Five days at sea with nothing but endless ocean around us could in some ways be a photographic nightmare. But, travelling on the RMS St Helena there’s plenty of reasons to keep the camera near. The ship, well, she’s a poser!

We have posted already about a recent 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 right now, here’s something a little different. Seven images of the RMS St Helena; a peek through the Picture Porthole.

7 The toys in the children’s playroom has changed a lot since the early days of the ship, but the room remains as popular as ever. This was a quiet moment, very early, before the kids were out of bed.

That’s it. Seven views on the RMS St Helena, peeping through the Picture Porthole.
