A spacious, airy ship with large cabins and suites
Originally designed for world cruises, Black Watch has a spacious, airy feel with large cabins and suites, yet her size makes it easy for you to find your way around.
With a choice of three restaurants you can dine where the mood takes you and look forward to delicious afternoon teas on board too.
Drinks are in line with typical UK pub prices, so you can afford to let your hair down without worrying about costs mounting up, and of course all on-board entertainment is included in the price too.
During the day and night you'll find plenty to keep you entertained, from quizzes and pilates classes to art and craft sessions and lectures from guest speakers.
Perhaps watch a film in the cinema, indulge yourself with a pampering treatment in the health and beauty salon or challenge someone to a game of cards – or a tennis match if you're feeling more energetic!
Then of course there's the nightly performances from a host of comedians, musicians and more… it all adds up to a great time!

A Note about cabin numbers
At the time of booking your cruise you will be given a cabin number for the duration of your stay on-board. Whilst every possible effort is given to ensure you will be accommodated in this cabin, we reserve the right to advise a change to this cabin number when you receive your final tickets. In the event of a cabin change we guarantee you will be accommodated in a stateroom that is equal to the grade of the cabin given at the time of booking, or a higher grade cabin to your original booking. If you choose not to accept your allocated cabin, this is treated as a cancellation.
