Take to the water with us this Christmas!
Perfect for your office Christmas party, or those wanting to get away from scorched mulled wine and the Christmas Market crowds! YULE not want to miss these...(sorry...)
Stuff yer turkey, let's get into the Christmas spirits!
7 festive cocktails headline this 3-hour cruise with enough food to soak them up but leave you able to walk afterward. Oh, and we'll be blasting out the Christmas hits and maybe some 90's classics too...
All 7 Cocktails will be seasonal twists. We'll be bringing back the famous 'Mince Pie Mojito' and coming up with some new delicious cocktails without a drop of mulled wine in sight!
"What! No Turkey?"
A few Karens were taken back by this last year and made it known in the Facebook comments...Luckily they were so outraged, that they didn't attend! What will you be eating? Here's what to expect...
2023 Menu: Festive Pie from Ate Days a Week (Turkey, Stuffing, Root Veg, Gravy) or Vegan Pie (Vegan Mince, Stuffing, Cranberry, Root Veg & Gravy) served with Champ Mash, Peas and Gravy.
We'll be voting 'The Worst Xmas Jumper/Outfit' on each cruise with the winners going up against each other on our social media channels to win 4 tickets to a cruise in 2024!
Why should you book? Guaranteed seating on a heated boat, with prepaid drinks brought to your table without being surrounded by tacky Christmas market stalls!

Refunds/ Exchanges/ Cruise moves We do not offer refunds on tickets, but we offer a 7-day cooling-off period, so if you change your mind within 7 days from booking, we'll happily refund you (unless it is 21 days before the event). Up to 21 days before a cruise, you are able to move to another 2022 Christmas Cruise should your plans change. After this period you will not be allowed to amend your booking or change the date. We can look to help sell your tickets on your behalf if you're unable to attend, but The Liquorists accept no liability for this.
Storm/ Weather Interruptions
Although we've only ever not been able to sail/ held a stationary cruise twice , we do also take into account the safety of our guests traveling to Manchester from all over Greater Manchester and beyond. Should there be storms affecting our event or the transportation for our customers and we have to postpone the cruise, your tickets will be valid on any upcoming cruise scheduled 12 months from the date of sale. Please note there is no option of a refund. If the event goes ahead, but we do not sail, whether you attend or not, you will be able to book on to another cruise using a 50% discount code provided. Please note that no refunds will be offered.
One last thing...
***FYI - The Liquorists' cruises are adult-only events...strictly no one under 18 is allowed on the boat...Alcohol is served and the language gets a little spicy at times...those of a sensitive disposition YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
Although suitable for hen parties, we are not ideal for 'stag do's'... Whilst we booze on a cruise, a 'booze cruise' we are not. A far more gentle and serene affair.... ;)
Any questions about the suitability or style of our events email [email protected]***
Q: Do you cater to vegetarians, vegans, allergens, or those who are pregnant? A: Yes we do! Each cruise differs in terms of offerings. For dietary requirements, please make us aware where prompted on the booking form.
Q: How do we access the boat? A: 99% of the time, we pick up from Castlefield Bowl, just down the steps from the Castlefield Hotel. You will be emailed 72 hours before the cruise with the confirmed pick-up location. Please note the alternative pick-up location is down the steps from Barca Bar, a 1-minute walk from the bowl, and usually when the Bowl has Summer concerts on.
Q: Do I need to print my ticket off? A: No. But have them handy on your phone should we ask to see them.
