On board experience

Sleek, intimate and stylish, Black Watch harks back to the days when cruise ships were revered for their elegance and charm, not their gimmicks such as climbing walls and bumper cars. On board, Black Watch feels warm, friendly and familiar; like a home-from-home in which to enjoy a more traditional, relaxing and care-free cruise experience.

Up to 804 guests can cruise aboard Black Watch through narrow fjords and canals, along winding rivers and across vast oceans to some of the world’s greatest destinations; making the most of the space and comfort on offer in sumptuous suites or cosy rooms and tastefully decorated public areas bathed in natural light. There are four dining options on board, including the grand Glentanar Restaurant and oriental-style Orchid Room; bars and lounges serving a selection of beers, wines and spirits and providing fantastic entertainment; and leisure facilities such as heated swimming pools, Jacuzzis, a Fitness Centre, Spa and much more – all of which can be enjoyed without ever feeling overcrowded or overwhelmed.

The unforgettable experience of sailing the world’s waterways on board Black Watch is further enhanced by the high level of personal, attentive service provided by our friendly staff, who strive to ensure your cruise with Fred. is memorable from beginning to end. They’ll address you by your name – not your room number – from the moment you step on board, cook your breakfast perfectly every morning, remember your favourite drink and take care of everything for you. All you have to do is simply relax and enjoy a rewarding cruise with your friends, family and like-minded fellow guests.
