Over the past twelve months, Hebridean Island Cruises has had the pleasure of showcasing both Hebridean Princess and its European river cruise programme on board Royal Crown to a number of selected travel agency partners.
Such invitations, to experience a Hebridean cruise first hand, allow our partners to advise guests on all aspects of cruising with us.
Amy Wright from Cruise Select in Bedford (pictured) enjoyed our whisky themed cruise last year on board Hebridean Princess. From reading her review we’re sure you’ll agree that she enjoyed her Hebridean experience.

More recently, Ann Bolland from Blue Water Holidays (pictured far right), based in our own home town of Skipton, enjoyed several nights on a Hebridean river cruise on board the 1930’s style river cruiser Royal Crown. Again, you'll see from her Blog that she thoroughly enjoyed her Hebridean experience.

Hebridean Princess Celebrates 30 Seasons with cruises to the South Coast of England, Northern France and, for the first time, Belgium.
Hebridean Princess, the unique and luxurious small cruise ship, renowned for her voyages to the off the beaten track destinations in and around the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, will celebrate her 30th cruising season in 2018.
Hebridean Island Cruises says that its 30th anniversary season will not go unmarked and therefore the company will be replicating itineraries from its inaugural year of 1989, along with cruises from its tenth season of 1998 and the twentieth season of 2008.
Ken Charleson, Managing Director commented:
"Whilst 2018 will be an exciting year for us, our Pearl Anniversary celebrations will not just be confined to cruises from seasons gone by. During the summer of 2018 our out-of-area cruises will witness Hebridean Princess venturing to the south coast of England, calling at Dublin and the Isles of Scilly en route. We are also voyaging to the Channel Islands, Northern France including Brittany and Normandy, and a maiden time a visit to Belgium. Furthermore, two cruises of the River Thames to the iconic Tower Bridge are additional highlights of our southern sojourn."
For the more energetic, there will be four new Footloose walking itineraries, and for the first time in many years, a dedicated cycling cruise to be accompanied by Olympic Cyclist, Chris Boardman. A very special, extended cruise to St Kilda will delight lovers of wildlife as Hebridean Princess explores the natural world of the Hebrides, home to some of the finest bird and marine life in Europe.
The 2018 Hebridean Princess Cruise Directory is available now and all 37 itineraries are available to view on Hebridean's website www.hebridean.co.uk
