A NEXT-generation cruise ship was the latest vessel to moor at Fairlie Quay.

Le Dumont-d'Urville is a French-registered cruise ship run by Ponant, can carry 184 passengers and was built in 2019.

The vessel has a lecture theatre, an underwater lounge, panoramic restaurant, spa and gym, and an outdoor swimming pool.

It arrived in Fairlie at around 7.30am on Friday from Holyhead in Wales and left later the same day.
