Steam Packet customer reviews

  • "Journey from hell"

    Travelled by car to Liverpool for ferry crossing, to find ferry was delayed by 2 hours. All cars were moved constantly to help keep road clear. Eventually got on ferry by which time the sea had started to get rough. The journey was very rough, so rough my wife would not travel back on ferry and had to pay for flight home. Was not given a refund or a upgrade for the executive lounge. Oh we'll that's customer service for you!!

  • "Good trip"

    Our trip went very smoothly, boat was a bit late but that wasn't a problem for us. Onboard facilities were good, we watched a movie, had to tell some other rude passengers to stop talking so we could hear the movie, but that was not the fault of Steampacket.
