The RMS St Helena will make her final scheduled call to the UK in June 2016.

She will arrive at Tilbury Docks on Sunday 5 June, where she will disembark her passengers. On the afternoon of Tuesday 7 June, she will sail up the River Thames and moor next to HMS Belfast, at The Queen’s Walk in central London.

Various receptions will take place onboard to promote St Helena as a tourist destination, highlight the opportunities to invest on the Island and celebrate the 26 years of dedicated service the RMS St Helena has provided. The RMS will sail back to Tilbury on the afternoon of Friday 10 June 2016.

On Saturday 11 June 2016, in Tilbury, the RMS will be opened to the public at the Cruise Terminal. It is anticipated that up to 500 visitors will be accommodated between 9am and 5pm.  Prospective visitors will need to apply for a ticket and details on how to apply will be advertised shortly.

The RMS will move to the cargo port to commence cargo operations on the Saturday evening, returning to the Cruise Terminal on Monday 13 June to prepare for a farewell reception and departure for St Helena on Tuesday 14 June.

Further information will be provided in due course.
