, and let the live music take you to your happy place. You'll be singing along to Suspicious Minds in no time. Meanwhile, the stunning sights of Salford Quays at night slip by outside.
Swing & Rat Pack

All aboard for Vegas vibes courtesy of singer Russell Shaun who nails all the classics of Swing and Rat Pack music. Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Dean Martin; sing and dance along or just enjoy the drinks and snacks brought to your table. Girls' night, date night, mate night - if you love the old-time crooners, this the cruise for you.
Cruise with Father Christmas
From 21 Nov - 24 Dec
It's the ultimate Christmas treat for the little ones (and the adults will like this one too). Take a cruise with Santa Claus - there'll be mulled wine and mince pies for the grown-ups, cookie and juice for the little ones, and a Christmas goody bag of activities for everyone to enjoy. And of course, a chance to meet Santa - he'll have a present for all the children. Father Christmas on a boat - excitement levels will be high.
