I still use the leather key card holder from our last SeaDream cruise as my actual wallet. :D

I know my husband and I have hung out with solo travelers before, but it seems like the mood of every cruise is different. Sometimes it's not just couples, either, because there are times when large...

I think you're on the wrong board. Hebridean Island Cruises doesn't do crossings.

Your review makes me want to book another SeaDream cruise. It's been too long!

When we went, we spent two days touring the island.

We did the Xtreme Circumnav with Adventure Antigua.

We stayed at the Wind Chimes Inn, which is right by the airport. It's no frills, but the service is very good and you can sit on the balcony and watch planes take off and land. I definitely would...

I started looking at their offerings. Hebridean lost a great hotel manager to Viking Ocean Cruises.

I look forward to reading about your experiences! One of my favorite Hebridean staffers jumped ship for Viking Ocean Cruises. :D

I'm not on the cruise, but I have been on an Antigua to Barbados cruise with SeaDream. I would love to visit Antigua again, even though I got a horrific sunburn there!

Manuel's mojitos... :( I heard he's moved on, though.

Neither of SeaDream's two ships have balconies, but I have found that there is enough space that I don't miss not having one. I've always been able to find a quiet spot when I wanted one. Your...

Actually, we did an Antigua to Barbados SD cruise in November 2011. I really enjoyed Antigua and would love to go back. You had a better airport experience than I did.

Hebridean Princess requires passengers to be at least nine years old, but on most voyages, I've been among the youngest about. I am 45 now!

I feel lucky because of three voyages on SeaDream, I...

I always buy trip insurance for cruises. I've never had to use it, but the peace of mind of having it makes it worth the money to me.

Thanks for a very comprehensive review. I'm so sorry you and your wife got sick. That is really a bummer.

I'm also sorry to read that SD has apparently gone downhill. Sounds like the doctor is,...

Wow! That's just great service! Sergei gave me a big hug when we disembarked, even though I had a cold and warned him against it. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They are truly good...

While we were in Glasgow, we visited a bar that had over 700! It was crazy!

That will make Antiguans happy. I remember when we sailed SD1 out of Antigua in 2011 and we took a Segueway tour. The lady was surprised the ship was leaving out of Antigua and happy to hear it,...

We missed Egon on our cruise last month. He’s great! But Toby and Sergei did such a great job looking after us. And, though I knew nothing about whisky on our first cruise, I have now been to...

This was posted in 2009. However, it WAS the review that made me want to book Hebridean Princess for the first time back in 2012. We just finished our fourth cruise on Hebridean Princess last month...

Thanks so much for reading. Like anything else, Hebridean is not suitable for every cruiser. For instance, some people don't like guided tours. If I'm honest, I'm probably in that group myself. ...

If you want to skip straight to the cruise, start at part six. We spent a few days in Glasgow before the trip started.

We just finished our fourth Hebridean Island Cruise, this time a round trip from Oban that took us to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. I just finished writing a blog series, which is in...
Cuba!
Just got an email this morning from Sarah, our new "Personal Vacation Consultant" at SeaDream. Must be a new position. Anyway, it seems SeaDream is going to Cuba in 2019. I don't know where we'll...
