Good service

Good comunication from the sales team keeping me up to date on my flight and times from Birmingham and booking me in to the airport Hotel

First booking

21 Sep 2018

My first booking with ROL. My call was answered quickly and in a friendly manner. However, when I asked about whether there would be choices for dinner on the ship booked for the expedition voyage (not my experience on previous voyages with Hurtigruten), I was told that there would be. I have since rung Hurtigruten who say that most dinners will be set menus, so they will need to be informed about any specific food needs by ROL. I have now informed ROL. I trust they will pass it on. It's best for staff to admit they don't know the answer to a question, but will find out, rather than misinform customers, no matter how well-intentioned. A payment receipt was sent immediately, but I was warned that it might take up to 14 days to received my booking confirmation documents, which is fair enough, but I've not experienced such delays with other companies. There was no mention of the size of the deposit required (30%) until I was asked for payment. It would have been useful to have this information in the brochure, as it is considerably bigger than I have been used to with other companies. Update 21 Sept: ROL rang me about the points made above - all sorted out now, and I do appreciate the fast response; it shows that they do value customers.

I was dealt with by a young lady, called emily, who quickly booked our holi

The service was very good. I never give top marks as there is always room for improvement.

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
