I visited the two cathedrals and Albert Dock. There are some lovely National Trust places to visit near Liverpool, but not on the ship's tours.

Due to walking difficulties, spent most of our time around the dock areas. Lunch was great and the pubs were great. Had a chance to speak with many of the locals. Heartwarming and welcoming to tourists.

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.

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

Due to Princess Cruises mechanical problems we were late to Liverpool. We paid for a hop on / off bus to take us around Liverpool and ran out of time, so we didn't get to see much or do what we'd planned.

We did not have anything planned in Liverpool as we were meeting two of our Martini Mate buddies, Paul and Gail who live in Leeds (about two hours away) for lunch. We were really looking forward to seeing them and had planned to get off the ship about two hours before they got there and take the Mersey ferry (which operates as a tour boat during after the morning commute) for a 45 minute ride around the harbor. Only problem was…the weather. We were inside watching people getting off the ship and the rain was coming down horizontally, umbrellas were being blown out and people were having to lean into the wind to stay on their feet. And from there it only got worse. We waited a little while and it seemed to get better so we ventured off and as soon as we did, it started again. We did make it down to the ferry but what a miserable ride. Poured rain, the wind blew and it was horrid. Once off the ferry, we made our way to the Albert Dock, Liverpool’s edge-of-the-harbor tourism base. They had a number of museums including at least two Beatles exhibits, a branch of the Tate Modern Art museum, a maritime museum with a nice Titanic exhibit and assorted restaurants and shops. We met our buddies from Leeds there and had a splendid time just catching up over coffee. After that we toured the maritime museum and then had lunch at an interesting Cuban restaurant in the Albert Dock. Then we sent Paul and Gail off to London to see their newest grandchild and we headed back to the ship just to get warm and dry. A quick visit to the Persian Gardens warmed us right up. Others (Tim, Perry, Nancy and to some extent my brother Steve and his wife Jamie) toured a little more than we did and said they liked it. We, on the other hand considered it a total waste of time. Especially with the limited amount of time we were in port. Had it been a little longer or if we had not been meeting Paul and Gail, we might have done a longer excursion out into the Welsh or English countryside. Do not get me wrong—I am a HUGE Beatles fan. But I know their story and really don't want to spend an entire day hearing it again. This was the worst weather of the cruise. If it is raining and windy when you are in Liverpool, be smart and stay on the ship. I honestly believe if our friends had not been coming from Leeds, that is exactly what we would have done. Not much to see and the worst weather ever to see it in. The port is trying to bill themselves as a “world-class port” but they have a VERY long way to go. Maybe on a sunny day we might have liked it better. Read Less

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

As already related, my Deluxe Beatles excursion was cancelled due to our late arrival and the trickle down effect of the mechanical issues and the decisions made by Princess Cruises staff after that incident. I bought tickets for the Magical Mystery Tour and recommend it. I also visited The Beatles Story on my own. My husband cancelled his Wales excursion out of Liverpool due to the fact that it was basically going to turn from a full-day trip into a half day trip anyway. 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
