The Cruise is just a ferry boat across the river and back to Liverpool so do not expect too much. Its basically a Beatles fan must do

Not sure if this is a tourist boat or a commuter boat. I guess economics means it has to be both which inevitably leads to compromises. I don't recommend alighting on the Wirral side as there is nothing much there. Just experience the nostalgia and...More
