Professional when embarking at Liverpool, a long wait to disembark at end of cruise, it being done on a deck basis,meaning we were sitting in our cabins ready to disembark for nearly two hours, and we only had a taxi ride to be home.

We used Busy Bus and toured Wales. It was a nice day and we saw many things we would not have seen with a large tour.

There is a hop on hop off bus service in Liverpool with a live commentary (not a recording with earphones) and our guide was very funny. However, there is not a lot to do or see in Liverpool unless you are a Beatles fan and even then it is limited. Retail shopping is the main attraction. It rained for most of the day. Read Less

Gone is the old industrialized Liverpool (all the jobs are in the Orient - lol). the new Liverpool is modern yet has not forgotten their claim to fame - the Beatles. We walked to the Cathedral, the largest in the UK. The size was overpowering. Then we saw the "bomb" church whose roof was destroyed in the second world war. It was not repaired and today stood as a symbol of peace with beautiful gardens. Read Less

In Liverpool we stayed mostly around the dock area. There is a beautiful shopping mall within walking distance of the dock. Also, there is the Albert pier, with shops and restaurants. In that area there are two museums; the Beatles Museum and the Maritime Museum. We did both Museums. Both were fascinating. The Maritime museum is actually several museums in one. The International Slavery Museum was very informative. This facility will soon be moving to its own building. There was a section on the Titanic. Also, because Liverpool was the place where most immigrants boarded their ships for the United States, there are many exhibits detailing this. There was a section on the Titanic and a section on Maritime crime and smuggling. After a brief lunch at one of the restaurants at the Albert Dock, we did the Beatles Museum. If you are a diehard Beatles fan, this is for you. There was in interesting souvenir shop in the museum and a Starbucks (with free internet). Read Less

Liverpool has so many wonderful museums within easy walking distance of where the ship docks. There are two wonderful Beattles museums. We saw both, enjoying the interactive experience and the addition of the Elvis wing which we also explored. We did the Fab 4 ride. Then we went over to the Maritime museum and learned of the history of Slavery, but didn't have time to visit the Liverpool museum or the Tate Art museum also right there. We could have used more time in Liverpool. Read Less

We aren't big Beatle fans and so we chose to explore this port on our own. We checked out the museum called "The Western Approaches" - the secret headquarters for plotting submarine positions and receiving messages from central commands. It was certainly worth seeing, although not as "slick" as some museum displays but somehow more authentic as a result. Sopping is great in Liverpool - loved the city. Read Less

May 30, 2012 The ship docks right in the middle of downtown and there's plenty to do. That was just awesome. We strolled down the quay to the Maritime Museum (Battle of the Atlantic not to be missed, cruise liner era nice as well), the Tate Gallery (and fantastic cafe), enjoyed the free museum & gallery plus the best fish & chips the whole trip, Wapping Ales (excellent, never had better) and amazing soup & salad. Walked to the stunning Liverpool cathedral, about 15 minutes walk & a bit of steep uphill, also through council estate housing, but no worries, and not really that dodgy at all. Look for a docent in the cathedral, they are happy to share details and explain the church, discuss service and answer questions. Reasonable-looking cafe there too. Finished up at the new City of Liverpool museum to closing, and sorry we didn't get there quicker, very nice displays in a stylish new building, explains the role of Liverpool in history. Hurry to the top floor for a display of Liverpool as a maker of pop culture and make your way down. Free. We donated a couple of pounds to each museum, keep up the good work y'all. Read Less

We really loved Liverpool! The ship docks right in the heart of the city and is served by lots of hop on/off tours which are very reasonably priced. Queen Elizabeth II was visiting the docks that day so security was evident around the port and the buses were a little diverted but still offered a great tour of Liverpool for only 5 pounds. We got dropped off the second time around near The Cavern Club and I was thrilled to visit the street where the Beatles got their start. We walked a lot, did some shopping and toured the Liverpool Museum on our way back to the ship. Museums are free so you can make a day of it and not spend much at all (except at Marks & Spencers and Debenham's and...) Read Less

Cruise ships now berth right in front of the glorious 3 graces- the Liver building, the Cunard building and the White Star. Right by the Cruise terminal is the lovely new museum of Liverpool, with its interesting exhibits of the history of Liverpool as a city and world port. A little further away is the wonderful Albert Dock and its magnificent Maritime museum, currently housing an extended Titanic exhibit, with never seen artifacts. Within walking distance are the 2 Cathedrals, the busy city Centre, The Walker art gallery and of course, the Beatles exhibits. Read Less

The organised trips out were rather expensive, especially Bergan. The railway experience at Flam was well worth it.

LIVERPOOL Can't really say mucn about Merseyside as we had no desire to be Beatled to death. Having personally met the boys in 1964 we opted to do other things and so we decided to take the Mersey Line (train) out to the medieval town of Chester...a 35 minute train ride (GBP4.50 for a Daysaver return ticket). St James Street station is only a 10 minute walk from the pier. Great idea as the local powers to be have a free shuttle into the heart of the city from the train station. Great walking (read cobble stones) and should you wish you can walk the walls of the old city. We visited on Race Day and all the men were gussied up in their best suits and all the women in their tight mini dresses and stileeto heels with the Princess Bea fascinators on their heads. Well, the conclusion is that many have had these beautiful dresses in their closets for years to be worn only on race day. Silly mistake as he dresses have either shrunk considerably or...OK the dresses have shrunk!!! Had a great lunch in a little hole in the wall restaurant with the locals before heading back to Liverpool. Back on the Mersey it startted to rain as we got to the ship. People have said (I know second hand info)that the Albert Docks area is really worth a visit Read Less

Dublin, Ireland was a stop on this trip, but I stayed on the ship that day, so don't have a report. I believe this is where the Guinness Brewery is. Barbie and Eddie really enjoyed the tour there. It was neat being in Liverpool because of the Beatles connection. I suppose people who are really into that would rate this port higher. But all I did was take the HOHO bus around town (twice). It cost about 7 pounds. Barbie and Eddie walked to the Cavern, which is where the Beatles played in the early days. They really enjoyed that. They also enjoyed a pint (or two) of Guinness. Read Less

We did the BUSY Bus North Wales excursion with C/C members. Conway castle was very nice and the scenery getting there was beautiful. We went to Snowdonia Park and it was breathtaking. Getting out to walk through the hills and valleys was such a great experience. Chester was a nice medieval town but was very busy. Since the Captain was cancelling the next port we were able to spend some time in Liverpool. We went to the dockyard and enjoyed the big wheel and splendid views. We enjoyed Tapas at a pub and then walked around town. There was a lot of Beatles memorabilia, old Beatles Haunts. Read Less

We did a private tour with Busybus and had a great day long tour of the North Wales Coast. We went to a castle, saw the coastline went to a walled city, had lunch in a small town and had a great tour guide. We enjoyed it and it was half the price of the Princess tour. Read Less
