Home Page Hero Image


The newly-renovated Ambition has a number of accommodation options for guests to choose between, from suites to staterooms and cabins.

Cabins start at just £179 per day, per person!

The cost of all suites and cabins for your FringeShip experience includes all meals, access to all of the ships amenities, all provided Playbill sponsored Fringe entertainment and access to luxury coaches daily taking our guests into the heart of the festival and home at night.

A Look at the Ambition Experience

Buffet-style meals are included for breakfast and lunch, with a la carte dining for dinner. There is also the option to dine at Saffron or Lupinos, speciality restaurants at an additional charge. The Pizza Parlour will be open for late night bites, as well as room service available 24/7.

While the ship and its level of service are second-to-none, perhaps the most exciting part of the FringeShip experience is the life and vibrancy of the festival being brought to you on board. Playbill will sponsor exclusive performances for guests of the ship only, bringing acclaimed talent directly from the festival on board the Ambition. Sold out Fringe shows will perform the beautiful Palladium Theatre late morning, while the best of the festival's comedians will entertain at the timeless Cavern lounge at night. We encourage our guests to make use of the provided transport or local tram to immerse yourself in the festival daily, but we will ensure the festivities and entertainment continue upon your return to the ship.

Don’t miss out on the inaugural Playbill FringeShip experience August 8-15, 2024, as it is sure to become an annual event of high-end comfort, culture, and unforgettable performances!

Transportation To/From Ambition

All FringeShip Guests will have access to a dedicated shuttle bus service to and from the Ambition’s dock included in the cost of stay. Bus service will begin in the afternoon and commence nightly late in the evening/early morning. In addition to provided bus service, the local tram stops right on our doorstep, offering exclusive discounts for FringeShip passengers.
