Helpful and friendly

13 Nov 2018

Spoke to Liam who was very helpful and not at all pushy (unlike a rival company I also got a quote from). Asked loads of questions on the first call as I hadn't cruised with CMV and didn't really know them, he knew his stuff, I then did a bit of research and called back to book. Called back a third time to add a drinks package, no problem.

Excellent friendly courteous and professional

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.
