A 1940s cruise ship will return to Weston’s waters this month – and you could win a free family cruise on board.

The MV Balmoral will stop at Knightstone Harbour at 9.15am on August 24 as part of a series of trips which will take place in the Bristol Channel until September 4.

The MV Balmoral Fund, a charity which completely refurbished the 736-tonne ship, will then return to the channel for one final weekend from September 29 to October 2.

Paul Doubler, a member of the MV Balmoral Fund, said: “We look forward very much to returning to our home waters of the Bristol Channel, for what we hope will be a very busy and successful time for the ship.

“Balmoral has a special place in the heart and is much loved by many different generations of West Country folk.

“She is Britain’s most travelled coastal excursion ship and offers unique cruises all around the UK’s fabulous coastline – none more popular than the fabulous cruises and sea views of the spectacular Bristol Channel.

“Our ship has a 70-seater restaurant and her famous art deco Britannia Lounge – refreshments are available throughout every voyage.

“The ship even sells ice cream and has its own special bottled real ale – Balmoral Bitter.

“Just bring yourselves for a truly great day out for all the family.”

The MV Balmoral Fund has teamed up with the Mercury to offer one lucky reader a family ticket for two adults and two children to a sailing of their choice. A second prize of two adult tickets to any sailing is also up for grabs.

To be in with a chance of winning, answer the simple question below before the competition deadline of 10am on Monday.
