Nine-night, all-inclusive scenic cruise with guided excursions onboard the Queen's ship of choice

We have a unique and rather spectacular offer for you. Spend nine nights cruising around the dramatic Hebridean Islands, off the rugged West Coast of Scotland onboard the Hebridian Princess. This is a ship with its own royal warrant and has been chartered by the Queen herself for two private family holidays, so you'll be in for luxury and service of royal proportions.

Depending on your departure date, the cruise itinerary will vary, but both schedules aim to give you a full, awe-inspiring experience of the finest spots on these beautiful and remote islands. Excursions vary from picturesque coastal walks, to visiting historic sites that show the rich Celtic and Nordic influences on the area. You might see a wildlife reserve, attend a lecture, visit a castle, or you may simply cruise along admiring the view.

The sophisticated Hebridean Princess is a cut above the rest with traditional luxuries and a large dose of understated charm. It focuses on creating the refined atmosphere of a "country house party" with elegant gourmet dining, impromptu music nights, daily film screenings and luxury facilities at every turn. There's a gym, a library, an inglenook fireplace, a conservatory, a chic lounge with panoramic windows, viewing decks and a unrivalled level of attention to detail from the expert team of staff.

Our all-inclusive, nine-night cruise offer departs from Oban or Invergordon (depending on your travel date - see the itinerary for more detail). While onboard, all your dining and refreshments are included - so that's all scrumptious food, soft drinks, wine and beer. You'll also be covered for all guided excursions gratuities, fees and taxes. We'll include transfers to the ship from Glasgow or Inverness, or if you'd prefer to drive yourself, we'll set up free car parking for you at the cruise's last stop and a transfer to where you'll hop on board.
