Facilities & amenities

Swimming Pools & Jacuzzis

There are four heated swimming pools to choose from on board Black Watch, so you’ll always find somewhere to cool down after topping-up your tan on deck or keep in shape with a few early morning lengths.

The Marquee Pool on Marquee Deck 9 is perfect for a quick dip after soaking up the sunshine and also features two bubbling Jacuzzis; while the large swimming pool located at the stern of the ship on Lounge Deck 6 is ideal for working-off those delicious indulgences from the night before. There are two smaller exercise pools on Lounge Deck 6 too, suitable for water-based exercises such as aqua aerobics.

Sun Deck, Golf Nets & Tennis Court

Head to Sun Deck 10 to enjoy the most spectacular ocean vistas and bathe in the unbroken sunshine, or hone your skills and perfect your technique in the golf nets. Drive, chip and putt to your hearts content, taking in ever-changing scenery and incredible sights that your local golf course back home simply can’t match!

Black Watch also features a tennis court on Sun Deck 10, so don’t forget to pack your racquet when preparing for your cruise! Playing a casual set or two is a great way to keep fit, or you could play competitively against your friends and decide who buys the next round at the bar.

Card Room

If you’ve somehow had enough of relaxing by the pool in the sunshine or exploring ashore, the Card Room is a great escape from it all. The room – located on Lido Deck 7 – is specially set-up with plenty of card tables and comfy chairs for you to enjoy a competitive game or simply just a bit of fun.

Relax with a casual board game, or test your skills against your fellow guests with classic card games such a bridge. The Card Room is always a popular retreat, so you’re sure to always find a friendly opponent to challenge.

Gaming Tables

If you’re feeling lucky whilst on board Black Watch you could try your hand at the Blackjack Table or Roulette Wheel located just off the Lido Lounge on Lido Deck 7. Experience the thrill of staking it all against our friendly and experienced croupiers after your delicious dinner and drinks; or perhaps stand back and watch, enjoying all the excitement but without the risk!

Shops & Boutiques

Everything you could possibly need during your cruise and much more is available in the shops and boutiques on Main Deck 5 at great value prices.

Perhaps treat yourself to a new handbag or necklace, or a watch from world-renowned brands such as Citizen, Rotary, DKNY and Anne Klein; find a new outfit to wear at dinner or ashore; pick up duty-free designer fragrances; and top-up your all-important travel essentials including sun cream, toiletries and medication.

Laundry Room

If you need your tuxedo or dress perfectly prepared for formal night, or even just an outfit washed for some time ashore, our excellent laundry and dry cleaning service can take care of it for you.

However if you prefer to do your own laundry whilst on board Black Watch you can do so in the Laundry Rooms on Main Deck 5 and Atlantic Deck 4. The Laundry Rooms are self-service and equipped with everything you need, including washing machines, tumble dryers and irons.

Medical Centre

While we hope you won’t require medical assistance during your cruise on board Black Watch, the ship’s Medical Centre is ready to offer primary care whenever required, with a doctor and/or nurse ready to respond to any medical emergency. This means that you can relax and enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge that we’re always on hand to assist when needed.
