Testimonials

We have been offering unique small ship cruises and worldwide escorted tours for over 30 years and nothing pleases us more than ensuring that we continue to exceed our guests’ expectations. We are honoured that so many of our clients come back to travel with us time and time again (our Sky vessels frequently sail with 70% repeat guests on board) and trust us enough to refer us to their family and friends.

 

 

Below is a small selection of recent testimonials to find out what some of our past guests have to say about their experience with us...

  “Thank you for organising our recent cruise on MS Hebridean Sky from Palma Mallorca to Valletta, Malta, your first post-pandemic International cruise. It was a most enjoyable cruise to some islands we had visited previously with NC, and to other islands we were not familiar with. From the pre-departure check list with the list of required documents, the ‘Fit to Fly’ test at the Sofitel Hotel, T5 & the charter flight to Mallocra to the on-board assistance provided by the NC team, everything was excellent & ran smoothly. However we realise that, like a swan on the river, the smoothness on the surface hid the efforts under the surface, and we wished to express our sincere thanks for your outstanding team effort.” Shirley & Tony Sherrard, High Wycombe (October 2021)

  “I am so impressed with the way the Company dealt with all of this [Covid 19] and the patience of telephone staff, not to mention your refund policy. The way you cope with adversity is the difference between the others and you and why you have such brand loyalty.” Mr Bernard Crocker, Surrey (May 2021)

 “My husband and I would like to thank all the team at Noble Caledonia and all on Island Sky for a wonderful holiday out of Liverpool on 26th June. This was our first sea going cruise with Noble - it was long awaited and like many folks we began to wonder if it ever would happen - and it did. Yes with a different itinerary, different dates and different length - it was wonderful, everything we had hoped for and more. Alright, we couldn't land in Scotland but the weather was good and the Zodiac expeditions outstanding especially village bay on St Kilda and the calm waters of early morning at Staffa. We visited places we had never been to before - Northern Ireland, Lundy, the Isles of Scilly. There was a real sense of adventure as we made our first real forays away from home after all the restrictions of COVID. At all times we felt safe and well looked after.” Mr & Mrs Breingan, Glasgow (July 2021)

  “My wife and I have just recently returned from a trip on board the MS Island Sky disembarking in Troon on the 5th of October. We have done many many journeys with Noble Caledonia but I have to admit we were a little apprehensive at the start of this trip. However I wish to compliment you and your team on the way that the whole trip was organised particularly with regard to the Covid measures that you had introduced.” Mr Jeffrey Adams, London (October 2021)

  “It's great working with NC, as you are so responsive and accommodating. I really have a sense of 'peace of mind' with your organization. I witnessed first hand the rapidity at which you provided refunds for cancelled cruises. I have not had any other cruise line perform to the high level of customer focus which NC has. NC is now the only tour operator I check daily for new itineraries!” Ms Joanne Brazeau, Quebec, Canada (April 2021)

  “We would like to express our thanks to you and your teams for all their patience and help over the years, the attention to detail and personal service you offer is truly comforting and no query however small or repetitive is dismissed. We feel in safe considered hands, as much as anyone can. Bless you all and thank you again for your help and time.” Mrs Penny Eisen, Hertfordshire (May 2021)

  “My wife and I have just returned from an excellent cruise and feel compelled to write to you to tell you what a success it was and to personally thank you. We were delighted to be with guests who had a real interest in wildlife and particularly to be in the company of five couples who had returned with us from the Falklands after our part-aborted cruise in March last year. We were delighted to have Hannah Lawson as our expedition leader and with the quality of the other Zodiac drivers. The staff who cleaned the cabin were excellent as usual. We know that you cannot take all the credit for the wonderful weather, but it was not just that which contributed to make it a memorable holiday.” Mr David Lloyd, Brecon, Wales (July 2021)

  “Having arrived back from Oporto on Saturday afternoon, I have to congratulate Noble Caledonia on the excellence of all the intricate travel arrangements. My IT competence is at the lowest imaginable level – left on my own I could never have generated the essential heap of paperwork. From arriving at the Sofitel early on Saturday the 4th until our return a week later, your team were fantastic lifting all my worries! As a businessman I understand how intricate this entire operation was, let alone the adverse cost implications. The charter flight was particularly appreciated. A big thank you to everyone involved both on the ground and in the back-office.” Mr Michael Allan, Middlesex (September 2021)

  “We would like to thank all at Noble Caledonia and your agents and staff in Portugal for the way the [Douro] river cruise was managed. It was a great success.  It cannot have been an easy task but the fact that all the passengers tested negative on the penultimate day is evidence that all the planning and on-site organising worked well.” Mr & Mrs Bayton, Surrey (September 2021)
