En sjusjungande resa har hon gjort, Balmoral.
This morning was a very gray morning in New York and the Balmoral sailed up the Hudson right on time, docking at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal precisely at 8:00 AM. The Balmoral blasted her horn 3 times as she passed the location of the pier the Titanic would have docked at, should she have completed her maiden voyage.
At the Manhattan Cruise Terminal the Balmoral joined the already docked Azamara Journey which overnighted at the passenger ship terminal. She too was chartered by Mile Morgan Travel for a similar cruise to the Titanic sinking site which departed from New York. The Azamara Journey will depart today.
The Balmoral will stay in New York overnight and depart on another charter cruise from Miles Morgan Travel. This cruise is not a Titanic Memorial Cruise and a repositioning cruise to place the ship back in Europe for Fred Olsen's Spring cruises.
On her 9-day return voyage, the Balmoral will stop at Martha's Vineyard and St. Pierre & Miquelon Canada before sailing on to Southampton

Balmoral passerar Frihetsgudinnan…
