  • "Dog-owners beware!"

    We chose to cross to the Isle of Man from Heysham because we were travelling with a dog and preferred her to be able to get out of the car with us. Unfortunately, we found the dog 'lounge' was really too small and cramped, too hot and therefore, not very relaxing for either pets or their owners (there was one more dog than the maximum allowed on our outward journey) Although the crossing home was better, as there weren't as many dogs travelling, we have to say we felt like 2nd class citizens confined to the 'dog house' despite the fact that we'd paid extra for the privilege. Thank you to the friendly crew member who brought sausages for the dogs on our way home, which was a nice touch. We were more than happy with all other arrangements but feel that dog-owners need to be aware of what to expect.

  • "Manannan"

    As usual our trips from Liverpool to Douglas, and back, were most satisfactory. 9 out of 10 to The Steam Packet Co. (Never give 10, must keep striving for perfection)

  • "Perfectly fine"

    Good smooth crossing on the Mannanan (catamaran) mostly because the sea was very calm both ways. No problems with boarding or disembarking. Car was security checked on way back but this was done with humour and staff were very good natured. Only fly in the ointment was the front cabin was used by a load of very noisy children on an outing and as the boat was full there was nowhere to go to escape them.
