Waverley made her triumphant return to service in August 2020 following her boiler refit. However Waverley is now critically short of funds to survive this winter. Without further support she can’t return to service in 2021. We are therefore asking for your help by donating to Waverley’s COVID-19 Relief Appeal.

Come Along and Meet Us at the Branch Hospitality Event!!

This post has been migrated from the Branch blog that was in use between 2008 and 2013. Consequently, there may be minor visual irregularities in how this post is displayed.

The Scottish Branch will be holding their annual Hospitality Event on board ps Waverley as she sails to Lochranza on the Isle of Arran.

These events are always popular and have recently been revised to include a Welcome audio visual presentation by our Branch Chairman in the ship’s Lower Bar after which members can relax and chat over a cup of complimentary tea of coffee before visiting the ship’s Engine Room and Bridge areas.

The flyer above (click on image to enlarge) gives more details but suffice to say that this is an ideal introduction to the Branch – so join on or before Sunday and come along!!

Whilst there is no charge for the actual Branch event you must purchase a cruise ticket from either the Waverley Excursions Website, by phoning 0845 130 4647 or from the Ship’s Purser on the day.

Proceedings will begin just after the ship has sailed through the Narrows (Kyles of Bute) and will come to a close to allow members to view the approach to Lochranza Pier so if you want to come along make sure you join the ship at or before Rothesay -the timetable can be found here.

Fancy it ? We’ll see you on Sunday then!!!
