Overview


If you want to experience a cruise with a difference or simply can’t decide where to go next with Fred. Olsen, look no further than this unmissable mystery cruise aboard Black Watch. A sense of excitement, intrigue and anticipation will build from the moment you board your smaller, more intimate cruise ship in Liverpool, from where you and hundreds – not thousands – of like-minded fellow guests will sail to well, who knows? The destinations on this unique nine night itinerary will be kept a secret until the last possible moment, with your Captain keeping you guessing until you arrive in each port of call. There’s a chance you’ll take in a place you’ve always wanted to visit; a collection of undiscovered gems; or perhaps a few of Fred. Olsen’s old favourites, destinations you know and love to visit time and again. Although you won’t know where you’re going when you set sail, you can board Black Watch in confidence knowing you’ll enjoy the same sumptuous cuisine, excellent entertainment and friendly, personal and attentive service offered on any other Fred. Olsen cruise. And as usual, we’ll take care of everything for you on this incredible voyage, so all you have do is relax and make the most of your time away from it all.

The Ship


Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And our Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you. Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with our service: “they consistently went the extra mile”. So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.
