Market leading Scottish small-ship cruising specialist, The Majestic Line, has confirmed a new purpose-built vessel, which will be delivered for their 2019 summer season.
The build begins this month at Ardmaleish Boatbuilding Co. Ltd on the Island of Bute, and will see Majestic Line’s newest boat in operation in 2019, quite fittingly, in the company’s 15th year of operation
The Majestic Line’s two oldest small boutique cruise ships, Glen Massan and Glen Tarsan were originally converted from wooden fishing vessels. The first vessel, Glen Massan is now 13 years old and our second vessel Glen Tarsan is now 11 years old.
During the winter months, The Majestic Line gave both of the two mini cruise vessels, a complete overhaul. Many of the improvements are unseen, such as maintaining the wooden superstructure, replacing major mechanical parts, putting in new equipment and a new galley for the Glen Massan.
Jane McDonald is to present a brand new TV series on Channel 5, which is all about different types of cruise holidays. The new show ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ is to launch on 10 February 2017.
The four-part series will feature a range of different cruise ships of all different types and sizes. In the first episode Jane McDonald spends seven-nights cruising the Caribbean on board MSC Divina.
The Majestic Line has announced an exciting new short cruise to its new custom designed small cruise ship, Glen Etive, which launched in April 2016.
The new three-night cruise has been added to the cruise line’s cruise calendar, following many previous guests suggesting a short cruise on the new vessel. The short cruise will depart Oban on 22 April 2017 and will cruise Loch Linnhe, Glencoe, the Sound of Mull, Tobermory and Loch Sunart, whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery and wildlife.
