  • "enjoyable trip"

    Very happy with the trip there and back, very friendly crew ferrying us to the lift as my wife walks with a stick she has difficulty walking but with the lift to the upper deck she was able to get about easily.

    I really enjoyed the sea crossings both there abd back. Plenty of room to move about and choice of seats. It didnt feel we were on a ship it felt we were inside a building just because of the way the ship was constructed! Brilliat would use again.

  • "Ferry across the Irish Sea - half way"

    Both ways very good RORO very efficient. Small point - foot/coach passengers allowed on first so had to search for seats. Compared to Cross Channel, very expensive - would IOM get more tourists if crossing costs were lower?
