Hebridean Island Cruises has been synonymous with luxury cruising since 1989, when the small and unique cruise ship, Hebridean Princess first sailed in the waters of Scotland’s west coast and Western Isles. Over 29 years we have established a reputation for the highest of standards and attention to detail. To ensure that our guests enjoy their Hebridean river cruise on board Royal Crown to the full, our own Chief Purser from on board Hebridean Princess accompanies each itinerary to oversee the delivery of unobtrusive service in an unfussy style. His presence, together with that of our own experienced Cruise Director, knowledgeable Tour Manager and talented Musician provides an instant rapport which is quite unique – a successful formula redolent of any Hebridean cruise. The panoramic lounge, with its comfortable sofas and genial seating areas, is the social hub of the ship where guests enjoy a glass of Champagne and mingle before dinner as Hebridean’s musician gently plays the baby grand piano. As coffee and digestifs are enjoyed, after dinner conversation is occasionally complemented by light hearted entertainment extended by the faces of Hebridean. You may prefer to relax in the sauna or on one of the Sun Deck’s teak steamers, for an unparalleled view – the ideal place to enjoy the slow meandering of the rivers as the scenery glides gently by. Should a spot of solitude appeal, the library contains a good selection of books and has two netbooks for internet access. Alternatively, if you have your own laptop, Royal Crown has a complimentary Wi-Fi connection.
