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

17 Jan 2019

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.

GREAT SERVICE

16 Jan 2019

Speedy reply to my call, knowledgabe approachable agent who listened to my request and was able to help immediately. When he put me on hold in order to speak to the cruise line, rather than keep me listening to the awful music he said that he would call me back which he did in a very short space of time.

This must be the best

16 Jan 2019

Had not used ROL previously, but quite impressed with the initial contact and the follow up. No pressure sales, just the facts and they were quick in obtaining all the relevant information to enable us to make a decision. All paperwork arrived initially by email within 30 minutes, all correct. Staff were helpful, informative and polite, excellent service.

Swift telephone response

16 Jan 2019

Answered telephone without very long wait. Helpful. Rang back when they said they would. Answered questions straight away without demanding name and endless details first, eg "how much for a single" got an answer without providing name, DOB, email etc etc which other operators do.

As I have said a pleasant phone call with your colleague

16 Jan 2019

Arlene spent some very useful time finding out and answering cabin detail queries on the Marco Polo for me and giving me comprehensive details of the organisation of the holiday. She made the booking a very pleasant activity.

    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!

  • Day 6


    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.
