Catering

For private functions, food is supplied by one of our approved vessel caterers. Sample menus from caterers are available in our Charter Pack (please see below) along with contact details for caterers.We regret that passengers are not permitted to bring their own food or use the bar facilities for serving their own drinks, however we are happy to serve prosecco or champagne on arrival and offer a corkage rate if passengers wish to supply their own.

Please note If you have a food allergy or special dietary requirements then please ensure that you inform your chosen caterer direct.

Music

There is the option of having music aboard, whether a disco, or a small band. We can assist in this regard with providers that have worked with us for many years and if you wish to arrange your own music, this must be approved by Orwell River Cruises.
Both caterers and music suppliers are permitted to board early to set up, but must obtain permission from us beforehand.

Advanced booking is essential, so please contact us to ascertain availability.  Once availability is confirmed, booking forms (found in the Charter Pack, please see below) need to be completed and returned to us together with a deposit of 50% to secure the booking. The balance must be paid at least fourteen working days prior to the date of the trip. We regret that boat trips will not commence unless full payment has been received within this period.
