The small UK-based luxury ship travel company Hebridean Island Cruises announced it would reposition Hebridean Princess to England's south coast for the 2021 summer season.
The ship will operate a series of voyages during July-August departing from homeports Isle of Portland (Weymouth, Dorset England) and Cardiff Wales, prior to returning to her principal homeport Oban Scotland in September 2021.
During the newly announced summer season, Hebridean Princess will visit several destinations in Wales, along with Lundy Island, Isle of Wight, Isles of Scilly, plus some smaller ports on the southern coast.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus/COVID crisis, and Scotland's ban on cruising, Hebridean Princess is due to relocate to the south coast during July-August. The boat is no stranger to England's south coast having sailed in/around the area on many occasions previously.
The originally scheduled cruises to Shetland and Orkney have been cancelled and passengers who had bookings have been given first opportunity to transfer to the south coast itineraries.
Hebridean Princess is expected to return to Scotland to pick up her scheduled itineraries from September 3.
