It’s time to take another peek through the Picture Porthole for more photographs of the RMS St Helena at sea. A few months ago our first Picture Porthole featured seven random images taken onboard the good ship.

We have already posted a more detailed story about a voyage on the RMS, which you can read here, as well as the Top Ten Highlights of RMS St Helena, Part 1 and Part 2. Do check them out when you have a moment.

But once again, this is just about enjoying the pictures, and for those of us who have sailed on the island’s ship, no doubt these might trigger some pleasant memories. Enjoy!
