Large Enough To Cater Small Enough To Care

Trent River Cruises are the proud operators of The Trent Lady and The Nottingham Crusader Riverboats, which sail on the River Trent in Nottingham. We offer a range of different cruise packages including Sightseeing Cruises, Afternoon Tea, Leisurely Lunch or Sunday Carvery Cruises, Murder Mystery Cruises, Disco Party Cruises, Hen Party Cruises, Corporate Events, Cruises for Tour Operators, Christmas Cruises and much much more.

All of our catering is prepared onboard and we can provide for most special dietary requirements, such as vegetarian or vegan meals, on request.

Whether you're looking for things to do in Nottingham or an alternative venue for a celebration or special occasion, we have something to suit everyone.

Cruises depart from either Colwick Country Park or the Nottingham Sea Cadets and are usually 2 or 3 hours in duration.

Both boats are available for private charter. Our policy is to ensure that any party of 35 persons or more is granted exclusive use of the boat at no extra cost. We do however reserve the right to mix parties below that number.

We are exceedingly proud of the fact that in 2015 we were awarded “Runner Up” Trophy by The Group Travel Awards in the category of Best River or Canal Boat Operator. In 2016 and again in 2017 we received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for consistently achieving excellent reviews. We were also Finalists in the River and Inland Cruise Operator category of the 2018 British Coach Tourism awards.

Phone us on 0115 9100 507 to speak to the "Sails Team", who will be happy to answer any questions.

Sunday 8th April

Overall we had a lovely day. However a few little things were a bit annoying.

The meet and greet at the gate is very clinical and unwelcoming especially if it's raining

Creamy garlic mushrooms I would expect to be served in cream not just cooked in cream 3 portions got left as dry.

We were served our starters first but we're called up for the carvery almost last. This meant an hours wait between courses not good when you have 4 under 16s in the party and sticks had run low.

However we had a good time and the staff were very friendly

Thanks

We're surprised that you found the meet and greet unwelcoming, especially as you mentioned that the staff were very friendly. We are sorry that your starter was not to your satisfaction. I can assure you that this is the first time we have had an issue like this. This has been brought to the chef’s attention and remedial action has been taken. It is our usual policy to serve the upper deck first. However, on this occasion, the lower deck received their starters first, due to last-minute special dietary requests from passengers on the upper deck, which meant that their food took longer to prepare. This did result in a longer wait between courses for the lower deck but the team decided this was preferable to having the lower deck wait for starters. We are always glad to receive feedback, as we cannot improve unless we know what our customers want. We are delighted that you enjoyed your cruise, as this is our primary function, although we always strive to produce quality catering too.
