'Party Boat'

'Party Boat' is what my son calls the Nottingham Princess river cruise boat that carries passengers along the River Trent.

We celebrated my Mum's 'big' birthday on the Princess with family and friends and we had a great time. The tables inside the boat were set beautifully and we all sat down for a yummy meal once the boat had set sail. We travelled along the Trent passed some beautiful scenery starting at Victoria embankment and cruising all the way towards Stoke Bardolph.
The journey takes you passed Colwick Country Park and Holme Pierrepont so there is lots to look at.

Our little one was very excited about being on a boat with his family and we shared our time between sitting inside the comfy restaurant/bar area and standing on the deck taking in all the sights and spotting wildlife. Our toddler loves anything to do with pirates so you can imagine the games to be played!

I also had my hen party on the Nottingham Princess and had such a great night. The cruise included lovely food from the BBQ, a disco and then transportation from where the boat docked to a nightclub in the city centre. I couldn't have asked for a better night. It was such a good laugh including some rather silly dancing, lots of yummy cocktails and some embarrassing impressions of the 'I'm the King of the World' moment from Titanic!

The above link takes you to the Princess River Cruises website where you can see all they have to offer. I really can recommend these cruises, either for celebrating a special occasion or just for a different kind of treat for the family.
