Halloween Party Cruise

Enjoy a spooktacular party on the Solent with Red Funnel this half-term


- An evening of family entertainment for just £60 -

Saturday 27 October 2012 

New for this year, Red Funnel Isle of Wight Ferries is hosting a ghostly Halloween party cruise to keep families entertained and suitably spooked this October half-term.

On the evening of Saturday 27 October, Red Funnel will be running a special Halloween party cruise for families to enjoy the frights and delights of Halloween while cruising across Southampton Water. There’ll be entertainment to suit all ages, from face-painting and apple-bobbing to magicians and fire-eaters.  Be sure to brush up on your general knowledge for the Halloween themed quiz, and dress to impress, as there will be prizes onboard for the best costumes. A well-stocked bar and a delicious BBQ should keep the adults happy!

Check-in starts at 7.45pm, Southampton Terminal 1, for an 8.15pm departure and the ship will return to Southampton at 12.15am. Early bird prices for the excursion are available until 14 October, and are priced at just £20 for adults, £10 for children (five to 15 years) and free for infants, meaning that a family of four can enjoy a Halloween trip this half-term for just £60.

Fancy heading over to the Isle of Fright? Families can take part in a knee trembling tour around the grounds of Carisbrooke Castle where King Charles I was once imprisoned with Time Travellers Go… Ghosts and Ghouls. There will be a creepy craft area, spooky activities and a ghost hunter to lead tours of the grounds, sharing gruesome tales of times gone by. Tickets cost £7.50 for adults and £5.50 for children.

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is getting ghoulish too, with wizards, woodland walks and a haunted maze. Discounted tickets are available with Red Funnel, with prices starting from £8.90 for adults and £4.70 for children.

Getting to the Isle of Wight is easy with Red Funnel. Vehicle ferries and Red Jet Hi-Speed foot passenger services run regularly around the clock from Southampton and return or one night away vehicle ferry travel starts at just £35*. Plus, book accommodation with Red Funnel from their extensive range of hotels, campsites and more and you can get up to 50% OFF ferry travel**.
