Hebridean Princess Chief Purser David Indge, tells Ben Ireland from Travel Weekly how life at sea on the 50-berth luxury cruise ship enables him to combine his love of travel and people.
David was born in Bristol and lived at Keynsham. After attending Weston-Super-Mare catering college for two years, with a love for travel, he joined P&O as a steward in 1974.
After two years sailing on the Canberra, he was transferred to Princess cruises, where he met his wife Pat on board the Sun Princess in 1979. Following their marriage in 1982, he moved to P&O ferries across the channel and Bay of Biscay. He seized the opportunity to join Hebridean Islansd Cruises in 2005.
David says he has not looked back since, enjoying all aspects of working for Hebridean and meeting so many friends and interesting guests.
