Isle of Man Steam Packet

    Easy Trip
    • Isle of Man to Belfast with Isle of Man Steam Packet

      Our journey began in Douglas, where we arrived at the port early. Checking-in was simple, & once on board we went up to our booked lounge seats. The climb up all those stairs was a bit taxing! The crossing was without incident as the sea stayed almost flat calm. We had some food aboard, which was OK, without being remarkable. On arrival in Belfast, offloading was swiftly done.

    Warning don't be late!
    • Heysham to Isle of Man with Isle of Man Steam Packet

      Felt like I was the lucky traveller to be using this facility, warning to other passengers don't be late for checking in! Parking is very expensive, you can probably park up the road for free! As a foot passenger doing a Mountain Bike Event, I witnessed a fellow cyclist (young girl) travelling with her mum (no bike) be told she could not walk off the deck with her daughter she would have to walk off the boat with the other foot passengers probably some Health and Safety law this pretty much summed up the whole experience really for me, poor, but no alternatives and not cheap! Viva la France! Use the cross channel most years no problem, always very helpful! Nobody screaming get off your bike and walk!! Why?? My friend missed his check in time by 20 mins as traffic is very bad near this port on a Saturday, the ferry had not sailed they would not let him check in. He had to go back home to Manchester catch the train to Liverpool then the ferry to Isle of Man. Will I sail again, yes probably but won't look forward to it!

    Cruising to the Isle of Mam
    • Dublin to Isle of Man with Isle of Man Steam Packet

      My wife and I instead of flying took the ferry. We were very pleasantly surprised by all aspects of the journey and would recommend it to anybody.

    I will never use this line again
    • Liverpool to Isle of Man with Isle of Man Steam Packet

      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.

    Generally, I enjoyed the journey
    • Liverpool to Isle of Man with Isle of Man Steam Packet

      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.
