Here is our home for the next week or so – a ship called the Hebridean Princess which we join today in the port of Oban after a transfer from Glasgow airport.
It’s a nice little ship with a complement of 50 guests accommodated in 30 cabins. She has a crew of 38. You might recognise her as she is the ship that was chartered by HM the Queen now that she doesn’t have a royal yacht at her disposal.
Tonight is an informal night while we settle in to life on board.
