Programme about Hebridean Cruises

Post by CaroleF » 11 Oct 2017, 11:38

I've just been reading about a forthcoming programme about Hebridean Princess - the ship the Queen has chartered twice. The programme shows the actor, Richard Wilson, on a cruise around Scotland. It's to be broadcast on 19th October on More 4 at 9pm. Apparently this was specially filmed with the actor and a small film crew aboard. The ship is very small so I wouldn't think there would be enough room for other passengers as well. I have seen their brochures and it does look lovely if you like small ships, but quite expensive although I believe everything is included. Will be worth a look.

Thanks for the heads up Carole. Can't wait to see what's being offered on that ship. Should be interesting.

Found this to be a little disappointing. Not much about the ship, a little more about the Scottish islands and too much about Richard Wilson. From what I saw last night, he didn't have to act much in One foot in the grave. He was a natural!
The cost of a 7 night cruise varied between £4.5k and 10.5 k. Certainly out of my reach.

I was a bit disappointed too, and yes definitely out of my pay grade!
