17 Jan 2019

As usual the staff at ROL listen, react and deal with any query that you have. They are fast and efficient, pleasant in manner, and they care about the customer. Every different person dealt with over many years has been the same. As a Company ROL obviously train their staff well, are particular about the people that they employ, and look after their Staff in such a manner that they, the Staff, are more than happy in going the extra mile to ensure that ROL remain at the top of the game. Particular mention, on this occasion, must go to melody for her assistance. What a star!

I will hopefully continue to book with ROL & advise others to do the same

17 Jan 2019

I have always found the people I have spoken to helpful & efficient Immediate response to my booking is always useful I have occasionally tried contacting cruise lines - not helpful / friendly or successful

Worth using

My booking was made so easy thanks to Katie.

Friendly, knowledgeable advice about the ship and very efficient booking

17 Jan 2019

Didn’t have to wait long to speak to an agent who was friendly, gave set helpful advice and made the whole booking process easy and efficient. Met ROL Reid first last tour on a South Africa cruise who were genuinely friendly and explained the benefits. First time we’ve used you to book will do again. Thanks to Katie who dealt with me.

calm flowing waters

Member of staff introduced herself and told me I can get back to her for any queries. She answered the questions I had and told me rest of the info she had to pass on. For me this is a holiday of a lifetime but she steered me through all the important stuff calmly.

Excellent 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.
