Firstly I have to say that our cruise itenary to Ireland and Canada was excellant. However having traveled with Fred Olsen on many occasions and had no serious problems, it was very disappointing to find that once we set sail there was a very noticeable vibration in our cabin, 4078, which made sleep very difficult. Reception admitted that there was a problem and eventually moved us to a forward cabin where we could sleep. However the vibration continued and was noticable throughout areas of the ship for the duration of the cruise. Also over the last couple of years the food quality and variety on Fred Olsen ships does seem to have declined from what used to have been some of the best at sea, especially the fish. As usual the crew were excellent and the entertainment and lecturers were of a good standard. We would cruise on Fred Olsen again but probably not on Black Watch. Read Less
