Hebridean Island Cruises Launches Hebridean River Cruises for 2012

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 2, 2011) - Hebridean Island Cruises, serving the ultra-luxury small ship cruising market with its five-star cruise ship Hebridean Princess, has announced the launch of a new dedicated River Cruises program onboard Hebridean's new Royal Crown river ship.

Having undergone an extensive renovation in 2010, the luxurious cruiser will sail on the Rhine and Danube rivers during the spring and autumn of 2012 operating four 7-night itineraries. Harking back to the golden age of cruising, with an opulent feel of 1930's Europe, Hebridean River Cruises will offer 79 guests elegant surroundings, together with the same personal service they would expect when sailing on Hebridean Princess. With 42 Art Deco style cabins, the Royal Crown will also offer a number of single occupancy cabins.

"We are pleased to offer exciting new river cruising itineraries that deliver Hebridean's luxurious and unique brand to the fascinating market of river cruising. The combination of our Scottish flair and our new cruises to the heart of Continental Europe's most beautiful cities and landscapes takes the Hebridean experience to a new and intriguing level," states Ivonne Brown, Vice President of Marketing, North America.

All Hebridean River Cruises are fully inclusive, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, shore excursions, gratuities, port taxes, and a distinguished guest speaker program. Accompanied by Hebridean Island Cruises' experts, Hebridean's Royal Crown provides the highest degree of comfort and offers a luxurious lounge, a fine dining restaurant, library, sundeck with bar, personal concierge and a choice of suites across three grades: Royal Suites, Premium Suites and Deluxe Suites.

Colin Stone, Managing Director, Swan Hellenic & Hebridean Island Cruises, commented: "Hebridean Princess has enjoyed exceptionally high occupancy levels throughout this year and from guest feedback received we are certain that our customers will be delighted by the opportunity to cruise along the waterways of Europe. Hebridean River Cruises complements Hebridean Princess in terms of quality, grandeur and atmosphere and we look forward to welcoming guests on board next year."
