Great Support

Georgie was excellent in looking into what we asked and at keeping us informed.

Cannot get downloads that require completion. Requested help but nothing

21 Jun 2018

Would like hard copies of everything instead of by email because cannot get or complete important downloads. These forms are required to fill in passport details/visa requests/concerning wi-fi/lg into Cruise Personaliser. I hope you can help.

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.

Black Watch

Launched: January 2009 | Occupancy: 804 passengers
