ROL certainly is a 5 star company

24 Mar 2019

Katie was so helpful and patient and made me feel special. She was extremely professional and we got there in the end after her having to make phone calls and I'm sure I'd provided her with a challenge. Fantastic service - my first impression of ROL wonderful. I'd heard from others that ROL was a great company to go with - they weren't wrong! I'd definitely recommend ROL to others. ROL certainly is a 5 star company.

Great service.

    Lerwick, Shetlands

    24 Jun 2019

    Sturdy little Lerwick is the friendly capital of the 100 islands and islets of the Shetland Islands, northernmost outpost of the British Isles (located almost halfway between Scotland and Norway, to which they once belonged) - and setting of ancient archaeological sites, intriguing Viking echoes and, in more contemporary vein, the renowned Shetland knitwear!

    Tórshavn, Faeroe Islands

    25 Jun 2019

    The capital of the Faeroes lies at the southern most tip of Streymoy - the largest of this archipelago of 18 islands. The nearest thing to a historic monument on these islands is perhaps the nearby settlement of Kirkjubour. This was once the seat of the Faeroese bishops, and the roofless cathedral has a plaque behind which is claimed to be a piece of the True Cross and cloth from the Virgin Mary's dress.

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.
