We're Good to Go in March 2021

Protecting the health, safety and welfare of our guests, crew and the remote communities which we visit, is our number one priority and we have been working hard to adhere to government and public health guidance. We're delighted to announce that Hebridean has been awarded the 'We're Good to Go' accreditation. 

Visit Scotland award a 'We're Good to Go' certificate to all tourism businesses who have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check they have everything in place to reopen safely. 

This new UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark provides confidence for you, our guests, as well as  communities and tourism businesses alike - as we work towards the future.

Highly Commended in the Silver Travel Advisor Awards

We're delighted to announce, that at yesterday's Silver Travel Advisor Awards, Hebridean Island Cruises was Highly Commended in the Best Specialist Cruise Line category.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us.

Over 225,000 votes were cast - 60% more than last year, setting a new record – in this year’s Silver Travel Awards as, in these unprecedented times, older travellers sought to show their appreciation of the travel companies, cruise lines and destinations that have delivered the very best for the over 50s in the last 12 months.

Many things have had to adapt to new circumstances this year, the Silver Travel Awards included. For the first time, the Awards were virtual, with the worthy winners announced to viewers at an online ceremony broadcast on Tuesday 15 September to an audience of hundreds of travel industry colleagues and Silver Travel Advisor members.

With the inimitable Gyles Brandreth on fine form as the witty Master Of Ceremonies and the action actually taking place in the Wallace Collection, home to The Laughing Cavalier among many outstanding artworks, the spirit of the Silver Travel Awards was still very much to the fore.
