Visiting cruise ship will be homecoming for Manx captain

Thu, 11 Jul 2013

A cruise ship which is set to visit the Isle of Man this weekend will have a Manxman at its helm.

The Azmara Quest will make a stop in Manx Waters after travelling from Iceland.

It will be captained by Carl Smith who was born on the Island and who lived in Peel before beginning his career at sea.

He's currently the only Manxman who is the master of a modern cruise vessel.

The cruise is being marketed by the company as 'Captain Carl's Homecoming Cruise' and whilst here he will take part in the World Tin Bath Championships in Castletown.

The Azmara is one of 18 cruise liners set to visit the Island this year.
