Halloween Party Nights Afloat


Make it a night to remember

City Cruises York’s renowned ‘Party Nights Afloat’ offer a fantastic night out for groups large or small, celebrating any occasion. Each October we sail a special “Halloween” version which proves equally popular with hen parties, birthdays, company socials and leaving parties. Have fun and dance the night away on board York’s famous disco BBQ “ghost ship”.

The DJ will be spinning his wheels of spooky steel as you dance the night away to all manner of freakish, Halloween tunes and a few dance floor fillers too. Remember that fancy dress is welcome (and encouraged!). There will be a prize awarded by the DJ for the best fancy dress too.

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.

From the minute that you step aboard to the moment you return to shore, you will have a “freakishly” unforgettable time aboard our Halloween disco BBQ cruise. Our crew, Chef and DJ look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Prizes for the best fancy dress. 

Your ticket includes:

  • A creepy cocktail as you step aboard

  • Delicious 2 course BBQ buffet

  • Live professional “spooky” disco
