Hebridean Sky

LUXURY & FLY-CRUISE (114 / 71 GUESTS)

Introduction to the Hebridean Sky

The Hebridean Sky (formerly Sea Explorer) has always been known for its effortless elegance, impeccable service and atmosphere of charm and camaraderie. Originally built in 1992 and refurbished in 2016 , this luxury cruise ship provides fine service and four-star amenities. Each suite has ocean views and is elegantly designed with a sitting area. Several suites have private balconies accessed via sliding glass doors.

The Hebridean Sky can accommodate 114 guests in 57 suites and for the Fly-Cruise voyages the capacity has been limited to just 75 guests.  The reason for this is to accommodate everyone on a single flight from (or to) Punta Arenas – a greater number of guests would require two flights; and the inherent delay waiting for the second flight as well as the increased risk of possible delays associated with poor weather.
