I was provided with large varieties of food and also alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks were available. Towels, soap, lotion, and shampoos were also all available. Many diverse options were available to me and the other passengers. They did a very good job to make all opportunities helpful and fun for everyone. With everything including the food and drinks everything was a great value and I'm happy to have made the purchase and I would definitely do it again someday if given the great opportunity. The stay was very relaxing but also very fun with many diverse options of things to do so that no one would get bored or hungry. The stay was worth the money and it was a very nice experience.

It was nice but not enough for me to recommend. Some of the food was not satisfactory, but otherwise, this was a good one. One of the best I've been on. Cool, different than others. I did tell my sister she would like it and the activities. She would have a ton of fun. She said she might go. It was pretty good. I think I paid a very reasonable amount for this cruise. I was able to go with my whole family and we all got nice rooms. The rooms were always clean and we never ever found items missing like some cruises have. I have been on a cruise where someone took one of my belongings.

Nice restaurant and food. Clean hallways and populated areas. Informative and helpful. Accommodations were comfortable and up-to-date. Lots of entertainment to choose from. Different day trips were offered. Each port we visited had options to choose from for what we wanted to do. The pool and ballrooms were exquisite. Package included meals. We were very pleased with the food, price was all-inclusive, and was well prepared and tasty. Very pleased with the value of the trip. Quality of stay was very good. Our rooms were spacious and well decorated. Had all amenities and staff was very polite. Felt relaxed and at ease. It was a wonderful experience.

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

Thanks to Skipper Christophe, excellent chef Anna and the other guests, we had a wonderful experience aboard the St Hilda last week. The whole trip met and exceeded our expectations. We were fortunate to have good weather and were able to explore the small islands of Rum, Eigg, Canna and Mull on foot as well as to visit a cove on Skye. Christophe was an excellent host as well as also keeping the boat in good order and making us all feel safe. When the wind was suitable he hoisted the three sails which was uplifting. It stabilised the boat he said. Anna made exceptional mostly-Scottish cuisine from a small galley with great flavours and variety and also snacks and drinks appeared just when we began to feel they’d be welcome. The dishes were all beautifully presented and the portions were generous. We saw Red Deer at close range whilst walking, seals basking and in the sea and dolphins who accompanied the boat for some distance. It was a memorable trip. Thank you to the whole team - both at base and onboard.

A great experience. Captain Peter kept us in calm waters, Bosun Leo worked hard keeping the boat ship shape and ferrying us all around and Chef Andrea kept us all very well fed. Nothing was too much trouble for this wonderful crew. Seahorse II is a lovely wee cruise boat, and the new en-suite cabins are really very spacious for such a vessel. Top that all with sunny weather and wonderful company from all on board and we had a fabulous time. Little phone signal around the edge of Skye and the small isles, and no internet, so no-one could bother you is an added bonus!

              About Seabourn

              Seattle-based Seabourn, founded in 1986 and a pioneer in luxury small-ship cruising, is now the most luxurious brand in the giant Carnival Corporation stable, and among the best lines in the cruise business. 

              What Makes Them Stand Out? 

              Among its itineraries, Seabourn features extended voyages of up to 89 days in different regions around the globe, stopping at a wide variety of ports that larger ships can’t always reach. Seabourn’s four “yachts,” as they call them, have one of the highest ratios of space per passenger in the industry, and a staff-to-passenger ratio of nearly one to one, also one of the best. 

              Who Travels With Them?

              Mostly affluent couples in the 50-plus age range who want to see the world in comfort with like-minded fellow passengers. 

              Where Do They Operate?

              Just about anywhere in the world with open seas, including all seven continents. 

              How Does It Work?

              Seabourn’s rates, while high, include fine wines and spirits, and no tipping is expected. (Optional shore excursions, however, are extra.). All cabins aboard are suites, most with verandas, and maximum passenger capacities range from 450 to 600, which, in this age of mega-ships, qualifies as “small.” The atmosphere on board is “causal, relaxed elegance.” 

              Why Travel With Them? 

              If you can afford Seabourn and feel comfortable in the floating country club atmosphere, why not? Dining, accommodations, public areas, and service are top-notch.

              About St Hilda Sea Adventures

              St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

              What Makes Them Stand Out?

              Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

              Who Travels With Them?

              All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

              Where Do They Operate?

              The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

              Why Travel With Them?

              Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
