My journey onward to St Helena was marked by the arrival of the Queen Mary 2 who docked in Cape Town just as the RMS St Helena was leaving.
In comparison to the RMS this ship is just huge. As she was entering the docking areas she dwarfed many of the other vessels around.
The fact that the pilot could get the ship turned toward its berth in the space available was incredible and fascinating to watch.
One interesting thing to me was the people on the Queen Mary were looking at the people on the RMS St Helena and vice versa. What each thought of the other goodness only knows. My other thought which went through my mind was how long would it take for all those passengers to get through immigration!
