A next-generation cruise ship was the latest vessel to moor at Fairlie Quay for its second visit this year.

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

The vessel was built in 2019 and is state-of-the-art, with a lecture theatre, an underwater lounge, panoramic restaurant, spa and gym, and an outdoor swimming pool.

The vessel left Fairlie on Thursday night and made its way to Belfast.
