Originally built as a world cruiser, Black Watch features a large number of balcony cabins and suites and accommodates 800 passengers in space and comfort. After a day in port, or enjoying some of the activities available on board, the focus of the evening is dinner, followed by live entertainment.

The Braemar Garden Café is the place for informal dining, as an alternative to the impressive main restaurant, Glentanar: great cuisine’s one of the highlights of our cruises. You’ll also want to try our new Grill restaurant, where for a small charge you can enjoy a very special dinner, dining al fresco. Every evening there are performances in the main Neptune Lounge, with a further show in the Lido Lounge, so your time on board is just as much fun as your time exploring ashore.

Dining on board

At Fred. Olsen, we know that dining on board is one of the experiences that makes your cruise so memorable. This is why our team of expert chefs painstakingly plan sumptuous menus of carefully prepared meals, designed to make your mouth water. Every day our menus are something special, with dishes varying from appetisers such as herb marinated salmon or crabmeat cocktail, to indulgent main courses like sirloin steak or pan seared snapper with scallops and fabulous desserts such as white chocolate parfait.

Health & Well-being

With all the delicious food served by our friendly waiters, it is really easy to indulge. For those who want to stay trim on board, there is a gym on every Fred. Olsen ship along with classes offering pilates, aerobics, yoga and other fitness activities. Whilst you’re on board, also take advantage of the Atlantis Spa and book a wonderfully calming massage, facial or manicure. Or relax by the pool and laze in the Jacuzzi as the ship cruises to your next port of call.
