Black Watch is beautiful, and a real 'ship' often described as a Country House Hotel. She's not new but she's well maintained, stable and spotless. Comfortable, good sized and well looked after cabins. Restaurant ambience, food and service of a very high standard.

Baltic Ports were a very pleasant surprise, Talin in particular. Well worth just getting off and walking or using 'City Tour' buses in areas such as Stockholm. Don't tell too many people about the golf driving range and it won't get too crowded. Dover must be amongst the most user friendly and efficient Ports in the World.

Embarkation was smooth and on return ship to car couldn't have been ten minutes. Very difficult to fault anything or anyone from either the ship or the ship's Company from the Master (a superb ship handler) through to ultra friendly and highly efficient staff.

Overall a good 4 star plus. Full praise to everyone at Fred Olsen and if they made her a no smoking ship, I'd rate her at 5 star.

We're off this year through Panama in RCI's Serenade of the Seas but we'll return to the Black Watch sometime in the future.
