The Ideal Cruising Experience For The Solo Traveller

Escape to another world with the award-winning Majestic Line, the perfect small boat cruise for the solo traveller.

A Majestic Line cruise offers the opportunity to explore the glorious coastline of Argyll and the Inner Hebrides in significant style and comfort on two beautifully converted wooden vessels, the Glen Tarsan and Glen Massan.  As well as enjoying spectacular scenery and wildlife, exceptional hospitality and delicious food and drink, travellers going it alone can also avoid single supplements.

Both vessels have six en-suite cabins accommodating a maximum of 11 guests. On each Majestic Line cruise, two of these cabins are reserved for single occupancy with no additional supplement. 

Marie Thoms, Sales Manager explains, “As well as solo guests, we often get groups of three interested in our cruises, perhaps a couple treating Mum to a special holiday, who will also benefit from our no single supplement policy.  On top of our normal single traveller allocation we are now offering all remaining cabins for single occupancy plus a discount for June (20%) and July (10%) 2012.”

Sailing on the lovingly restored vessels is a congenial and relaxed affair.  For solo travellers, getting to know fellow passengers is easy over informal communal dinners or after dinner drinks on deck admiring a fabulous sunset or spotting some local porpoises.  There’s scope to be sociable as well as spend time alone if preferred.

The size of the vessels allows inshore access to charming and remote areas not available to bigger cruise vessels. Each day the vessels drop anchor allowing guests the freedom to go ashore and explore alone or in groups. There are many interesting historical places to visit and flora and fauna to observe both on land and at sea.

The Majestic Line gets extremely good feedback from their guests mainly due to the high standard of hospitality provided by the crew.  They take guests to idyllic and scenic places, cook amazing meals from locally sourced ingredients and generally serve their every need in a most unobtrusive way. 

Mrs Buckley, who cruised in April 2012 said “As my first solo holiday since the death of my husband I could not have made a better choice or felt more comfortable. Tea in bed on my birthday and card and rose were perfect!”

The remote areas of the cruise itineraries are best accessed from the sea and surprisingly easy to reach. Guests are offered free pickup from Glasgow Airport for a one-hour transfer to Holy Loch departures in South Argyll. Transfers to Oban departures in North Argyll can be arranged at cost. 

 The cost of the 6-night cruise is £1830.00 per person including all meals and wine with dinner. The cost of the 3-night cruise is £965.00.
