We where in the Isle of Man for the TT races and my friend had mobility problems and I changed our ferry trip from the Saturday to the Friday one that goes direct to Liverpool instead of Haysham Port. So glad I did as I had a little accident and was on crutches also. The staff on the ferry where great and helped us to our seats.
