We have traveled with this ship twice, 2016 and 2017, and we are booked on a cruise this year (2018) as well). In 2013 and 2014 we traveled with River Cloud 2, which is a sister ship to Royal Crown, previous named River Cloud (1). If you want entertainment, or if you require a gym. Neither if you want all inclusive or like the American style. And if you are the type that always want to have more than you pay for you should perhaps choose another boat. What we enjoy so much on this unique ship is that very special atmosphere, we have never ever seen a ship that comes even close to this. When I walk on the ship at night I feel like Great Gatsby. You also meet new friends on a boat like this. There are so many interesting and friendly fellow travelers, you never ever run out of conversations topics. We became friends with two very nice Americans (after the cruise we have joined up once i Venice, and we also have visited them at Bermuda), we met a Swedish (we are also Swedish) couple that we visited as late as two nights ago, last year we met two couples from the southern part of Sweden, and we will see them both again i august 2018. This is not a cheap boat, but on the other hand you don not have to meet cheap and vulgar people. If you like style and nice people, this is the ship. Now, to be fair, the ship has perhaps two drawbacks. The food could be better. But this is said by one that has classic french cocking as major hobby. And the cabins below are small, so we travel upstairs. We want classic luxury, and are willing to pay for it. Read Less

We had been recommended to try the Hebridean Princess by some friends who had been half a dozen times. She is a small ship which carries 50 passengers and around 40 crew. All the cruises are all inclusive one can enjoy the best of everything at no extra cost. We chose a cruise entitled Secrets of the Western Isles which called at Colonsay, Iona, Mull, Staffa (Fingals Cave), Muck, Barra, Eriskay, Skye, Rum and finally Tobermory. The trips ashore were excellent, we were well chaperoned by the excellent staff and guide from the ship who brought champagne picnics etc ashore. At Fingals Cave the footpath was more than a little daunting but we all made it ably assisted by the wonderful staff. On board the meals were beyond compare, the chef and his team looked after us royally, he knew how to do that, as after the Queen chartered the ship she invited him to go to Buckingham Palace to cook for her for a week, not many chefs have that on their CV! I particularly enjoyed having a decanter of Malt Whisky in the cabin which was refilled every time it looked low. The arrival and departure experience was totally seamless our car was waiting for us at the dockside with the luggage stacked alongside All in all this was a trip of a lifetime and we will definitely go again.
