Royal Mail Ship St Helena: Aboard the RMS
The accommodation on the RMS is unbelievable.
Here is an extract from an advertisement for the RMS:
“There are all the traditional ocean-going pastimes of beef tea, the sun deck and swimming pool, deck games, films, discos, bingo, race nights, quizzes and many other ideas from the fertile minds of the Pursers and their staff. Sometimes there is even cricket!
“There is plenty of time to do just what you wish. Lounge on the sun deck by the swimming pool with a cool drink and a book (the ship has a well-stocked library of books, videos and audio tapes). For the interested, RMS St conducts visits to the Bridge and these are organized by the bureau.
“For the more energetic, the deck games; for the really dedicated or over indulgent, there is an exercise room.
Perhaps, most significant of all, the chance and time to meet new people, converse and make good friends.
“The galley (dining room) is one of the Ship's greatest assets and would grace many of the world's best restaurants. The chef and his galley staff pride themselves on the quality of the meals they serve. One of the great pleasures of the ship's day is the six-course dinner served in the attractively appointed dining saloon, with every senior officer hosting a table.
“Both breakfast and lunch may be taken in the dining saloon or, for the more abstemious, continental breakfast and a buffet lunch are served in the sun lounge.
“Any type of special diet can be provided for with pleasure: you simply need to make your requirements known in ample time before the ship sails to ensure that arrangements may be made to have the ingredients available.
“Beef tea is served every day in the sun lounge while the bars in the main and sun lounges are open at lunchtime and in the evening.
“Afternoon tea, with cakes and sandwiches, is served in the main lounge in the afternoon.”
Every word above is TRUE!!!
Unique Quality: The quality of service and of food served is outstanding.

Timmy and Sharon Scipio (friends): Live as the locals do
For the first two weeks of our visit to the island we stayed with two dear friends, Timmy and Sharon Scipio in Half Tree Hollow, just outside Jamestown.
Sharon went out of her way to introduce us to all the special delicacies of the island during this time: pillau (there are so many spellings for this one-pot curry dish), island fishcakes (some with bite and others without bite) and a variety of stews and puddings. Timmy is a school teacher. Being a proficient guitarist and vocalist, he entertained us in the evenings with indigenousness "island" songs. As we went on our daily walks into Jamestown and the country side, our hosts provided the best guidance and direction in the mornings before we departed.
Unique Quality: Warm, friendly hospitality and honest in-depth conversations about the island and its people.
Best place to pick up on local gossip about whose who.

The Consulate, Jamestown: Olde World Charm at its best!
We attended a friend's wedding reception in The Consulate and we took the opportunity to peep into the guest rooms and chat to the staff. If ever I need to make use of hotel accommodation when visiting St Helena, this will be the place to go.
The rooms were spotlessly clean, with the friendliest staff that you have ever come accross and the food - well - I do not have enough adjectives to describe it.
Stay at this hotel and allow time to move backwards a hundred years or so and enjoy life as it used to be in the "good old days".
Unique Quality: Friendly Friendly Friendly staff
This is the place where you will get yourself spoilt rotten
