Thousands of cruise passengers will join in with tribute nights, a casino cruise and a raft of cruises featuring talented local performers; all taking place on the world-famous Mersey Ferry

Mersey Ferries has announced that 2019 will see its busiest cruise programme ever, with 30 spectacular cruises taking place on board the world-famous River Mersey. The season of Evening Cruises planned for 2019 will delight fans of entertainment, as a host of musically led evenings have been planned, with the return of the popular Summer Evening Cruises and tributes to much-loved artists, including ABBA, Take That, Spice Girls, Queen, George Michael and the city’s favourite sons, The Beatles.

The programme will also include evenings dedicated to music through the ages, including a Big Band Swing Cruise and Motown Cruise. The Old Skool Cruise, 90s Party Cruise, Sounds of the 70s and an 80’s Party Cruise, will all have live DJs spinning classic hits to keep the audience on their feet all night. A cruise centred on cult classic, Rocky Horror Picture Show will recreate the sounds of the cinema sensation, bringing all the humour and outrageousness of the show to the river, whilst a range of other cruises, including a Las Vegas-themed cruise with a fun casino on board, will entertain those who enjoy an innocent flutter on the roulette wheel.

Thousands of passengers will dance the night away, enjoying the wide range of Evening Cruises, running between April and September, whilst taking in the breath-taking views of Liverpool’s iconic riverside. Gary Evans, from Mersey Ferries said: “This year will be our most ambitious programme of cruises and events, and we’ve looked to provide a range of options for everyone. We’ve spent time working with our customers to understand what works for them, and what, from previous years, they’ve enjoyed from our entertainment offering.

Taking place between May and September, Summer Evening Cruises feature live entertainment from talented local performers and run for two and a half hours. Tickets for the 2019 Evening Cruise programme start from £16.00 per person.
