The HX website was not easy to use and did not provide a means of pre-booking excursions; some which I would have chosen to go on were booked out. The cruise started from and ended in Greenock (calling that Glasgow is misleading). Check-in was easy and welcoming. The free jackets were good - but the time to pick them up ended at 15:30, our first boarding time - but an extra session was ...

Embarkation was pretty straight forward.Pretty easy to find cabin which was excellent.All facilities in cabin you need( except for a net curtain- which they are probably going to fix)Lovely touches in the cabin,heated floor in bathroom,lighted vanity mirror and lit magnifying mirror.great tea and coffee making.All ...

We sailed on Explora I on one of her inaugural cruises, 23 days from Glasgow to New York City with intermediary stops in Scotland, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Northern Canada. The ship and the service were exceptional. While there were some communication problems many of these were being cured by the end of the trip. The food, ship, and crew were all excellent. Embarkation Very ...

We chose this cruise for the interesting itinerary. We actually did a back to back, staying onboard for the next cruise around Svalbard in the Arctic. Friendly, helpful staff and a beautiful ship, but there were issues. Our bed was two cots with a mattress topper that was different heights. Not the normal bed for a 5th floor room. We could not put our luggage underneath. We always are able to do ...

Cruise Ship with a Bus Tour

We chose this cruise because of the destination of the Northern Scottish Islands. In addition, they in theory had a strong Covid protocol. The ship, the cabin, the crew, the food were all ok. Clear limitations because of the size of the ship. Less flexibility in dining, entertainment etc. but we expected that. What stunned us was that the ship was half booked wit a bus tour company called ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We travelled on the 'Island Hopping in the Hebrides' cruise on 3 May 2022. The first four days were in perfect weather including a landing on St Kilda. Thereafter the weather deteriorated . We had not been informed when booking that all landings were on zodiacs and very weather dependent. The weather was in fact not unusual for the West of Scotland in May. Similar sized inter- island car ferries ...

I found this cruise line 3 years ago planning for our thirtieth wedding anniversary. Well then Covid hit and our cruise was delayed 2 years. I must say without a doubt the best vacation or cruise I have ever experienced. From the accommodations to the food and staff everything about this cruise is top shelf. We had a lovely cabin with a private balcony that gave us the most stunning views ...

This holiday was booked pre-pandemic for a special birthday in March 2020, so we were slightly cautious about cruising so soon after cruises recommenced in 2021. But we had nothing to fear because, as usual, the Hebridean Princess staff took everything in their stride and the cruise was as near to their normal as they could possibly make it. Hygiene was of the highest level. We took a Lateral ...

We booked this cruise as 2 adults and our 8-year-old son mainly for two reasons: 1) the facilities on board for our son - waterpark, kids club, bowling, sports court to play football 2) the entertainment, food, drink and service for us as adults - we expected a similar level to what we had experienced on every other cruise we have been on (not with MSC). In summary, the experience we ...

MSC is one of several cruise lines we would never book with but as MSC ships are like buses embarking/disembarking in several locations during a 7 night cruise we decided to try it mainly as we had the opportunity to leave from Greenock which is very unusual to say the least. Our original cruise should have been in June however with the Scottish Government not allowing ships to dock we changed ...
