  • We caught the train from Douglas to Castletown, and it was like going back in time! The cabins are lovely and spacious and the train travels slowly enough through the countryside for you to appreciate...  more »
  • We didn't get a chance to do this last time we went to IOM but done this and enjoyed going to Port Erin and back... very enjoyable and different to always taking modern trains.  more »

  • Long waiting times on the car ferries. The ferry itself temps to be overloaded. Me and my family were never being able to get a seat in the large indoor area. The temperature there is very hot. We usually waited around 60minutes in a lane to get aboard... P&O ferries are way faster, even with the border patrol...
  • It has the monopoly being the only ferry service to the Isle of Man. You are held to ransom by them and the frequent cancellations breakdowns and late journey really spoil the experience. As a regular Steam Packet traveller I am frequently disappointed. (I fly when I can to avoid it but often need to take a vehicle and the lack of alternative is frustrating in the extreme) The redeeming feature is the staff who are helpful friendly and kind. They have to put up with all kinds of grief and are good humoured the majority of the time.
  • Great experience. Used the footloose deal. Ferry ride lovely.
  • Price/comfort /Food /rooms /friendly
  • Old seacat but premium ticket fares
