ABOVE:  The MS Island Sky departs from Venice on its way to the Adriatic.

Noble Caledonia is primarily a tour operator and cruise-travel agency, but it does have two chartered oceangoing vessels that it operates under its own brand in Europe:

  • Island Sky (formerly the Renaissance VIII), an intimate 4200-ton vessel that carries a maximum of 116 passengers. The ship underwent a major overhaul in 2010 and now offers such modern amenities as flat-panel TVs with DVD players and Wi-Fi Internet access in both cabins and public rooms.

  • Caledonian Sky (the former Renaissance VI and Hebridean Spirit), which was acquired in 2011 and is a sister ship to Island Sky.

Noble Caledonia bills itself as a company whose trips are "educational, enjoyable, and above all, different." (Not all of Noble Caledonia's trips are on its own ships; many cruises on its Web site are aboard other companies' vessels.)
