Chief Purser David Indge retiring...

Recommended Posts

Just got the news today that Dave is stepping down from purser duties on Hebridean Princess, although he will still do the river cruises on Royal Crown and possibly sub on Princess when he’s needed.  I have to say, he’s truly an awesome guy, so I’m sad that he’s moving on after fourteen years.  But I also think his retirement is well deserved.


I know Iain Gibson is a purser now, and he’s also great.  I hope whomever fills Dave’s shoes is worthy of the job.  I wish him Godspeed.  Maybe I’ll get around to doing a river cruise now, although most of the places they go are within driving distance for us...for now, anyway.

A river cruise is worthy at least once, if you like the itinerary. 

sadly, we are two years from visiting Scotland at the current rate but this line has my utmost attention

Well, if you ever do get to sail on Hebridean Princess, I hope you're there during a cruise Dave subs on.  He is one in a million!


I heard that he was the purser when Queen Elizabeth sailed on Hebridean Princess the first time and she liked him so much that she specifically requested him the second time she cruised.  I can see why.  He's never met a stranger.
