See a VIP (or three)
One of pop’s greatest vocalists, Tony Hadley, will perform live and comedian and TV star Joe Pasquale is the man to go and see for a side-splitting stand-up set. If you head to The Limelight Club, you could catch a cabaret set from revered singer and performer La Voix, whilst the sea-shanty-singing fishermen Sea Hear are also on board with their catchy tunes that you will be humming along to for the rest of the day.

Witness Iona’s glittering homecoming
One of the most unforgettable parts of Iona’s maiden cruise will surely be her homecoming celebration. At lunchtime on day three of the holiday, she’ll drop anchor just off the coast of her namesake island and the festivities will truly begin. Themed activities and entertainment will run throughout the afternoon and evening, and you can expect exciting performances from VIP guests. Finally, as a fitting end to this momentous day for the history and the future of cruising, the darkened sky will come alive in a dazzling fireworks display – just for the locals, crew and guests of the two Ionas. And, after the last flash of colour, you might choose to stay out on deck or your balcony to admire the beautiful Hebrides sky – a renowned spot for stargazing.
