An easy start to your cruise

Our experienced reservations staff can assist you with all your UK travel arrangements, including individually tailored packages, to make your journey to and from Hebridean Princess as relaxed and as stress-free as possible.

Whether you would prefer the convenience of a chauffeur transfer, or the comfort of a private airport lounge, we will be only too pleased to cater for your requirements.


Our reservations staff can advise and arrange flights from UK airports to Glasgow or Southampton to meet with our private coach. 


We can arrange standard or first class rail travel from/to your local UK railway station, together with seat reservations where available. For cruises commencing in Oban and Greenock rail travel is to Glasgow, for cruises departing from Portland rail travel is to Weymouth and to central London termini for departures from London.

Baggage transfers:

Our partnership with The Baggageman means that you can enjoy your rail or air journey without the need for having to worry or carry your suitcases.  The Baggageman provides a luggage collection and delivery service from your home to Hebridean Princess and return. Please contact The Baggageman directly on 01844 264890 or visit

Private coach transfers:

Guests travelling by rail or air to embark in Greenock, Oban or Portland will be collected at the railway station or airport and transported in our private coach to join Hebridean Princess and return at the end of the cruise.  For cruises embarking or disembarking in London transfers will be provided from/to Central London termini. 

Secure car parking:

If you wish to travel to your port of embarkation by car, we can arrange secure car parking in most cases, with th exception of London. Where parking is off-site, easy transfers will be arranged by taxi between the car park and the ship for embarkation and on disembarkation.

Door-to-door transfers:

As an added touch of luxury, our door-to-door service makes it possible for you to enjoy the comfort of chauffeur driven travel from most places in the UK to your embarkation port, or any UK railway station or airport.


You may prefer to extend your cruise with a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay. We have negotiated favourable rates with a number of hotels, some of which are members of Connoisseurs Scotland or Pride of Britain, and we are pleased to pass these on to you. Our reservations staff can also recommend hotels elsewhere in the UK.
