Christmas Aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia, Saturday 18 December 2021

18 December

An exclusive evening of fine dining and music on board the Royal Yacht Britannia with overnight stay at the  5* Balmoral Hotel on Saturday 18th December.

This is a wonderful way to get in the festive mood as you relive the elegance of a bygone era with the splendour that is the Royal Yacht Britannia. This will be a musical and gastronomic evening to remember.

A Black Tie evening of music and fine dining in the State Dining Room on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, the kind of entertainment and fine dining such as the numerous Royal family members and heads of state would have enjoyed. This will be a magical evening to which just 43 couples will be invited to enjoy a private viewing of the Royal Yacht and followed by a sumptuous 4-course meal whist being delightfully entertained.

With exclusive use of The Royal Yacht, guests will find the same high standards today as when Britannia was in Royal service. The evening will start with a red carpet welcome followed by Champagne and canapés in the ship’s drawing room whilst entertained by the resident pianist
