Why cruise on this ship?
Lord of the Glens feels like a cross between relaxing in a stately country manor and taking a voyage aboard a private yacht with friends.
Each meal is an invitation to dine among friends. You’ll find the cuisine is excellent and focuses on local provisions. Meals are served to the entire expedition community in a single seating, with some tables accommodating an odd number for easy mixing. Independent travelers will find a welcome everywhere. Dress is always casual and the general ambience is relaxed and informal. The dining room is wrapped in picture windows, so we’re sure to never miss the view.
The open top deck is set with tables and chairs, offering an ideal perch to take in the view of the Scottish countryside or see the busy crew at work as we pass through the locks. There are teak decks and warm mahogany finishes throughout. The feeling aboard is as if relaxing in a fine country home.
Delfin II boasts a range of expedition equipment, making your journey exciting and filled with new experiences.
There is a small library aboard the ship, with a selection of games and books.
The ship operates with an open bridge, and you are invited to visit the watch officer and learn about the calm business of navigation. There may occasionally be times when the bridge is restricted to shipboard personnel only, but any other time you are welcome.
Health and fitness
Some bicycles will be aboard the ship that may be used to explore on your own or ride along the canal. At Loch Ness, kayaks will be available for use.
Kids and teens
Please note: Delfin II does not offer any dedicated children's facilities.
