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!!

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.

The town of Birkenhead is located on the Wirral Peninsular, in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral in Merseyside, in the north west of England. The town lies on the western shores of the River Mersey, opposite the city of Liverpool. The town's history has strong links with shipbuilding and as being a major sea port. In the city visitors will find one of the first, if not the first, publicly funded parks in Britain which was designed in 1843 by Sir Joseph Paxton. Interesting landmarks in the town include Bidston Windmill which is located on a ridge behind the town, Flaybrick Watertower, Flaybrick Memorial Gardens and Birkenhead Priory & St. Mary's Tower, St. James' Church and St. Werburgh's Roman Catholic Church.
Birkenhead's network of docks is actually part of the Port of Liverpool and are operated by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company. The Twelve Quays Ferry Terminal is where passenger and freight services to Dublin in Ireland, and Belfast in Northern Ireland dock. The Mersey Ferry at Woodside runs a passenger service across the River Mersey to Liverpool. During winter months, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company operates a service from Birkenhead to Douglas, the Isle of Man.
Set on the east coast of the island, Douglas is the Isle of Man's largest town and offers a wide range of things to see and do. The town stands on the edge of a two mile sweeping bay and sandy beach, with busy promenades a hive of activity. Visitors to the town can take a trip along the promenade on horse trams where stunning views out to sea can be found. For visitors interested in exploring the Island's heritage, Douglas is a great place to start. The Story of Mann trail, which guides you around some of the most iconic sites, begins at the Manx Museum. A trip to the Great Union Camera Obscura on Douglas Head is also worth a visit. For the petrol heads, visit the TT Grandstand where you will have a bird's eye view of the start and finish line as the bikes attempt the gruelling 37 ¾ mile Mountain Course.
The Steam Packet Company operates ferry services to the Isle of Man from Heysham, Liverpool, Dublin and Belfast. Passengers can choose between the conventional ferry, the Ben-my-Chree, which operates all year from Birkenhead, Heysham, Dublin and Belfast or the fast ferry, Manannan, which runs between March and November from Liverpool, Dublin and Belfast. On board both ships travellers will find shops, cafes and bars as well as premium and executive lounges if you are looking to travel in style. Pets are also allowed on some ferry services.
