  • "Great Service"

    Great service. The WiFi was not working. The normal lounge was actually better than the premium lounge. It wasn't worth the extra money.

  • "Pleasant voyage"

    Thankfully, the seas were calm and I found the journey in each direction relatively hassle-free, check in was uncomplicated and there was sufficient seating on the main deck (in the cafe) for all. It would have been helpful if all the TVs showed the text because they were inaudible over the sounds of the engines, however, sound was unnecessary when what was showing was a football match. Don't forget your reading matter to keep you amused. If the trip were cheaper I might make it again!

Heysham Guide

The village of Heysham can be found on the north west coast of England in the county of Lancashire. The town overlooks Morecambe Bay and is a pretty little coastal village a short distance from both Lancaster and Morecambe. The village has many beautiful 17th century cottages and is well known for its colourful floral displays, which have won Britain in Bloom's Gold Small Village prize on two occasions. Situated quite close to the village are two nuclear power stations but also areas of woodland, open grassland, sandy beaches and rock pools.

Ferry services from the village's harbour depart to the Isle of Man, operated by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, and to Ireland. The port's facilities include a waiting lounge with TV, some vending machines, a snack bar and restaurant, disabled toilets and a children's play area.
