My husband and I just had the pleasure of sailing on Hebridean Princess on a back to back cruise through Argyll, Bute, and Kintyre. We were celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary and the two cruises together totaled ten nights onboard. Before we sailed on Hebridean Princess, my husband and I enjoyed two cruises with SeaDream Yacht Club. We like small vessels and Hebridean Princess certainly qualifies, as no more than 50 guests sail at a time.
From the moment we were piped onboard to the moment we disembarked and got into an Edinburgh bound taxi arranged by the purser on the Princess, we felt wonderfully taken care of. Many luxury cruise lines promise all inclusiveness. Hebridean Princess actually delivers. It is literally possible to board this ship and not pay one more dime after you've paid the fare. We never even had to hand over a credit card! All excursions are included, right down to the entrance fees and stops at coffee shops. On turnaround day, Hebridean Princess booked and paid for a cab for me, my husband, and another lady doing a back to back cruise and sent us to a museum. They also paid for lunch. Wi-Fi is free.
We were booked in Loch Torridon, one of the cheapest cabins because it has no windows or portholes. Nevertheless, the cabin was very comfortable and fairly spacious, with an excellent king sized bed, plenty of storage, and a tiny but very comfortable shower with plenty of hot water.
