Hebridean finds new owner

HEBRIDEAN CRUISE LINE, which was in administration (see AERBT 23 April 2009) has been acquired by All Leisure Group plc, the operator of Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery.  Hebridean’s 50-passenger Hebridean Princess will fit in very neatly as a boutique operation with All Leisure’s fleet which includes Discovery (700 passengers) and Minerva (400 passengers). Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic and Hebridean offer destination-led cruises to a number of countries and are focused on the market for mature passengers while another company within the group, Discover Egypt, offers package holidays to Egypt, including cruises and excursions on the River Nile.  New Chairman of Hebridean Island Cruises is Lord Sterling, who held a similar position at P & O/Princess before its acquisition by Carnival. www.hebridean.co.uk
