Due to high demand, Mersey Ferries are putting on an extra VIP cruise on Monday 21st July to give passengers unparalleled views of the Tall Ships’ Parade of Sail.

The previously unadvertised extra cruise will mean that all three ferries will be on the River Mersey for the Parade of Sail, the highlight of the global maritime spectacular.

Passengers on the six-hour cruise will be given the chance to listen to live onboard commentary about the rich and varied histories of the visiting ships.

Councillor Mark Dowd, Chair of Merseytravel, which owns and operates the Mersey Ferries, said: “Every one of these visiting ships has a fascinating story to tell, much like our very own Mersey Ferries. It will be a great day.”

The ferry will sail towards the mouth of the River Mersey and position itself in one of the designated vessel viewing areas. There it will remain anchored and provide a viewing platform.

Mersey Ferries flagship vessel, The Royal Daffodil, will host the cruise and a bar will be available on board. Numbers are limited to 250.

The leisurely six-hour cruise departs from Woodside Ferry Terminal, Birkenhead only – it will leave at 11.15am.

Tickets are priced at £35 and include a welcome drink, Blue Badge Guide commentary and jazz band.

Tickets must be booked in advance on 0151 330 1444 or are available online at www.merseyferries.co.uk
