Sail Date: Dec 2014
Cabin: Outside Cabin

We chose a mini cruise with Fred Olson to Brugge on Black Watch from Tilbury. Check-in is very different from Southampton you drive to the check in hall unload your luggage plenty of help available drive back to Tilbury dock leave your car in secure parking then catch a bus back to where you started. Check in was fast and easy we only waited a little while till embarkation which was at 2.15.we were soon on board and straight to our cabin.

The Ship is very easy to get around and well laid out, there was loads of room in the Public rooms we never felt crowded even at the shows.

The staff were friendly and not to pushie were drinks were concerned We only had time to go to the evening shows so did not join any of the other activities, the shows were good. .

Cabin Review

Outside Cabin

Cabin D

The cabin was clean, tidy not over large it had a tea/coffee tray plenty of wardrobe space. The shower was clean the mirror was one of the best that I have had on a ship, All in all the bathroom was O.K. There was a flat screen T.V. a dressing table lots of storage . The bed layout of two single one across the the bottom of the cabin and one on the side was a bit strange. The cabin was well looked after.
