We were very disappointed...
Lesley_B
, Jan 2022
We were very disappointed that it was not the muli coloured boat. The commentary did not match where we were- had gone passed points etc. Do not class the short ride as travelling up/ down river.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
We are sorry you felt disappointed, we have 2 Ferries, both of which require regular maintenance given their age. Currently our Dazzle Ferry is in dock undergoing this work. The commentary occasionally gets slightly out of sync as we have tides and other vessels to work around but we are currently investing in GPS technology to rectify this issue.

Lovely trip and interesting commentary. Very enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone Booking service odd, no mention of departure times, we didn’t know what to do. And why issue an e-ticket that then has to be redeemed for a paper one that nobody looked at.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for the review Lucy, we are pleased you enjoyed your trip and the commentary. The ticket you bought is valid for any sailing on the date of the ticket and all timetable information is on the Mersey Ferries website. Thank you for the comment about ticketing, it is something we are looking at currently and we hope to have a new system in place next year.
