Ship's Isle of Man sailings cancelled

Tue, 11 Jul 2017

A vintage ship which has visited the Isle of Man for the last 30 years won't be able to come to Manx waters again this year.

The Balmoral's sailings from North Wales and Whitehaven to the Island have been cancelled after the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency told the ship's operator crossings with passengers between the UK and Isle of Man must not take place.

White Funnel says it's bitterly disappointed and frustrated by the decision. No reason for the decision has been given.

The Balmoral has already been to the Island this year, visiting on Tynwald Day last week, and had been due to return later this month.
