2023 Calendar Launched Early

Due to exceptional demand we are delighted to launch our 2023 calendar six months early.  With prices held this is the perfect time for our guests to plan ahead and book their dream cruise.  With very limited availability in 2021 and some of our most popular cruises already sold out in 2022 we wanted to allow our guests the opportunity to guarantee their cabin on their favourite cruise itinerary.  New for 2022 our Orkney cruises sold out quickly, so the addition of dates in 2023 were a must.  But with only two 10-night Oban to Orkney and Orkney to Oban cruises and three 6-night 'Orkney: A Voyage Through Time'… Read More
