Business sense needed for cruise port

An industry expert is urging government to be wary of mass investment in cruise tourism.

It's amid debate over growing sea visitor numbers, including proposals for a new berth off Douglas harbour capable of receiving thousands of passenengers.

Canadian academic Dr Ross Klein has spent more than 300 days aboard cruise liners as part of his research.

Around 90 residents listened to him weigh up the pros and cons of the sector at a Positive Action Group meeting in Douglas on Monday night.

Dr KleIn says any decision should be treated from a purely business perspective.
