MS Corinthian brings 8,392nd visitor of the year

There have been more cruise ship passengers arriving to the Isle of Man in 2019 than any other year.

In a post on social media, Cruise Isle of Man says the 8,392nd passenger stepped out onto Manx shores today, which breaks the previous record set in 2018.

It's also thought there are still 16 ships left to visit this season.

The milestone was reached during the visit of M.S. Corinthian - one of ten trips to the Island from that particular vessel this year.

You can hear Manx Radio's report from one of her previous visits here.
