Growing cruise market prompts terminal questions

A busy summer in Douglas Bay has prompted fresh calls for a new cruise terminal.

The cruise visitor market grew by a third in the Island last year, with around 8,000 tourists coming ashore from 24 separate ships.

It's thought those numbers could grow by another quarter next year.

Large cruise liner terminals are planned for both Liverpool and Dublin over the next decade.

Government has said building one off the Manx capital would cost in the region of £80 million.

MHK responsible for tourism Rob Callister says alternative methods of attracting tourists must be explored.
