BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY IN DRY-DOCK FOR MV BALMORAL

Balmoral is to remain in dry dock at Sharpness until at least Tuesday May 30th . The ship has now lost all the revenue she would have earned over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The excursion ship M V Balmoral is to remain in dry dock at Bristol –  at least until Tuesday May 30th – meaning that the ship has lost all the revenue she would have made over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Balmoral was to have begun  her season of  sailings from Penarth on Friday last week but has had to cancel all this weekend’s scheduled voyages from Penarth and from other ports.

An underwater  section of her hull is being “investigated”  at Sharpness Drydock. It had been hoped the work would take only two days but White Funnel Excursions and MV Balmoral Trust have now announced that the ship is to spend at least two more days in dry dock .

No firm date has yet been given for her return to service .

    This is a real shame as a lot of hard work and fund raising has gone in for the past 6 months to get it ready for the 2017 season. Let’s hope it gets back in service ASAP as confidence is slipping away and that’s not good.
