Make it a night to remember

City Cruises York’s famous ‘Party Nights Afloat’ are a great night out for large or small groups, celebrating any occasion. For over fifteen years they have proven incredibly popular with hen parties, birthdays, company socials and leaving parties. Have fun and dance the night away on board York’s famous disco BBQ cruise.

Your ticket will include:

  • A cocktail as you step aboard.
  • Delicious 2 course BBQ buffet freshly cooked on board.
  • Live professional disco.

Remember that fancy dress is welcome (and encouraged!).

Our Party Nights Afloat Cruises are a perfect addition to a weekend away in York for large or small groups. You will have a reserved table for you and your party either upstairs on the enclosed upper deck close to the BBQ or downstairs close to the bar. Once everybody has eaten, the DJ will keep you on the dance floor with hit after hit. Don’t be scared to request your favourite floor fillers and get ready to join with any fun and games that the DJ throws your way.

From the minute that you step aboard to the moment you return to shore, you will have an unforgettable time aboard our famous disco BBQ cruise. Our crew, Chef and DJ look forward to welcoming you aboard…

By purchasing tickets online/on board you agree to our Terms and Conditions of Carriage and accept the Ticket Terms and Conditions.
