1. The Majestic Line
The Majestic Line looks so fabulous. I’ve done two around the British Isles cruises and the Scottish ports are fantastically beautiful! The spectacular coastline and islands of the West coast of Scotland and the Hebrides need to be explored by sea and the Majestic Line will ensure you do this in traditional luxury. The Majestic Line has itineraries exploring the 6 main cruising areas of Scotland choose between a 3, 6 or 10 night cruise. They have four beautiful small ships, custom designed for sea Voyages. Two have been converted from traditional fishing vessels and two purpose built ships. Have a look at their website http://www.themajesticline.co.uk to plan your Scottish adventure!
2. Noble Caledonia.
Until recently I had never heard of this lovely little cruise line! Noble Caledonia was established in 1991, they’re primarily for the older British Cruise market and focus on culturally enriching voyages. They’re seen as one of the leading small ship specialist, constantly developing, unusual and incredible tours and cruises. They have an impressive fleet of ships undertaking expeditions, Ocean voyages and River cruises, definitely something for everyone. Have a look at http://www.noble-Caledonia.co.uk
3. Paul Gauguin Cruises
Paul Gauguin Cruises may well of been taken over by Ponant last year, but they will still operate as Paul Gauguin. Currently they have a single cruise ship, the m/s Paul Gauguin which sails around the beautiful South Pacific, Tahiti and French Polynesia. The ship was built to specifically sail the Pacific, completed in 1997 for what was then Radission Seven Seas Cruises, better known to us today as Regent Seven Seas. In December 2019 Ponant finalised a contract with Fincantieri to construct a Hybrid vessel for delivery in 2022. An exciting ship to look out for in 2022. http://www.pgcruises.com

5. Sea Cloud Cruises
A Hamburg based cruise line, has operated 2 ships for the last 18 years. They operate luxurious cruises aboard beautiful, Windjammer vessels. Sea Cloud and Sea Cloud 2, are fully rigged sailing ships, they generally sail to small, unusual ports in the Caribbean and Europe. This is an exciting year for Sea Cloud , later in the year they will welcome Sea Cloud Spirit to their fleet. She is scheduled to make her maiden voyage from Lisbon to Rome later this year. 136 guests will sail in 69 outside cabins, 25 of which will have balconies. There will also be a spa, a fitness area and even a lift aboard, a first for a sailing ship. Sailing aboard Sea Cloud isn’t cheap, however for the intimacy of a private yacht like experience, it definitely worth treating yourself! http://www.seacloud.com
