  1. What a visit it’s going to be! I’ll always treasure the 2×5 days I was able to spend on the RMS from Cape Town to St Helena and back. Thanks to the staff and all involved that make (made) the RMS such a special experience.

  2. Is there any tickets available for boarding RMS on 11th June?

    Many Thanks

  3. I applied for tickets several weeks ago and I have not heard any news. Please advise

    • Dear Debbie, tickets were allocated on a first come first served basis and all applicants would have been advised by no later than Wednesday 25 May 2016 if they had been successful.
