Cruise Schedule Changes due to Covid-19

Based on the guidelines from the Scottish Government and our insurers, we will hopefully be able to resume cruising from 4th August 2020.   All 2020 cruises have been reduced in price by 20% with further discounts available for private charters.  We’re also taking bookings on a risk-free basis for the rest of the year so if you cannot travel due to re-imposed or extended covid-19 restrictions or you have symptoms yourself, all money paid in advance will be refunded. 

Of course when we do cast off the lines with our first guests on board, we will be operating far differently from what our vision was back in 2018 in order to keep our customers and crew safe.  Our “new normal” will see staff and guests wearing suitable PPE, rigorous cleaning and sanitizing will be carried out to new industry standards with longer periods between cruises and we will be limiting the occupancy onboard to allow more space for guests to spread out and socially distance.  

Dining onboard will no longer be family style around a large table but in spaced at individual tables with staggered timing.  On the plus side, we will still have the fabulous Scottish larder to call upon for our menus with the freshest seafood & shellfish, a real treat for when lockdown is lifted.

We hope that you will join us for an adventure of a lifetime when its safe to travel again.  In the meantime, stay safe.
