In a world of her own
The delectably small and exclusive Hebridean Princess, purpose-built for Scotland’s Western Isles and launched by Hebridean Island Cruises as a cruise ship in 1989, sails mainly from her home port of Oban. As the smallest luxury cruise ship afloat, she effortlessly accesses the remotest islands, lochs and bays beyond the reach of larger vessels.
Perfectly complementing the wildly beautiful Scottish scenery through which she cruises, Hebridean Princess offers the unrivalled comfort and refined service of a floating country house with a maximum of 50 guests in the tradition of the halcyon days of cruising. The welcome on board is always warm with the congenial atmosphere of a country house party, where old friends meet up, new acquaintances are quickly made and the unaccompanied need never feel alone.
At the same time, guests are free to enjoy the luxury of their own private space whenever they choose. The epitome of good taste, an understated elegance pervades the whole ship in a carefully chosen décor of co-ordinating furnishings, fabrics and colours.
From the lounges to the Columba Restaurant and the 30 spacious, individually designed cabins to the sparkling brass and well-polished teak deck, the ambience on Hebridean Princess is redolent of a bygone era.
Delightful features abound: peaceful corners that are perfect for reading, the home-from-home feel of the inglenook fireplace in the Tiree Lounge and many more.
Our crew-to-guest ratio of almost one-to-one ensures exceptionally high standards, which embrace every aspect of life on board and ashore. Unobtrusive and friendly service, with that personal touch and constant attention to detail, sets the five-star Hebridean Princess apart from other cruise ships: unique and unmatched, she is simply in a class of her own.
