On Thursday 15 and Saturday 17 September 2011 Mersey Ferry sailings between Liverpool and Wirral will be disrupted due to the current temporary berthing facilities at the cruise liner terminal being unavailable because of visiting cruise liners

Queen Mary 2 and Mein Schiff.

Commuter services and River Explorer cruises will still be operated by Mersey Ferries - Commuters will be able to board at Seacombe and travel to Woodside, from where passengers wishing to cross the river can use Merseyrail services from Hamilton Square to James Street and vice versa. Hourly River Explorer cruises will operate from Wirral and tickets will be accepted on trains between Hamilton Square and James Street Stations on these dates.

A new state of the art Mersey Ferries landing stage is currently under construction, scheduled to open in late autumn 2011 and Mersey Ferries are currently operating from the Liverpool Cruise Liner facility at Princes Parade, a short walk from the Pier Head Ferry Terminal.

The Pier Head Ferry Terminal building, including the Beatles Story, H Coffee and Matou will all remain open for business.
