The warrant - for the provision of Cruise Holidays - came into effect from January 1, 2012. Hebridean Island Cruises will be the only travel brand currently with a Royal Warrant from The Queen.
The 50-guest Hebridean Princess is one of the world's smallest luxury cruise ships, offering unique 4-to-10 night itineraries in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and Ireland. The Hebridean Princess has been chartered on two separate occasions by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and members of her family (in 2006 and 2010).
Although I don't hand out warrants, I did sail a delightful Mediterranean cruise on the Hebridean Spirit in 2004, a small ship no longer owned by the company. Although most of the cruise line's guests are from the UK, Hebridean is an excellent choice for Anglophiles or those looking for a small ship luxury experience in Scotland or Ireland.
Hebridean Island Cruises is part of All Leisure Holidays Ltd., one of the largest British-owned cruise companies operating a fleet of four vessels - Minerva (Swan Hellenic), Hebridean Princess (Hebridean Island Cruises), Discovery and Voyager (Voyages of Discovery). River cruising programs are also available with all brands.
