An Ayrshire travel agent is running a unique trip to tour the inside of a cruise ship. 

Thorne Travel, which has branches in Largs and Kilwinning, has collaborated with Ponant Cruises to tour the company's Le Champlain ship. 

The tour is described as an "exceptional chance for both seasoned cruisers and first-timers to explore this magnificent vessel".

The visit takes place on Wednesday September 6, with guests registering at Thorne Travel's Kilwinning or Largs branches. 

Guests will then be taken by coach to the vessel, where they will be given a tour, with a Q&A session and light refreshments served. 

The tour will include the unique BLUE EYE underwater lounge, which gives views outside the ship. 

Guests will then be treated to an afternoon tea at the Seamill Hydro Hotel, before returning home.

Applications close on Friday, August 25 and those selected for the trip will be contacted on Monday, August 28.
