Thanks Carl for the photos you loaded today of the warriors. We're thinking of going so I would be interested in your opinion of the exhibition in general.

Thanks

Hi there

I actually wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, we were a party of four friends and all of us came away really impressed. Seeing the Warriers up close was great there is plenty of reading about the history plus associated items. We spent about 90 mins in the exhibition.

It is very popular, you should pre book tickets, which are timed.
Carl

Good to see, and although Olsen do an increasing number of cruises out of Liverpool it could do a lot more. Southampton isnt easy or cheap to get to from the north so it can only be a matter of time before other companies follow suit. Lime Street is easy to get to and Pierhead is 5 mins in a taxi

V true my mum went with Fred Olsen this year to The Azores, Madeira and mainland Portugal and enjoyed it very much, plus living in Northwich it was so much easier than the track to Southampton.

I think the cruises available increase year on year, she is travelling with these to Norway next year.

News on new ferry terminal for IOM steam packet.

Designs for £30m Isle of Man ferry terminal revealed
  • 29 October 2018


Image captionThe terminal would be built half a mile (800m) from Liverpool's Pier Head
Artists' impressions of a new £30m ferry terminal connecting Liverpool and the Isle of Man have been revealed.
The Manx government has released the designs as it prepares to lodge a planning application next month.
The facility is scheduled to open in late 2020 with funding subject to Tynwald approval.
Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson said the terminal would be a "critical piece for our regeneration plans for the north shore".
Manx infrastructure minister Ray Harmer said passengers' needs have been "at the forefront of the design process" with "comfortable and modern facilities".
Image captionThe terminal is scheduled to open in late 2020
The designs will be displayed at a public exhibition in Liverpool from Thursday.
Vehicles and freight will be served by a £7.6m link road.
Mr Anderson said: "The city council is investing a huge amount of money in the transport infrastructure to support this new facility and we look forward to its completion.
"The Isle of Man and Liverpool have a historic relationship, and this new ferry terminal will cement our strong links and forge even closer ties into the future."
Image captionInfrastructure minister Ray Harmer said the facilities would be "comfortable and modern"
The terminal will be built half a mile (800m) from the current Pier Head facility at Princes Half-Tide Dock.
The existing terminal is set for a major redevelopment as a cruise liner berth as part of the £5bn Liverpool Waterfront scheme.
