"I was very sick"
Crew very pleasant and helpful. Seats comfortable. Good refreshments. Smooth car parking. However inevitably due to choppy seas there was a lot of sickness. The food that my friends ate looked delicious.

"Travelling on the Mannanan heysham to douglas"
Enjoyed travelling on the steam packet ship- Mannanan in April. Ship was on time and the journey took less time than I expected. Probably because the weather was fine. Travelled with children and they enjoyed the journey too.

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.
Douglas is the Isle of Man's largest town and lies on the east coast of the island, on the edge of a two mile sweeping bay and beach. The offers visitors many things to do and see and its promenade is always a hive of activity. Popular things to do in the town include the guided Story of Mann trail which takes visitors around some of the most famous sites, beginning at the Manx Museum. For petrol heads, the TT Grandstand is always popular and is where spectators can get the best view of the start and finish line of the world famous Isle of Mann TT Race. A trip to the Great Union Camera Obscura on Douglas Head is also worth a visit.
Ferry services from Douglas, operated by The Steam Packet Company, depart to Heysham, Liverpool, Dublin and Belfast. Both conventional and fast ferries are available, although the fast ferries only operate between March and November. Facilities on board the boats include shops, cafes and bars.
