MS Island Sky

MS Island Sky

Sister Ship to the Hebridean Sky

Island Sky and Hebridean Sky are truly sisters. Built in the same Italian Shipyard, both boast spacious, well-appointed suites, stylish common areas, ice-strengthened hulls, and redundant core technology that allows them to operate smoothly, even under the most challenging conditions.

Both ships are all-suite, all-inclusive small expedition vessels with touches of elegance throughout.

In 2017, Island Sky received additional upgrades, including the addition of tinted sliding glass doors to all cabins on Promenade Deck 4.

Polar Latitudes first contracted Island Sky in December of 2017 and chartered her for many seasons. Her final scheduled voyage for PL took place in January of 2023.

Small Ship Experience

This has been our 1st smaller ship/expedition experience and we loved every minute. It was so special to sit down with the crew members at mealtime and get to know them, even the Captain mingled with passengers (and washed boots), this is something we have never seen on the big ship cruises.
