An afternoon on MV Balmoral - Monday 11th July.

Keeping the tradition alive MV Balmoral has spent the last week on the Bristol Channel. Here we take an afternoon cruise to Minehead on Monday 11th July from Penarth Pier.

The ship arrives from Clevedon, only her second day in service this year.

The Forward lounge/bar has been refitted to a high standard over the winter months . .

Great cruising weather!

About to depart for a cruise of Porlock Bay.

At minehead station we saw Braunton - a West Country Class Pacific.

Bal returning from her cruise. Together with Waverley the ships provide a now unique opportunity for many to see the UK coastline.

A rather misleading bit of marketing at Penarth Pier!

Outbound for Clevedon.
