Offering traditional cruising for the British market, Black Watch is a comfortable ship decorated in a modern style. Refurbished in late 2016, every cabin, suite and public area has been refreshed along with the addition of a new a la carte dining venue to complement the existing choices. Black Watch is best suited to the more mature traveller, with facilities to suit.
These include the two swimming pools and the Atlantis Spa and Salon, offering a number of beauty treatments and massages. Traditional cruise games such as quoits and shuffleboard are available, while in the evening there’s late night entertainment and a number of bars and lounges where you can enjoy a more relaxing drink.
From watching the sunrise over a hearty breakfast to winding down in the evening with an expertly prepared five-course meal, some of the most memorable experiences on any Black Watch cruise are enjoyed in the stylish and intimate dining venues on-board the ship. The main dining venues are Glentanar Restaurant, and the oriental-themed Orchid Room. For more casual dining, visit The Brigadoon for a delicious self-service buffet or The Poolside for fast food. For an extra special experience, book a table at The Black Watch Room to enjoy an a la carte evening meal prepared by expert chefs or The Poolside for a themed al fresco dinner. Room service and afternoon tea is also available. There are also plenty of bars and lounges available on-board Black Watch with a friendly and peaceful atmosphere. Choose from the Lido Lounge, Neptune Lounge, Observatory, Morning Light Pub, The Bookmark Café or the Marquee Bar.
Accommodation options on board Black Watch include interior cabins, cabins with portholes, cabins with picture windows or balconies and suites. For solo travellers, single cabins are available in all grades. Even the lowest-priced rooms feature climate control, and interactive smart TV, a fridge, hairdryer, desk, phone and tea and coffee making facilities.
Black Watch has lots of leisure activities to keep you busy all day long. Examples of the daily activities you’ll find include carpet bowls, table tennis, craft classes, deck quoits, bingo and dance classes. Take a dip in one of the two swimming pools or three Jacuzzis or soak up the sun on the loungers. Shop until you drop with jewellery, clothes and perfume on offer or, give yourself some quiet time to read a book in the library. You’ll also find fascinating lectures from a selection of guest speakers.
What better way than to spend a relaxing day than pampering yourself with a selection of treatments in the spa? You can choose from massage, facials or body wraps, all within comfortable surroundings. You’ll also find a fully-equipped fitness centre, table tennis and a teak-lined promenade which is perfect for a brisk stroll in the sunshine.
On peak holiday cruises, the Little Skipper´s Club provides a variety of entertainment and activities for children aged between 5 and 12 years old. These activities include arts and crafts, discos, treasure hunts and much more, and are run by Fred. Olsen’s friendly team of hosts and hostesses.
