Steam Packet apologises for sailing changes

Tue, 24 Dec 2013


The Steam Packet Company has apologised to passengers whose travel plans have been disrupted due to the bad weather.

It has confirmed that the Ben-my-Chree will operate an additional sailing, leaving Douglas at 9pm and returning from Heysham at 3am on Christmas Day (Wednesday).

Ferry services for this morning and the 2:15pm sailing from Dougas to Haysham were cancelled. 

It follows days of disruption with a number of services to Heysham cancelled yesterday and over the weekend.

Chief executive Mark Woodward says it’s unusual for the weather to be so bad for such a prolonged period of time.

He says a number of points are taken into consideration when cancelling a service:
