Riviera Travel has launched their first-ever UK-based voyage with a cruise to Scotland’s highlands and islands.

The travel company usually runs more international trips, but with international travel still up in the air due to the coronavirus pandemic and many Brits wanting to stay closer to home this year for their peace of mind anyway, the Riviera Travel cruise around the Scottish highlands and islands could be exactly what we need this summer.

“Discover the best of Scotland by sea on our brand new small ship cruise, setting sail for the first time in summer 2021,” says Riviera Travel. “A truly unique experience, the MS Seaventure is the only ship of her size to cruise the breathtaking waters of the UK, offering all the exciting possibilities of ocean cruising aboard a boutique ship with fewer than 170 guests.

“You’ll be able to dock in smaller harbours that large ships cannot reach, getting right to the heart of the destinations you visit. Plus, with a fascinating tour at every port of call, there’s so much to see as you sail on the world-class small ship.”

The MS Seaventure ship has also had a recent refurbishment when it was upgraded back in 2019, so it’s ready to provide a deluxe experience for travellers on their exploration of the Outer Hebrides.

The luxury vessel features a fitness suite, sauna, and heated saltwater pool for guests to relax and unwind while they are on board - and there is plenty of staff to ensure that everybody is catered for.

The small ship will only hold 160 guests, while there are 90 crew members, meaning that there will always be a “friendly and professional member of the team waiting to make your MS Seaventure experience as special as it can be.”

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
