British cruise lines

Recommended Posts

Many years ago,  We booked a cruise through Apple vacations and were on a ship with a British crew and mostly British passengers.    The ship had elevenses and tea time every day.     Do any cruises like that still exist?

Saga's afternoon tea featured tea grown in Cornwall when we sailed with them a few years ago. They're naming a brand new ship on July 5th and have another one on order. They trade on being very British (and for the 50yo and older market) but as with most 'British' lines these days only a handful of officers will actually be from the UK.


Or there's Hebridean who run a very small luxury ship mainly around the Scottish coast and Western Isles. They're so good that the Queen has chartered the ship for a family holiday.
