Passengers add to record-breaking 2019 total

Anchored in Douglas bay this morning is the M.S. Azamara Journey.

The 694-passenger vessel, which was built in 2000, is the latest in a stream of cruise ships to flock to Manx shores this season.

In fact, as of yesterday, there have been more cruise ship passengers arriving to the Isle of Man in 2019 than any other year, and it's thought there are another 15 yet to stop here before the season finishes.

Organisers say there is a "wide, varied selection of excursions planned" for visitors choosing a guided tour today, with around half of passengers instead opting to explore the Island independently.
