easy to arrange, and a welcome change to actually speak to a human being instead of loads of press options

Professional and helpful service.

Hello, the travel consultant that I spoke to was very helpful in finding the cruise that I required at the right price and she was able to answer all of my questions with professional and helpful answers. Nothing was too much and the ease of booking was so simple.I hope that the cruise itself is as plain sailing. This is a trip of a lifetime for my 60th birthday, so my husband and I are really looking forward to it .

Your representative was very good answered all my questions professionally.

Quite simply I wanted to book a cruise and I phoned ROL and they deal with my request efficiently giving useful advice.

Excellent advice even though it was at 8pm at the end of a long, busy day.

We found a cruise to the Hidden Baltic that we were interested in but as it was advertised for 2020 we did not want to book so far in advance. It hadn't occurred to us that there would be the same tour going at Easter this year, but that is exactly what the salesperson suggested she would check. It was available and in the cabin grade that we wanted.Excellent advise

Well done. It is apleasure doing business with you

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.
