Obviously known for "The Beatles" and that is their main draw. There are many areas to visit within Liverpool and the suburbs concerning the Beatles including a GREAT museum called "The Beatles Story". Very well done. However, keep in mind that the entire "small city" is not all about The Beatles. Other than a few areas dedicated specifically to them, there is a lot more to Liverpool NOT dedicated to the Beatles. It's just a typical small, port city. Read Less

Due to our problems in Dublin we had a very late arrival in Liverpool which meant that the majority of the tours had to be cancelled. Liverpool itself offers much to entertain visitors, what with the Beatles Story, Maritime Museum and the 2 very different Cathedrals not to mention a very good shopping centre. The sun shone for a while although it was very windy. Read Less

We really wanted to go to Wales, so contacted the Liverpool Tour Guide Service (office@theliverpooltourguideservice.co.uk). Hilary was our contact and she set us up with a wonderful guide named Judy Brough (http://www.guidenorthwales.com) or contact Judy at: info@guidenorthwales.com Judy went out of her way to try to fit in all our requests, letting us know when we could take time to 'smell the roses' and when we should increase our pace. Judy spent the whole time with us, even strolling with us around the Bodnant Gardens, Conwy Castle ruins and walking the town walls giving us information and answering questions as necessary and stopping for as many photo op requests as possible. We spent a great 9 hours with Judy—she even brought the blankets for our picnic lunch. Awesome, awesome!! Read Less

On Monday morning we woke up in Liverpool. This was a very special day for the Queen Victoria as it was her first visit to the port. The Duchess of Cornwall came aboard to unveil a plaque. We were proud to watch this ceremony before going ashore. We walked round the Albert dock, visited a newly opened museum and enjoyed a return visit to this great city. We noticed that a large number of people were on the dockside, despite some rain and by the evening this number had swelled to many thousands as we prepared to sail away. There was a great party up on deck 10 and a fantastic firework display from a boat in the river. It was a moving event with retro music playing and everyone singing along as we left and sailed out of the Mersey estuary. The sound of the ship's siren must have kept most of Liverpool awake, but no one seemed to really care and the atmosphere was electric. Liverpool did us proud! Read Less

Though not the first port I had to mention it first. This was the best port of them all. Even to Paris, yes, even to Paris. We booked online with busybus.com and Peter - pronounced - Peetur - was the very, very, very, best guide we've had on any of our cruises. The value was unbelievable for the Northern Wales Cruise Special - if you go - you will not regret it. Beautiful country - wonderful guide - what more could you ask for? :) You can go to their website and choose Lounge and see pictures of the "tourist" in action. He takes pictures while we aren't watching. Really neat. But book early so you won't be disappointed. 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 arrived early in Liverpool and I was out on the deck taking pictures. The weather was cool and overcast. I got some nice pictures. 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

We took the ship's tour into Wales this day. We had a great guide and a wonderful day. It was one of the only rainy days we had, which was fine as we traveled by bus. We drove through Ruffin, where my relatives live. Couldn't stop, of course, so will have to go back there as well! We ended up in Llangollen, Wales, where we boarded a train for a lovely train ride. Had a nice group lunch (two bus loads of us)before driving back. Great day. 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

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

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

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

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
