Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2016
Cabin: Superior Outside Cab

This was our third cruise on Black Watch and we were a little concerned that standards had deteriorated, following a few mediocre reviews - not so.

The standards of service and quality of food were outstanding.

It is an old ship and a number of minor issues arose during the cruise, which were dealt with rapidly and professionally by Guest Services.

Superior Outside Cab

Cabin B

An outside cabin is best and ours was quite satisfactory

Port Reviews


We are active and adventurous and arranged all our own excursions, generally accompanied by other guests. Those arranged by Black Watch are undoubtedly well organised but in largish groups and a little pricey.
