Hebridean Island Cruises Limited, having just completed a successful management buyout, is once again an independently owned British cruise company and looking forward to a successful season ahead with the company’s flagship vessel, Hebridean Princess, returning to service in March after her annual refit.
Having successfully completed her dry dock during December, Hebridean Princess is now enjoying work being carried out on the upgrading of around one third of her cabins.
The first cruise of the 2017 season commences on 1st March when guests embark on the Clyde Island Explorer itinerary which includes some of the finest houses on the Clyde as well as Britain’s smallest cathedral and a mountainside botanic garden.
During 2017 Hebridean Princess will make a welcome return to Norway to explore the awe-inspiring fjords and islands between Stavanger and Bergen in a series of three stunning itineraries. Hebridean has introduced a variety of new cruises in familiar cruising grounds off the west coast of Scotland, together with visits to the Gaelic neighbours of Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man and its 2017 calendar includes four fresh ‘Footloose’ walking itineraries. Further themed cruises have been specially designed for lovers of food and drink, history and heritage, golf, gardens, nature and wildlife.
Hebridean’s European River cruise programme includes new and exciting destinations all discovered from the comfort of Royal Crown and enriched by renowned guest speakers to bring each itinerary and the company will reveal the musical highlights of the Rhine, the flavours of the Danube and the architectural delights of the Main and Rhine.
