Although there are no exotic destinations on your itinerary, having time to enjoy all of the benefits of cruising on board a smaller, friendlier Fred. Olsen ship will ensure this short escape is a relaxing and rewarding experience from the moment you step aboard. In the daytime you could catch a 3D film in the Marina Theatre, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, enjoy the views from the Observatory Lounge over a traditional afternoon tea, or perhaps treat yourself to a soothing treatment in the Atlantis Spa. In the evenings, indulge with delicious five course dinners prepared and cooked to perfection by our expert chefs, catch a range of fantastic entertainment, then retire to the ample space of your room or suite for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Black Watch is sleek, intimate and harks back to the days when cruise ships were revered for their style and charm. The ultimate home-from-home at sea; Black Watch is spacious with a friendly and familiar feel, and provides guests with a traditional cruise experience rather than gimmicks such as climbing walls and on board bumper cars. This is further enhanced by the ship's attentive staff who strive to offer Fred. Olsen's renowned personal service and remember the important things, such as your name, your favourite tipple and how you like your breakfast. Having undergone a thorough refurbishment in late 2016, Black Watch features a selection of stylish suites and rooms, restaurants and spacious public areas that provide up to 804 guests with everything needed for a comfortable, enjoyable and stress-free holiday, while retaining the elegant style of a traditional cruise ship. Black Watch has five dining venues, including the Glentanar Restaurant, the oriental-inspired Orchid Room and the new The Poolside; welcoming bars and lounges offering an extravaganza of music, dance, comedy and selection of drinks including premium gin; inviting open deck spaces; and a teak-lined promenade.
