Lady Helen Mary Stewart-Wilson is on cruise again; this time not on the beloved Black Watch, but on the largest ship of Fred Olsen Cruise Lines: the Balmoral.

Itinerary:

Southampton – Atlantic Ocean – South America – Mexico – Panama Channel – United States – Panama Channel – Atlantic Ocean – Southampton.

The Balmoral departed on 19 January and will arrive 22 March.

She encountered some well known faces / friends:

As the Wi-fi on the vessels is expensive, slow and of an inferior quality, Mary has to work with her mobile phone when she has a stop or overnight. So pictures are sparse this time, and stops / overnights depending. The first stop was -after four days sailing- in Madeira. Here Mary at lunch in Funchal (Madeira), on 23 January:
