Deep down in the ship Hebridean Spirit's taste buds come to live. On Castle Deck you will find the attractive, wood-paneled Argyll Restaurant. While portholes offer a view of the sea, it is obvious that the room's main "raison d'Ítre" is food. Hebridean Spirit is known for its excellent food delivered by its British kitchen brigade. In a complete change from many cruise lines, most tables in the main dining room are for two. Should you wish to dine with friends, you will have to request a larger table at time of booking. The fact that Hebridean Spirit only carries 80 guests make that the Argyll Restaurant feels homely and extremely cozy. As you would expect from an ultra-luxury boutique vessel, most wines, spirits and champagne served on board are included in the fare.

You will feel instantly at home in any of Hebridean Spirit's staterooms. With the smallest unit measuring a lofty 20.5 sq m (215 sq ft), you will have ample space to relax. As Hebridean cruises come without any form of scheduled entertainment or gambling, chances are you will spend more time in your stateroom than on high-action ships. All staterooms on Hebridean Spirit have names rather than numbers, which only add to the country home feeling that is so obvious around the whole vessel. With its distinctly different look on luxury cruising, Hebridean manages to operate a utterly charming vessel that is just about perfect for their discerning British clientele. Isn't it about time this gem of a vessel is discovered by the rest of the world?
