All seemed very good during booking, but I have only paid a deposit so far, lets wait and see if the cruise is as good as expected

Pleasant, friendly, intelligent co-operation with the enquiring traveller

25 Mar 2019

We use ROL now extensively for our cruise bookings, not only because of the reasonable prices, but because I can speak to a person who is prepared to listen what I want rather than impose the "standard position". On this booking, Jasmin was helpful, did what I needed & volunteered information

Very good service

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.
