Since launching our third mini-cruise vessel in April 2017, we have experienced a massive surge in forward bookings – there is now less than 5% of availability left for the 2017 season across all three vessels. One third of cabin availability is already booked out for the 2018 season and private charter of the whole boat is currently 42% of all forward sales for 2018. The company also has several charter bookings for the 2019 season. View the dates still available here>
Part of the reason for this is that our mini-cruise vessels, with only 12 guests on board, are perfect for a private charter holiday for a group of family and friends. It is the ultimate fun escape and unique adventure to the most remote and idyllic parts of the Hebrides. Guests can tailor the itinerary to suit their own dreams and desires while being totally pampered by our crew with full onboard hospitality – a true luxury. The food served on board is a major selling point for charters. The Majestic Line has four excellent Chefs who have the freedom to construct delicious menus from the best of local produce.
Small-ship cruising is a new, burgeoning tourism sector in the Hebrides, pioneered by the Majestic Line, now in our 13th year. Private charter has grown steadily as an important market for the company; major celebrities have discovered the joy of taking off to explore remote places in complete privacy while the general public love the opportunity to do something exceptional, often to mark a special date or life change.
People from all walks of life book a private charter and everyone gets star treatment! A private charter has to be booked well in advance to secure a date which has no other bookings and people are now booking up to two years in advance to secure the date for their dream trip.
