Mersey Ferry Changes - Snowdrop at the Cruise Terminal

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2008

SNOWDROP is seen at the the Liverpool Cruise Terminal on Saturday April 12, 2008. Mersey Ferries switched their Liverpool departure point again on April 07, 2008 to the Liverpool Cruise Terminal. This is to enable the Ravestein SKYLINE BARGE 15 to be relocated opposite the front of the new ferry terminal buildings which are currently under construction. Unlike when  SKYLINE BARGE 15 was located on the site of the cruise terminal no arrangements have been made for Mersey Ferries to issue tickets inside the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company's terminal. Instead passengers have to buy their tickets at the temporary ferries booking office located outside the Cunard Building and then, if time is short, sprint several hundred yards round the Pier Head construction works to the foot bridge which gives access to Prince's Landing Stage and the Cruise Terminal Stage. Ferry owners Mersey Travel suggest passengers allow 10 minute to walk round to the cruise terminal. This arrangement is expected to last for around four weeks.
