Ben my Chree goes in to dry dock for repairs

Sat, 18 Jun 2011

The Ben my Chree will be out of service for the next two days.

The Steam Packet Company's flagship goes into dry dock for forty eight hours for bow thruster repairs.

The Ben picked up the damage during stormy conditions last month, and has since needed assistance from a tug whilst docking in some weather conditions.

She's sailing to Birkenhead this morning, and will return to service on Monday afternoon.

Some changes to sailings have been made, and a round the Island cruise has been postponed.

Passengers who were booked to travel on the Ben my Chree this weekend who haven't already changed their booking should contact the Steam Packet's Reservations Team
