Knowledgeable

19 Apr 2019

Very knowledgeable and helpful - Lee was able to help us make decisions about cabin, dinner time etc. We have booked a cruise that we're looking forward to this July so as Lee had all our details we didn't need to repeat our names, dob, address etc. Small things, but they made the booking very easy.

    Cobh (for Cork), Ireland

    04 Sep 2019

    The charming port of Cobh at the mouth of the River Lee is the gateway to Cork, Ireland's second city. Founded by Norse raiders in 917, Cork has today expanded beyond its original island confines across numerous bridges - but amid the city's winding hillside streets and lanes something of an old world still lingers. From here you can visit the ruins of Blarney castle to kiss the famous Blarney Stone!

The Ship


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. Show less Having undergone a thorough refurbishment in late 2016, Black Watch features a selection of stylish suites and rooms, restaurants and spacious public rooms 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 extravanganza of music, dance, comedy and selection of drinks including premium gin; inviting open deck spaces; and a teak-lined promenade. What's more, smart TVs, mini-bars and an upgraded 4K, 3D cinema, mean Black Watch is better equipped for future adventures than ever before.
