Have an Un-Valentine's Day on board the Steamboat Bordello

1840 – 1930 – the heyday of the Mississippi paddle steamer. These floating palaces of sin plied their trade up and down the mighty Mississippi from New Orleans to St Louis. Specialising in unlicensed gambling, prohibited liquor and transactions of a carnal nature, the pleasure boats were the last bastion of Southern lawlessness.

Now, step aboard the majestic Dixie Queen as The Last Days of Decadence brings a little of this lost age to the River Thames with a floating fantasmagoria of rogues, riverboat gamblers, good time girls, snake oil salesmen, fallen southern belles, confederate rifles, yankee doodle dandies, bootleggers, carnies, gypsies, tramps and thieves.

The Steamboat Bordello sails again in a more intimate UnValentines Day affair with just 200 passengers aboard the beautiful vessel PS Elizabethan. The cruise will feature music by some of the best musicians and vintage DJs in town as well as down-right naughty cabaret by Ruby Blues.
