"Excellent trip"

Reviewed 13 August 2014 by Tracy

We left on time, not a lot of people on the boat so was a very enjoyable trip.

"Good trip"

Reviewed 09 August 2014 by Tracy

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.

"Steam Packet Fast Cat Liverpool to Isle of Man"

Reviewed 30 July 2014 by Neil Flear

The fast cat from Liverpool to Isle of Man was on time, very clean and very comfortable. There are lots of seats around the ship. Leaving the Isle of Man, the fast cat schedule had changed due to an engine problem. We were never informed of this by e-mail. Luckily we heard about it whilst on the island so we didn't waste the extra 45 mins delay. The sailing time was also extended so if you were catching a train it would have been a problem.
