Ships & Hotels

Our passion is small ships and the vessels we use are of course big enough to sail the seven seas comfortably but small enough to drop anchor in places off the beaten track, avoiding the regular, crowded tourist stops whenever possible. Whether you’re planning your first cruise, or you are well versed in the world of small ship or river cruising, there is a huge array of vessels to choose from. We hope you enjoy browsing through our selection of small ships. Whether you join one of our voyages close to home in the Hebrides or in far flung Melanesia, you will be assured of a warm welcome on board and a big experience aboard one of our small ships.

Noble Caledonia is very fortunate to have three of the finest small ships in the world, the MS Island Sky, MS Caledonian Sky and MS Hebridean Sky. These ex-Renaissance Cruises sister vessels accommodate just 114 to 118 guests and are not only three of the most comfortable and well equipped small ships, but also three of the friendliest and most efficiently run. Our crews of just over 70, many of whom have been with us for many years, are dedicated to offering the best possible experience. It is this gentle, kind and efficient atmosphere on board that makes our vessels so popular.

On board the MS Island Sky, MS Caledonian Sky and the MS Hebridean Sky, you do not need to worry about tipping staff as we have included this in your holiday price. In addition we tip all our guides and drivers along the way, thereby taking away the hassle of always having to remember to have some small change with you. We also include shore excursions and drinks with meals on board and from March 2019 will also include complimentary Wi-Fi on all three vessels.

Check out the Fleet Calendar for an up-to-date list of all voyages.
