Norfolkline Mersey Viking - Further Ferry Information and Vessel Description

Norfolkline's Mersey Viking in it's old Norsemerchant colours with it's sister ship, Lagan Viking

The new Norfolkline Mersey Viking 27'000gts and can carry up to 700 passengers in her 2 lounges (passenger certificate is 970), and can sleep up to 480 passengers in cabins. She has 4 vehicle decks and room for around 200 lorries. Her maximum speed is 27 knots, but usually sails at 23 knots maximum. She sails on the Belfast–Birkenhead route on charter with her marginally older sister ship the Lagan Viking.

The Belfast–Birkenhead route is invaluable to drivers, as it saves them driving through Scotland on poor single-carriageway roads and behind a great number of freight vehicles. In all, the total journey time on board the ship is 7 hours. The ship has several facilities on board such as restaurants, bars, shops and a cinema.
