London’s famous Ritz Hotel, the luxurious Belmond Royal Scotsman train and the floating Scottish manor, the Hebridean Princess, are just a few of the exclusive experiences guests will encounter on a new, premium Unique Journey through the UK in 2016, offered by Cruise Express.

The 17-night ‘A Very Royal Affair’ journey by rail, road and sea features a tour inside Buckingham Palace, a ticket to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and a visit to the fairytale castle of Inveraray in the Scottish Highlands.

Departing Australia on 8 August, 2016, the tour begins with two nights in London’s legendary Ritz Hotel which sets the tone for an itinerary tailor made for travellers keen to explore England and Scotland in style. After a tour inside the grand rooms of Buckingham Palace, guests will board the gleaming Belmond Royal Scotsman train for a luxurious overnight journey from London to Edinburgh. The journey includes champagne, afternoon tea, cocktails, canapes and a gourmet dinner onboard the famous train.

In Scotland, guests will attend the spectacular Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and visit the Royal Yacht Britannia – once the Queen’s own yacht. A night is also spent in an elegant lodge on the sprawling estate of historic Dumfries House, a stately Scottish mansion boasting an unrivalled collection of original 18th century Chippendale furniture. A tour highlight is Inveraray Castle, which is nestled by a loch in the Scottish Highlands.

From the picturesque port of Oban on Scotland’s west coast, guests will then embark on a seven-night voyage aboard the floating country house, Hebridean Princess. After being welcomed aboard the elegant, 49-guest ship by a Scottish bagpiper, guests will cruise amongst the wild and beautiful islands of The Hebrides. Twice chartered by the Queen for private family holidays, the Hebridean Princess boasts just 30 staterooms – each uniquely named and decorated in rich, baronial style.

While enjoying gourmet cuisine and traditional haggis ceremonies onboard, guests will visit many remote islands in the inner and outer Hebrides including Jura, Barra, Mull, Iona and Coll, with some islands inhabited by just a few hardy residents.  Shore excursions and beverages are complimentary throughout the cruise.

The ‘A Very Royal Affair’ package is available from $18,999 per person, twin-share, including return flights from Australia.
