The Riverdance was a RORO ferry formerly in service with Seatruck Ferries on the Irish Sea. Riverdance was hit by a wave on the 31 January 2008 which caused her cargo to shift and she was eventually beached at Blackpool,<!-- DO NOT CHANGE TO CLEVELEYS, SEE TALK PAGE --> very close to the border with Cleveleys. Attempts to refloat her failed, and she was scrapped on site during 2008.

Her normal route was Heysham - Warrenpoint. She has a sister ship, the Moondance, which is currently in service with Seatruck. She was a cargo vessel, but she sometimes carried passengers, under UK maritime law she was able to carry up to 12 passengers.
