Tickets are on sale now for Ben-my-Chree's 'Round The Island Cruise'

TICKETS are on sale now for Ben-my-Chree's 'Round The Island Cruise' which is scheduled to sail on Saturday, 24 June 2017.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Onchan Silver Band during the cruise, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has announced. The concert is part of the band's 80th Anniversary celebrations and will see 25 players perform 7 pieces of music specially commissioned for the Anniversary, 1 for each of the kingdoms seen from the Isle of Man.

The vessel will depart Douglas at 7pm for a cruise lasting around 4 hours, giving passengers the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the Manx coast.

The cruise fare is just ₤28 for adults and ₤15 for children aged between 5 and 16. Children aged four and under are free.

Passengers will be able to choose from a selection of three hot dishes, including a vegetarian option, and enjoy an ice cream and a non alcoholic drink. Special dietary requirements, such as gluten free or vegan, can be accommodated, but the Steam Packet Company must be informed at the time of booking.

The bar will not be open, as the vessel is not licensed to sell alcohol while it is in Manx waters, but passengers are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages to drink with their food.

Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said:- "Round The Island Cruises are always extremely popular, and the performance by Onchan Silver Band will certainly add to the experience. We're delighted to be part of the band's 80th Anniversary celebrations. The cruises provide an excellent opportunity to see the beautiful coastline, which will be enhanced by the band's specially commissioned music, and we expect tickets for this sailing to be in demand."

To make a booking, please call in at the Ferry Travel Shop, Sea Terminal, Douglas or call the Reservations Team on:- 01624 661661.
