The Avalon seen in Durban. Formerly the RMS St Helena (built as Northland Prince), she was used to carry mail, passengers and cargo between te UK, St Helena Island and Cape Town. Following service in the Falklands war she was returned to service on this run until replaced by the current RMS. She was then marketed as a cruise ship under the name Avalon ,but the exorbitant prices ensured she would never be a success and she was laid up in Durban for quite some time until resold for service in the Indian Ocean Islands
