About Hebridean Island Cruises

Hebridean Island Cruises

The luxurious Hebridean Princess was purpose-built for cruising Scotland’s stunning isles and carries just 50 guests in style and comfort. Her size allows her to cruise the most remote islands and smallest lochs and bays, which are inaccessible to larger vessels. Hebridean Princess offers the comfort of a floating country house and guests can always enjoy a warm congenial atmosphere on board.

Fascinating shore excursions are included on an all-inclusive cruise on board Hebridean Princess. They vary in activity level, from relaxing to active, and range from visits to cultural attractions to guided hikes taking in breathtaking scenery. Excursions are accompanied by experienced guides who share their expertise and knowledge to enrich guests’ experiences.

Hebridean’s high level of service starts before you join the cruise. Guests travelling by air or rail and embarking Hebridean Princess in Greenock, Oban or Invergordon will be met at the local railway station or airport and transported by private coach to the ship. There will also be a return private coach transfer.

Cabins

Cabins on board Hebridean Princess are elegantly decorated, individually designed and named after Scottish isles, lochs and castles. Each spacious en-suite cabin features a television, dressing table, safe, trouser press, ironing board and tea/coffee-making facilities. In addition, there is a fridge which is stocked with soft drinks and fresh milk, supplied daily. Guests also provided with bathrobes, slippers and luxury toiletries.

Dining

Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used to prepare the delicious dishes on board Hebridean Princess, which are complimented by specially selected fine wines. The company sources a lot of its produce locally, supporting the local communities. The beautiful Columba Restaurant accommodates guests in a single-sitting and offers a relaxed atmosphere. Single passengers can dine with senior officers in convivial groups.

Breakfast is all about choice. Guests can choose from fresh fruit, porridge or a cooked meal. Lunch is usually served in the elegant Columba Restaurant, but on occasion it may be served al fresco to make the most of the breathtaking scenery and weather. Dinner is always served in the restaurant and guests can enjoy Gala Dinners on each itinerary. These begin with a Champagne reception in the magnificent Tiree Lounge followed by a gourmet dinner and a recital of Robert Burns’ address to the Haggis.

Life On Board

After an energetic excursion ashore, the ship is the perfect place to relax with a variety of beautiful public areas.

The cosy Tiree Lounge complete with bar is the hub of the ship with its comfortable armchairs and sofas. There is also a magnificent brick inglenook fireplace which adds to the welcoming atmosphere. Other public areas include the well-stocked Library with its leather upholstery and dark woods where guests can choose from a fantastic selection of both reference and general interest books. The Look-Out Lounge is the perfect place to watch the ever-changing scenery drift by, while the Conservatory offers an alternative spot to relax after a busy day.
