"Tuesday day time crossings"
Reviewed 12 August 2014 by Anonymous
It was the first time we had used this crossing and even though we crossed by day we took a cabin at £25 for bags, naps, showering and changing; this proved very worthwhile and we'd do it again, or (now we've seen the comfort of the cabin) would cross by night. My wife enjoyed watching two (of the three)films on the way out but some were repeated on the return journey(one week later)which reduced her options for passing the time. Even for July/August it was not overcrowded so comfortable seats were available. The barista could do with 2 staff at the very beginning as all passengers start with a hot drink. Snacks (eg crisps @ 90p) were expensive: at ordinary shop prices, we would have bought on board; at those prices we will bring our own. The ships ran punctually but disembarkation (from the top deck) was slow at both ends. On the way out we sat in the car for over 15 minutes, but were pleased to be warned on the return journey and told to wait a little before going to the car deck. All in all we were impressed.

The trip was smooth and enjoyable. First time travelling by ferry. From embarking to disembarking everything was run efficiently. Because the cost of travelling this way was so cheap we treated ourselves to a cabin. This is definitely the way to travel!! All crew in service areas were friendly and made the trip a pleasure.

First time been on a ferry for a few years and found the experience very stress free, was working over in Belfast for a week and had to do some admin whilst en route, the Lounge was very peaceful and secure so didn't have to pack my laptop up every time nature called. Staff were very helpful.

I arrived at Birkenhead docks 6 hours prior to departure. I was disappointed that there was not a resturant or small cafe where I could buy something to eat. After driving for 6 hours I did not feel like driving to find a restaurant. However, every member of staff I encountered was excellent and one lovely lady made me a cup of tea...much appreciated. The whole journey was painless and the staff and crew on board were also very good. The food was not bad and cabin comfortable but there was a loud noise, not from the engine but something else which was comfortable for sleeping. Overall I could not fault Directferries although there are a few small improvements that could be made that would make the experience a little bit more slick.

Birkenhead is a town in northern England situated on the Wirral Peninsula in the county of Merseyside in close proximity to Liverpool.
Belfast is the second-largest city on the island of Ireland. It is the largest city in Northern Ireland, of which it is the capital, and in the province of Ulster. he city is situated at the south-western end of Belfast Lough, a long natural inlet ideal for the shipping trade that made the city famous, and near the mouth of the River Lagan. It is flanked by long stretches of hills, the Holywood Hills on the south and the Antrim Hills on the north. The city straddles the County Antrim and County Down boundary. The city recently gained the status of being the 2nd most popular city in the UK for short breaks. The name Belfast originates from the Irish Béal Feirste, or the mouth of the Farset (feirste is the genitive of the word fearsaid, "a spindle"), the river on which the city was built. Interestingly, the river Farset has been superseded by the River Lagan as the most important river; the Farset now languishes under the High Street in obscurity. Bridge Street indicates where there was originally a bridge across the Farset.
