The Hebridean Sky (formerly the Sea Explorer) is one of our favourite small luxury expedition ships. This ship provided high levels of comfort and fantastic guiding, ensuring that you love your time on this beautiful boat.
This boat has a capacity for 112 guests and with various excursion offers it means that all guests can visit the landing sites at the same time in small groups led by the guides.
The style of the boat is very comfortable with carpets throughout, lots of comfy seating areas and spacious cabins. This boat recently underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment, and it is gorgeous. Whilst on board you can enjoy the library the calming lounge and bar area where there are huge panoramic windows or even enjoy the views from the comforts of the outdoor sundeck. You are also given a Hebridean Sky jacket to keep.
All standard cabins are en suite and come complete with exterior views, flat screens, marble finished bathrooms, sofa, twin or double bed, mini bar, telephone and at a minimum are 225 sq.ft in size.Other cabin options include a Owners Cabin (385 sq. ft), a penthouse (325 sq. ft) and a veranda (260 sq. ft).These upgraded rooms all have nespresso machines, private balconies, complimentary mini bar and a $100 credit card for the gift shop.
Aside from this being a truly fantastic vessel, what is better is the guiding and camaraderie created by all the team. The team that works on this boat only get together for the Antarctica season and have all previously being high up working for a leading Polar expedition company.
