There are certain cruises which are epic in nature, and are done more for adventure than for comfort, for the joy of the unvarnished experience - a cruise from Cape Town to Tristan da Cunha, the remotest island in the world, on the RMS St Helena falls into this category. The cruise typically leaves Cape Town and is at sea for 5 days before arriving at Tristan da Cunha where a couple of days are spent, then cruises to St Helena Island where a further few days are spent before another 5 days at sea to get to Cape Town. But was the 14th November 2013 RMS St Helena cruise to Tristan da Cunha its last voyage there? There are no more Tristan da Cunha cruises listed in its schedule, and with airport being built at St Helena Island, it's possible that the RMS (as she is affectionately known) will be retired without another trip to Tristan da Cunha. We were lucky enough that Tina Wagner, a passenger on board the RMS, shared the photos she took of Tristan. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
