The trip over was in my view dangerous and we should not have sailed or turned back but realise having a boat of my own that this is sometimes not an easy thing to do. The cat was crowded with not enough seats for everyone with people lying on the floor and under tables because it was so rough and you couldn't stand. I always thought that as a cat it should have waited for the winds to die down especially as it only had 3 engines working. I will never use this line again and will fly for any future trips.

High-standard service, great views from windows and back deck, and, the most important things if travelling with children, you have a plenty of room to move around, bar, cinema and even playground for children.

The only drawback was shifting a departure time of return journey due to sailing at reduced power. However a ferry arrived earlier than planned and we finally did not loose pre-booked coach ticket from Liverpool. I also did not understand extra-charge for Niarbyl seats. It looked like all passengers were seated at the same cabin except 1st class passengers. Generally, I enjoyed travelling by ferry and will recommend it.

Nice facilities
We had a good trip. We were exhausted and managed to find a comfy seat to sleep on. The kids were happy watching a children's film. There were 2 cinemas, one showing a film for adults. We were not able to get a table and would recommend getting in earlier and saving some seats as everyone else had done. The trip back was to Heysham and this ferry from Liverpool was far superior. We couldn't find seats together on the Heysham one.

No notification of delay on outward bound journy until announcent made that boat would be 1 hr late. As the problem with the engines was known passengers should have been warned either earlier or upon booking in at the reception desk.
