Hebridean Island Cruises, formerly part of All Leisure Holidays, has returned to being an independently owned British cruise company having been brought by investors led by the collapsed firm’s majority shareholder, Roger Allard.

 

The company's sole vessel, Hebridean Princess, recently completed her annual dry docking and is undergoing the upgrading of around one third of her cabins before returning to service in March 2017.

Carrying up to 50 guests with a crew of 38, the luxury ship has been chartered twice by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for Royal family holidays off the Scottish west coast.

The first cruise of the 2017 season commences on March 1, when guests embark on the Clyde Island Explorer itinerary.

During 2017 Hebridean Princess will make a return to Norway to explore the fjords and islands between Stavanger and Bergen in a series of three itineraries.

Hebridean has introduced a variety of new cruises in familiar cruising grounds off the west coast of Scotland, together with visits to the Gaelic neighbours of Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man and its 2017 calendar includes four fresh 'Footloose' walking itineraries.

Further themed cruises have been specially designed for lovers of food and drink, history and heritage, golf, gardens, nature and wildlife.

Hebridean's European River cruise programme features Royal Crown and includes itineraries on the Rhine, Danube and Main.
