Today’s scheduled 15.00 Liverpool service has been delayed and is expected to depart at 16.30.
The later sailing time is due to the delayed incoming sailing from Heysham, which is expected at 15.30.
This morning’s Liverpool sailing had to be diverted to Heysham because maintenance work being undertaken by Mersey Docks and Harbour Company on the Liverpool Landing Stage had overrun.
As a result of the delayed 15.00 Douglas-Liverpool sailing, the return service, scheduled to depart Liverpool at 19.00, is anticipated to depart at 20.30.
The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company sincerely apologises to all passengers affected by the delays.
