Hebridean Sky is a cruise ship owned by London-based cruise company Noble Caledonia. As an ice-rated vessel she has operated as an expedition cruise ship in Antarctica and in the Arctic. She was also known under the names Renaissance VII, Regina Renaissance, Renai I, Sun, Island Sun, Corinthian II, Sea Explorer, Sea Explorer I.
I photographed the Hebridean Sky off Chebucto Head, Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is a dream ship for many of us, a transport to remote and exotic places.
