    Family visit
    • Although the journey out was a bad one due to no seating and two of our three adults over 60 sat under the stairs from heysham -IOM . The journey back was a lot better due only to a lack of passengers allowing us to not only get a seat but have a good choice of seating . One of our group being over 80 was in premier but for the three of us and a car over £435 paid I would expect a seat both ways .

    Pleasant way to get to the IoM
    • All went as expected with friendly greeting at Heysham, but not so at Douglas. Sailed on time but slight delay on return to Heysham due to other ships, at 11.30pm!! Plenty of space to sit but no point in paying extra to sit in Lounges. Very nice lady in the shop found my wallet which had slipped out of my pocket.
