City Cruises is offering a host of exciting festive packages on the River Thames.

Whether you are looking for an unusual venue for a Christmas party or somewhere to celebrate the arrival of 2012 with Big Ben striking midnight in the background then City Cruises has the answer.

The special Christmas Showboat, will be operating from Monday through to Saturday evening during the month of December. Guests will be welcomed onboard with a drink and as they cruise down to the Thames Barrier they will enjoy a four course meal with wine. On the way back to Westminster Pier there will be a live entertainment and plenty of time for dancing. The public price of £75 includes half a bottle of wine per person.

The Christmas Day Lunch Cruise offers a carefree way of celebrating the special day. During the leisurely two and three quarter hour cruise along the Thames guests can enjoy an aperitif followed by a sumptuous four course meal complete with all the Christmas trimmings. A cash bar will be open throughout.  The public price of this cruise is £105 per person.

Two great New Year's Eve options are available, both offering a grandstand position at Westminster from which to hear Big Ben striking midnight.  Guests will be welcomed onboard the New Year's Eve Buffet and Dance Cruise with a glass of sparkling wine* and enjoy a tasty buffet followed by dancing before celebrating the arrival of 2012.     

Alternatively, the New Year's Eve Gala Dinner and Dance Cruise offers the chance to celebrate in style with a five course sit-down dinner with wine** followed by dancing and a glass of champagne as midnight strikes.  A cash bar will be open throughout both New Year's Eve cruises.  Public prices start from £150 per person.
