Steam Packet Sailings To Heysham? in Local News Posted October 24, 2010 I overheard an interesting conversation on satuarday whilst waiting for a bus transfer to heysham after the mananan sailing was cancelled. we were told it was technical difficulties, but staff were overheard saying that there were not enough passengers to justify sending the fastcraft out, and it was cheaper to transfer the passengers to heysham by bus. i wonder how many times the technical problems have been low passenger numbers? how many passengers have been inconveinienced to save money? why cant this company be honest to their customers?
