    Looking forward to it!

    And me, I can’t wait. Forget Oakwood Park, Cineworld etc. A trip on the Balmoral should be compulsory on the bucket list of things to do before one dies.

    Thanks PDN for update on MV Balmoral. I had this from Waverley Excursions this morning:

    ‘…Waverley is scheduled to be in the South Wales area this year. The timetable for 2016 will be similar to 2015, so Waverley should be in that area early to mid September.
    2016 – Celebrating 70 years since Waverley’s launch.

    Why has Weymouth and West Bay been left out from this schedule? Last time Bal lifted 470 passengers from West Bay I did the publicity hence the result.
