Dixie Queen's Big Reveal goes down a treat on the Thames
If you already follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed just how excited we were to welcome people on board the Dixie Queen after her extensive winter refurbishment.
Fortunately, it seemed that the weather was just excited to see her back where she belongs as well – and her Big Reveal event was basked in glorious sunshine throughout!
It was a fantastic evening. Guests enjoyed stunning views of the capital while sampling foodbydish’s canapés and sumptuous gin cocktails, while entertainment was provided by the excellent-as-always Haywood Sisters.
The event climaxed with the Dixie Queen travelling under a raised Tower Bridge as the sun set on London – an always enthralling, stunning scene – which provided many photo opportunities… mainly for selfies!
We’ve rounded up some of the best photos from the event, provided by Andrew Christy - who wrote a superb blog on the evening - which you can enjoy below:
We’re delighted that those on board had just as much fun as we did; here is a selection of reviews from the evening from our Reviews.co.uk page:
David: “It was a truly unforgettable evening! The food was very good, and the alcohol even better - not to mention the great pleasure to ears coming from The Haywood Sisters! Great celebrations of new refurbishments! Congratulations!”
Alba: “Excellent evening on board a superb luxury boat, fantastic hospitality, great service. A great experience.”
Amy: “SUCH a lovely evening. Thank you so much for treating us to it. It's inspired us to hold more events on boats - which could work really well as a more interesting venue than the usual hotel reception! Thanks for a great time and amazing food, and for organising the weather to make it perfect!”
Matthew: “Great evening, excellent weather and superb hospitality. The Dixie Queen is looking good and ready for a busy summer.”
