From the moment Manannan started service on the Douglas to Liverpool route on 22 May 2009, Manannan has impressed passengers with her bright, spacious accommodation offering a variety of seating areas, including two cinema lounges, a large bar area at the stern and the Coast-to-Coast cafe that offers a wide selection of food options.

The enlarged skylounge on the upper deck provides the accommodation for the Niarbyl Reserved Lounge, the Manannan Premium Lounge and the Manannan Executive Club.
