Will an aging but upscale cruise ship sometimes used by British royals be the setting for a wedding between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?
That's the latest twist among the ever-flying rumors over impending nuptial plans for the celebrity couple.
The UK's Sun today reports that Brad and Angelina have been looking into the option of what surely would be a coup for the battered cruise industry: A wedding on the 49-passenger Hebridean Princess.
Built nearly 50 years ago as a car ferry and later converted into a small luxury cruise ship, the UK-based Hebridean Princess is far from the snazziest vessel around. But it has a loyal following, including Queen Elizabeth II, who has chartered the vessel twicein the last decade for vacations with her extended family.
With a crew of 38, the Hebridean Princess boasts one of the highest crew-to-passenger ratios in the cruise business. Operated by Hebridean Island Cruises, it normally sails around the British Isles with a focus on Scotland. .
