Luxury cruise ship Adonia docks at Barrow

Hundreds of holidaymakers stopped off at Barrow today during a 12-day luxury cruise of the British Isles.

The P&O ship docked at 7.30am on Sunday June 22 and depart at 7.30pm.

The occasion is set to provide a boost for the borough and wider area, as the 710 passengers, each paying up to £1,500, will be encouraged to sample local attractions.

Local taxi company A1 Cars will be operating private Lake District tours, and shuttle buses will run between the quayside and Barrow Town Hall.

In addition, a free heritage bus service will ferry the tourists to Furness Abbey and the Dock Museum.

And in a touch of pomp and ceremony, they will be bidden farewell with a quayside performance from Dalton Town Band as the ship, named Adonia, sails away from berth four.

A cruise last stopped in Barrow in June 2009 when the ship Tahitian Princess paid a visit.

Have your say

Looking at the slides, I'm sure that Barrow was the highlight of the cruise.
