ISLE OF MAN D-DAY issues 2019

About D-Day 75
To mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Isle of Man Post Office is privileged to issue a new set of stamps, a dedicated collection honouring all the Manx men and women involved in the historic landings. Our set is a special 'stamp on stamp' design and includes the artwork from our 1994 collection.
Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on 6th June 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France's Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history the Normandy beach landings.
This stamp-on-stamp presentation, derived from our 50th Anniversary of D Day 1994 commemorative issue depicts the most prominent military leaders of the Allied Forces who formulated plans which marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate north-west Europe from German occupation.

The Commanders featured on the stamps are:
General Dwight D. Eisenhower, US Army, Supreme Commander Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF).
Air Chief Marshall Sir Arthur Tedder RAF, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander.
Lt-Gen Omar Bradley, US Army, Commander 1st US Army.
General Sir Bernard Montgomery, British Army, Commander 21st Army Group.
Major General Walter Bedell Smith, US Army, Chief of Staff.
Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsey, Royal Navy, Commander Allied Naval Expeditionary Force.
Air Chief Marshall Sir Trafford Leigh-Mallory, Royal Air Force, Commander in Chief, Allied Expeditionary Air Force and also in command of the landing phase for Operation Overlord.

Who can identify the two cruise vessel alongside in Aruba on the stamp?

The Oranjestad port, which is at present the island's most important commercial port, is located at the southwest coast. The port is open day and night, thus enabling at any time the arrival and departure of ships. The location, in the capital's center offers a colorful view of ships coming into the port. The ships dock at walking distance from the commercial activities, and at a mere 10 minutes by car from the beaches. Aruba's international airport is just a little over 2 miles from the wharf. The cruise ship port welcomes a few hundred thousand visitors annually.

With the help of Mr. Peter Crichton I found the cruise vessel on the stamp:
The Aruba cruise vessel is the CARNIVAL BREEZE see URL below. She was also the only of her class who regular visited Oranjestad. Photo taken on 21 February 2013. ... id=1803657

The other cruise vessel is the ADVENTURE OF THE SEAS
Peter was given that she could be the ADVENTURE OF THE SEAS of one of the sisters and by searching on the net I found a photo what did give both vessels on 21 February 2013 alongside in Oranjestad.

She was 21 February 2013 at Oranjestad see URL below. Row 10 ... e_Seas.htm
