After a former life as a car carrier and a Royal Mail Ship, the iconic Hebridean Princess was transformed into one of the world’s smallest luxury cruise ships. Her elegant interiors are designed to facilitate a crew-to-guest ratio of almost 100%, allowing for considerable luxury and attentiveness on every journey. Her relatively small size allows for sailing into smaller ports, sailing the crystal clear waters of narrow lochs, pulling closer to wildlife, and taking travelers to quaint villages on the fringes of remote islands, immersing you deeper into each destination.
The beautiful Tiree Lounge with its inglenook fireplace and the attractive Columba Restaurant form the social heart of the ship and play host to talks by experts on Scottish ecology, history, and culture, as well as Gala dinners hosted by the ship’s captain and informal chats over whisky with all the views of the Hebrides on display beyond the windows. A pristine teak deck glimmers under sunlight, creating a beguiling space to view the scenery, while 28 cabins provide a haven of simple luxuries from where to enjoy the ship’s exceptional services. The petite ship is a delight to explore, and its small guest size makes it easy to form lasting acquaintances with your fellow passengers while ensuring attentiveness from the crew.
