Balmoral returned after a five night cruise on the 25th April 2018 and was heading out early for her repositioning to Newcastle for the summer season.  She was originally listed to sail at 9am, which was brought forward half an hour but Whitonia didn't finish until 8.35am and then she waited for Smit Elbe to attach to her stern.   Two Williams Shipping vessels appeared with Willjay following Willpower initially, sheltering from a Red Jet wash before eventually overtaking.  They were just too cute.  At bang on her original time, the ropes began to go.  Her new hull painting was almost complete.
