In its meeting of Tuesday, 12 May 2015, Executive Council approved the RMS Shipping Schedule from April 2016 to July 2016. A press release detailing the final voyages of the RMS St Helena and the associated booking policy was issued on 19 May 2015.
Further to this press release, SHG would like to advise the public that the passage fares and freight tariffs for these final voyages remain unchanged from the levels set in April 2014, apart from those relating to the UK leg (last set in August 2011), which have been adjusted for inflation as normal.
The RMS St Helena passage fares for the final three voyages in 2016 are attached to this press release.
The final voyages of the RMS include the following four key components:
- A final voyage to Tristan da Cunha in April 2016
- The RMS being anchored in Jamestown for the proposed official opening of the Airport on 21 May 2016
- A final voyage to the UK and – after disembarking her passengers – the RMS making a promotional trip up the River Thames and mooring alongside HMS Belfast near the Tower of London
- The RMS being anchored in Jamestown for five days prior to its final sailing to Cape Town.
