Yes. You won't need to pack a tuxedo, but people do dress for dinner, with many men wearing a jacket, although ties aren't necessary. There are also welcome and farewell receptions on each voyage, when passengers make more effort, but nothing formal is enforced.

No. All meals are included, as well as excursions as detailed in the itinerary and transfers from Inverness. Bicycles are available for use free of charge, and the ships carry kayaks for use on Loch Ness. 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?
