    • On the outward journey we were unaware of the fact that seating had been reserved for us in the Niarbyl Lounge as our reservation documents for the journey were in the car and therefore not accessible to us. Needless to say we were quite happy sitting in the dining area. Due to driving conditions (road works, weather, etc.) we were almost the last car to get on to the ferry. The return journey was much better. However, organization at he departure point could have been better handled. At the gates no one appeared to be guiding vehicles to the ferry departure and it seemed to be every man for himself and it's a wonder no accident happened with people dodging from one lane to another, pushing their way forward to gain access to the boarding lanes. Once on board the journey from Douglas to Heysham was uneventful.
