A Voyage of Luxury and Discovery on the Hebridean Princess
Discover the wild Scottish Isles in comfort and luxury on the inimitable and exclusive cruise ship, the Hebridean Princess. Bring home with you an unforgettable experience that is enjoyable, stress-free and relaxing.
Small and luxurious, the Hebridean Princess is the smallest luxury cruise ship afloat. But it is this very nature and size that allows her to effortlessly access the remotest islands, bays and lochs – places that bigger vessels are not privy to. This goes to show that bigger is not necessarily better.
The Hebridean Princess has been described as ‘like home, but better’. The Hebridean Princess carries just 50 guests and 38 dedicated staff, making this cruise intimate, select and exclusive. Guests can be certain of high standards of service, and a warm and friendly experience. The staff, with their keen attention to detail and ability to make guests feel at home, makes this cruise unlike any other. Guests can be assured of privacy and unobtrusive and discreet service. It is furnished to give guests ultimate comfort, and a sense of homeliness. A refined, floating country house, The Hebridean Princess has 30 spacious, individually designed cabins and little nooks perfect for a spot of quiet, reading or relaxation. The ship also has lounges, and a quaint fireplace, all dressed in brass and teak wood, bringing guests back to the bygone era.
Fine dining is part of any cruise experience, and the Hebridean Princess serves her guest top-notch and delectable morsels of food that are carefully prepared by expert chefs using locally-sourced ingredients. Guests dine at the Columba Restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious meals with scenic views of remarkable and breath-taking landscapes. The gala dinners are spectacular occasions – enjoy a cocktail reception, and dine on the finest gourmet cuisine. When the weather is kind, guests may be able to lounge on the deck and feast on a light barbecue. For some of the walking tours, excellent picnic baskets are provided to be enjoyed in the outdoors.
Besides the full luxury cruise comforts, the Hebridean Princess also brings guests to the gem that is the Scottish Isles, with hundreds of islands and islets that are sublimely secluded. Uncover the hidden beauty of this pristine and lush world that has escaped the throes of modernisation. Sail through tranquil waterways and spectacular lochs and anchorages, with craggy mountains as a magnificent backdrop. See for yourself the raw beauty of the Outer Hebrides, the quaint and charming Cumbraes in the Firth of Clyde Islands, the splendour of the Shetland Islands and the deeply historical Northern Isles.
Unlike most cruise ships, the Hebridean Princess cruise includes all shore visits. Discover the culture and history, and do some serious walking, or if you’d rather, some casual strolling, and savour the serenity that nature offers. Visit romantic and sprawling castles, or seek peace by the bay. There is a selection of ‘Footloose’ excursions – guided walks that will enrich an already fulfilling cruise experience. These specially selected guides have an immense amount of experience and expertise.
The Hebridean Princess is an all-inclusive cruise; so leave all your worries at the port as you board the ship for an encounter of a lifetime.
