No. All meals are included, as well as excursions as detailed in the itinerary and transfers from Inverness.

You'll pay extra for crew tips, Wi-Fi (although there's almost always a cellphone signal) and drinks from the bar.

What are Magna Carta Steamship Company Ltd.’s most popular activities?

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Not what we expected

The bar system was another failing there was NO table service we had to go to the bar and order and collect the drinks ourselves,Not what one expects on a so called LUXURY cruise.the cruise advertised an OPEN dining room with no allocated seating Why then was a group of passengers allowed to have a reserved table for lunch and dinner,and why when a group of passengers decided to sit at the reserved table were the group taken up stairs to the FORWARD LOUNGE AND SERVED THEIR MEAL THERE?Read More

Inner hebrides & caledonian canal

Also tea and instant coffee are available free 24/7 Overall the food that was provided was of a pretty good standard but we felt lacking in imagination for such an up market cruise and you had to select your lunch & dinner in advance by means of a tick box chart in the lobby,however as no cabin number was required it was only a guide for the galley,we changed our minds a couple of times with no problems.There is no stated policy about bringing your own drink on board so we had the odd bottle in the cabin for pre dinner drinks.Read More
