Hebridean Princess Gaelic Adventure

Sail Date: August 2012
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Other

We last experienced Hebridean Princess in 2010 with a trip round the Hebrides. Due to sea conditions we were not able to get over to the Outer Islands so Plan B came into operation and the Captain took us to other interesting places where the water was kinder!

We have just returned from our second trip, the Gaelic Explorer which embarked at Cork and ambled northwards along the east coast of Ireland calling at Dublin,Isle of Man, Strangford Lough, Arran and Bute before finishing up at Greenock. En route we were coached to a number of interesting places, including Mount Stewart and Mount Stuart - quite different houses! The ship should first have diverted south to Kinsale but, again, due to weather conditions discretion bacame the better part of valour and that trip was done by coach. Plan B!

Again the Hebridean Princess experience was quite magic. The crew and serving staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The chef and his team were one down on More numbers but again served up top class food from a pint sized galley. Don't know how they do it. It has to be said that at first sight the 9 day cruise looks expensive but it has to be realised that once on board you pay nothing more (unless you opt for premium booze!). All shore trips are included as are any meals and refreshments taken whilst on shore excursions.
All in all a wonderful and relaxing experience, highly recommended. Less
