Balmoral in Avonmouth

After completing her final sailing on September 19th on charter Balmoral made her way to Avonmouth docks. The ship is currently berthed in Avonmouth rather than Bristol due to the much greater ease of pressing her into service if the need arises over the next 3 weeks. If she were to be berthed at Bristol there would be a requirement to maintain crew on her due to the life saving appliances and equipment which is still on-board. Avonmouth provides a safe and secure berth for the ship.
