Black Watch

Black Watch

To board Black Watch is to sense at once a classic pedigree that harks back to cruising values of a bygone age. She is truly a world-class cruise ship where you will feel a warm sense of welcome from the very first moment you step aboard. Large windows and the soft tones of a subtle, stylishly elegant décor, broad teak decks, generous promenades, bright and unconfined public areas and roomy cabins (over 90% of them offering sea view) – these all contribute to the spontaneous feeling of freedom and comfort that lies at the heart of the time-honoured Fred. Olsen cruising concept.
