Hebridean Princess

The smallest luxury cruise ship in the world

Hebridean Princess appeals to those who enjoy the gentle pleasures of cruising around Scotland in luxury and style. In her 19 years of operation, become one of the most successful small luxury cruise ships, offering her passengers a unique cruising experience.

Navigating the Hebrides, Scotland’s rugged and remote west coast, and the dramatic coast of Ireland, Hebridean Princess covers approximately 300 miles and sails an average of 24 hours in a typical seven nights’ cruise, venturing to Norway in Summer months.

The smallest luxury cruise ship in the world, with a crew of around 38 looking after 49 guests, Hebridean Princess has a loyal following.

The combination of Hebridean Princess’ relaxed elegance and the majesty of her surroundings have proved immensely popular and the ship now has an ever-growing band of loyal admirers. In a fiercely competitive market, 65 per cent of all guests are repeat bookings, a statistic that speaks volumes.

Most one-week cruises start from Oban and visit islands and remote coastal villages, concentrating on those inaccessible destinations normally visited only by private yachts.

The Footloose series presents the opportunity to immerse yourself on scenic walks in the stunning scenery of Scotland and Norway. The common denominator is spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and remote locations.

Most nights, the ship anchors in sea lochs or bays far from habitation.
