Thanks to a very helpful employee of ROL

20 Oct 2018

I was called initially to cancel a holiday booked for Nov. 2019 which was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were going to Myanmar which had long been a dream for us. On hearing our disappointment, Shannon Crick, who called us pulled out all the stops to find an alternative which she did. We were unable to have the same dates, but are very pleased to be going. Not so happy about additional costs, but we have accepted this. Well done to Shannon

Professional and friendly the perfect mix

Overview


A host of the Low Countries’ highlights will be unveiled as Black Watch takes you on a relaxing journey inland to four stunning cities via picturesque waterways. You’ll take in diverse scenery from on board your smaller-sized ship; while ashore, fantastic museums, architectural wonders and historic sights galore are yours to uncover. Every moment of this week away will be wonderfully rewarding. Southampton is the ideal departure port for your cruise to Belgium and the Netherlands; just a short time after setting sail, you’ll be cruising the Nordzeekanaal straight into Amsterdam, your first port of call. Black Watch will dock overnight close to the heart of the Dutch capital, affording you an opportunity to experience an authentic, in-depth exploration. Perhaps take a boat tour of the city’s iconic canals in the evening; then the following day, visit world-renowned museums such as the Van Gogh museum, immerse yourself in the fascinating history of Anne Frank House, and see the majestic mansions of the Canal Ring. Then it’s on to Rotterdam, for a futuristic twist to your itinerary. The Netherlands’ stylish second city boasts a collection of fantastic museums and an array of unique architectural wonders, from the innovative 1970s Cube Houses to the magnificently modern Markthal. Take the day to explore Rotterdam at leisure, before marvelling at the impressive Erasmusbrug Bridge and the city’s striking skyline as you depart via Nieuwe Maas in the evening. Your three days in Belgium will be packed with delights too. Spending a day in Ghent offers you the opportunity to see many of the Low Countries’ most famous landmarks, including the gothic-style St Bavo’s Cathedral, the Castle of the Counts and the UNESCO-listed, 91-metre-high Belfry – the tallest in Belgium. Take in the sights of this medieval city on foot or via the tram perhaps; or you could opt to experience another magical canal boat tour. You’ll also visit Antwerp after cruising the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal. An overnight stay in Belgium’s beautiful second city affords you time to explore at your own leisurely pace. You can see the intricate guildhouses of Grote Markt and the mighty Cathedral of our Lady; visit the Royal Museum of Fine Arts; and satisfy your sweet tooth with tempting treats from traditional chocolate shops. Be sure to legendary diamond district to uncover some Antwerp most prized possessions too.

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.
