Booking in is easy and can be done in plenty of time. Loading is very swift with no delays to sailing. On board the facilities are ample for the 3 hour journey and I must really complement the food and service. We ordered 4 different meals, 2 were ready straight away, 2 needed to be prepared. These meals were brought to us in the dog lounge when they were ready, we did not have to stand around waiting. All the staff were very helpful and happy to assist, even having time to chat. The whole experience was very pleasurable and relaxing.

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.
