Hebridean Island Cruises suspends remaining 2020 sailings

Sailings on board Hebridean Princess and Royal Crown are cancelled for the rest of the year
Hebridean Island Cruises has postponed its Scottish river cruises until March 2021, and cancelled its European river cruises scheduled to depart in October.


‘Due to the continuing situation, and the confusion surrounding which cruises are allowed to operate around Scotland, we have taken the decision to cancel all of our remaining 2020 sailings on board Hebridean Princess’, says Ken Charleson, managing director, Hebridean Island Cruises Ltd, dicussing the luxury 50 passenger vessel. ‘We continue to look forward to March 2021 when our new season will begin.’ 

He added that Hebridean is ‘mindful of the communities of the Highlands and Islands and the need to protect local residents from any threat of the spread of coronavirus.’

European cruises

Charleson continued, 'We have also been advised by the owners of river ship, Royal Crown, that they have made the decision not to operate the vessel this year. Therefore, as a result of this decision, we are no longer able to operate our European river cruises scheduled to depart in October 2020.’
