The Fred Olsen Black Watch is an intimate, charming cruise ship which exudes style and substance. With room for 804 guests, it is one of the smaller cruise ships sailing the seven seas today – but, like with all Fred Olsen cruise ships, this merely means greater comfort, fabulous entertainment and excellent customer service comes as a given.
One of the unique amenities found aboard the Black Watch is the promenade: lined in traditional teak, this is the ideal place to remind you what ocean travel is all about.
With an internet centre and 24-hour reception, Black Watch ensures that there are answers for any question you might have – be it the name of that bird flying by, or what the best restaurants to visit in the next port town are.
Since the rise of the internet, constant communication has become a standard part of life, and a visit to the internet centre means you can quickly share snaps and statuses with your friends from wherever in the world you may be – certain to put the colour of envy into their eyes!
There’s no chance of feeling bored on board the Black Watch cruise ship, as it boasts the Marina Theatre as well as hosting cabaret, theatre and comedy acts in the Neptune Lounge.
Test your luck in the Games Room at the Roulette wheel, or take a daytime session to learn exactly what it takes to win big. The Card Room is a bright and carefree place to unwind with a pack of cards and a game of bridge, backgammon – or perhaps just an enthusiastic game of Snap!
Fantastic Fitness Options
For those of a more physical inclination, the Black Watch fitness suite has everything you need for a full blown work out: weights, rowing machines, dance lessons and an enthusiastic fitness instructor ensure that your fitness routine will only be ramped up while on board.
If all this sounds a bit too much for a restful, indulgent holiday, take time out for yourself by visiting the Atlantis Spa for a hot stone massage or invigorating facial.
The salon offers beauty treatments and hairdos – ideal for a little primping before heading out on a hot date with your other half. Alongside the fitness classes, yoga and aerobics lessons are offered in the fitness centre, perfect for returning you to yourself.

Bars and Lounges
Black Watch has several bars and lounges ideal for unwinding after a busy day of relaxing on deck.
From the Morning Light Pub, which boasts a unique décor of traditional British with a splash of Scandinavian, to the Observatory lounge – aptly named, this piano cocktail bar allows guests to view the gently heaving waves through their panoramic windows and to get a closer look through one of the many binoculars that are dotted throughout the room – having an apéritif or digestif has never felt so exotic.
Alongside these are the Lido Lounge – where the music calls you to dance the night away – and the Pool Bar, which is ideal for grabbing a cool beer or fruity cocktail while you lounge by the pool in the glimmering sunshine.
