The first cruise of the season from Penarth Pier by MV Balmoral – which was due to take passengers on a cruise of the River Usk, Steepholm, and Flatholm on Friday May 13th has been cancelled.
The Balmoral Trust say that “Unfortunately our Usk & Holms cruises on 13th May are cancelled due to an unforeseen engineering issue.”
The cruise was to have been the first of some 50 sailings scheduled from Penarth Pier this season. The company is informing passengers that Balmoral will be sailing from Penarth Pier on Saturday May 14th on a 3 Rivers 5 Bridges cruise – but that cruise is already fully booked.
The first bookable cruise from Penarth Pier aboard Balmoral will now be on Sunday May 15th when she will be taking passengers on a cruise of the Welsh Heritage Coast & explore Porthcawl [time ashore] – leaving Penarth at 11:15.
The course will take her past Sully island, Barry Island and along the delightful Glamorgan Heritage Coast, the Nash Point Lighthouse and Southerndown before disembarking for time ashore in Porthcawl.
