Hebridean Sky

Is it a luxury ship? An adventure ship? It’s both!

In the spring of 2016, the Hebridean Sky underwent a ten-million-dollar refit, transforming her into the safest and most comfortable ship in her class. Formerly known as the Sea Explorer, she has always been known for her effortless elegance, impeccable service, and atmosphere of charm and camaraderie. The Hebridean Sky blends the trappings of a luxury ship with the technological features and safety of an adventure ship, and you'll find many of its routes in our range of Antarctic cruises, but it also offers a Greenland cruise in the northern hemisphere's summertime.   

On the Hebridean Sky, you can look forward to a sundeck with jacuzzi, an exercise room, a library with internet access, and a luxurious lounge. If you're looking for an adventure but don't want to compromise in luxury, then this ship for you! Check out our polar cruise deals if you want to catch an early-bird or last-minute deal on one of Hebridean Sky's big cruises. And please get in touch if you have any questions.

Hebridean Sky continues that tradition, while adding a host of new amenities as well as state of the art stabilization, fuel efficiency, and upgraded communications systems. All suites and public spaces have been completely redecorated.
