Sailings from Llandudno by Steamers and Cruise Vessels have ceased,
it is hoped only temporarily, owing to the need for repairs to the landing stage,
and for which there are, it is understood, no funds available.
The last sailings to Douglas in the Isle of Man were in May 2005,
since when the "Lady of Mann" has been sold by the Isle of Man
Steam Packet Company for service in the Mediterranean.
The MV Balmoral last visited Llandudno in June 2006.
