Public rooms

Marquee Bar

The Marquee Bar – located towards the stern of the ship on Marquee Deck 9 – is the ideal place to take a break from relaxing in the sunshine next to the nearby pool. Find shade under the awning at the bar, where you could chat to your hearts content with the friendly staff; or perhaps grab a table with friends and watch the world sail by over a glass of your favourite tipple.

Enjoy a cold beer, a fruity wine, exotic cocktail or treat yourself to premium gins such as The Botanist Islay or Bols Jonge, perfectly complemented by Fevertree tonic water. Delicious light bites can be ordered at the Marquee Bar too – perfect if you’re peckish but don’t want to head inside and leave the sunshine behind.

Neptune Lounge

After dinner, Black Watch’s Neptune Lounge is the place to be for a wonderful evening of music, dance, comedy and colourful costumes. Settle into your comfortable seat alongside your friends and loved-ones and take in a range of entertainment from cabaret acts to stand-up comedians, and live performances from the Black Watch orchestra. You don’t even have to worry about getting up for a drink – simply relax and enjoy the show while our friendly waiters take care of everything for you.

Morning Light Pub

Decorated to resemble a British pub or inn but with a Scandinavian twist, the Morning Light Pub has a welcoming atmosphere and charming traditional style. Open throughout the day and the evening, it’s the ideal place to relax and socialise with friends both old and new.

You could enjoy a quick pint or a glass of wine at lunch before spending the afternoon ashore; stop by for a pre-dinner drink; or settle into a comfortable seat and relax long into the night while enjoying performances from live bands and comedians.

Lido Lounge

A popular after-dinner venue, the Lido Lounge – located towards the stern of the ship on Lido Deck 7 – is a great place to sit, relax and catch up with friends over a cold pint, an exotic cocktail, or even something light, refreshing and non-alcoholic; or to dance the night away to fantastic live music performed by the resident band and singers.

Braemar Lounge

Furnished with big, comfortable sofas and armchairs, the Braemar Lounge always feels homely and welcoming. Located on Lounge Deck 6 between the Morning Light Pub and the main Glentanar Restaurant, this spacious lounge is perfect for meeting up with friends before and after dinner, with a selection of drinks on offer at the elegant cocktail bar.

Bookmark Café

Located on Lido Deck 7, the Bookmark Café is an indulgent delight that’s not to be missed. You’ll find an assortment of delectable chocolates to devour here, from extravagant champagne truffles to melt-in-your-mouth caramel hearts, alongside a tempting menu of specialty hot drinks – choose from Taylors of Harrogate’s intense coffees and a selection of traditional teas such as earl grey and English breakfast.

Satisfy your sweet tooth and cater to your caffeine cravings in the most unforgettable way while cruising the world’s waterways aboard Black Watch.

Marina Theatre

If you’re looking to while away a couple of hours during a relaxing day at sea, or want to take in a late-night movie, head to the Marina Theatre – Black Watch’s cosy and comfortable cinema located on Marina Deck 3. There’s plenty of seating and showings often feature classic films and fascinating documentaries.

If booked in advance, the Marina Theatre can also be used for group meetings and get-togethers – perfect for planning some time ashore or an occasion on board.

Observatory Lounge

Located towards the bow of the ship on Marquee Deck 9 and boasting spectacular panoramic views, the Observatory Lounge is a wonderful place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Sit around the bar in the centre of the lounge, or perhaps take a seat by one of the large windows and lose yourself in the stunning sights while listening to the twinkling sounds of a grand piano.

The Observatory Lounge is also the venue for our premium Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which offers guests a selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones accompanied by premium teas and unforgettable views.


The teak-lined open promenades on Lido Deck 7 are ideal for starting your day with a relaxing stroll in the sea breeze, catching some sunshine on an afternoon meander, and enjoying romantic after-dinner strolls under moonlight – the pleasures of cruising on a smaller, traditional-style cruise ship.

There are often games of shuffleboard or deck quoits taking place on the Promenade too, which you’re always welcome to join. Just don’t forget to look up from time to time, as you never know what stunning sights are coming up on the horizon.
