The 2019 showreel is below and a write-up containing a photo album is available here.

Take this opportunity to wow guests with the enchanting and ever-changing backdrop of London’s famous sights whilst cruising aboard this replica 19th Century paddle steamer - London’s largest entertainment, conference and party boat.

We'll sail east past the Tower of London, on past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round the O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier before turning back for a Grand Finale. Just before we dock, Tower Bridge will be raised. London’s busy traffic will come a halt. The Dixie Queen will pass through in a blaze of coloured lights and the applause of your guest. This is a spectacle not to be missed.
