The Liverpool Echo reports:
EXTRA Mersey Ferry services will be laid on during Friday for people to get a close-up of the QE2.
All three ferries will be pressed into service during the day for the QE2’s last visit to Liverpool.
River Explorer Cruise services, costing £5.30 for adults and £2.95 for children, will run from noon to 3.30pm and will sail as close as safely possible to the luxury liner.
A blue badge guide will give live commentary.
The Royal Daffodil will host pre-bookable 45-minute viewing cruises from Seacombe only at 11am, noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children.
The 11am service will sail out to the mouth of the river to meet the QE2 as she arrives in the Mersey.
From 4.15pm until 8.05pm, direct services will operate between the Pier Head, Seacombe and Woodside, again with blue badge guide commentary. Prices are £2.30 return for adults and £1.70 for children.
