This unparalleled voyage to paradise provides the perfect escape from the January cold and gloom, offering plenty of classic Caribbean highlights and experiences. Visits to a collection of beautiful islands afford opportunities to sample authentic flavours and cultures, encounter incredible wildlife, explore stunning landscapes and, in true Caribbean style, indulge in pure relaxation too.

Following two days at sea to settle into life on board Black Watch and a chance to revel in the famous port wines and riverscapes of Oporto, three gorgeous Atlantic Ocean islands will whet your appetite for your Caribbean discovery. [ReadMoreMob]Enjoy time to explore Madeira, Portugal’s gorgeous ‘garden island’ with it’s unique levada walking trails and tropical gardens, bursting with the sweet fragrance and vibrant colours of various species of flora. You could head to the magnificent Cabo Girão sea cliff for unspoilt ocean views too. Meanwhile, there’ll be plentiful amounts of diverse scenery – and soothing winter sunshine – to soak up in the Canary Islands. Mount Teide can be seen in all its towering glory in Tenerife, perhaps on an exciting cable car tour from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, while the mysterious stepped structures and poison gardens of the Pyramids of Güímar are an arresting sight. La Palma will also beg for your exploration from Santa Cruz de La Palma: the Canaries’ ‘pretty island’ is a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve of untouched forests and volcanic landscapes. Verdant Los Tilos and the dramatic San Antonio Volcanic Park are particular highlights. [ReadMoreDesk]

Having finally crossed the Atlantic – one of the great ocean cruise experiences – the Caribbean adventures begin in Barbados. Arriving in Bridgetown, there’ll be time to uncover the very best of this British-influenced island. Perhaps sample the typically Caribbean, laidback lifestyle in the colourful city centre; or opt for tours to see the impressive stalactites and stalagmites of Harrison’s Cave, explore the exotic Hunte’s Garden, or go in search of sea turtles on a catamaran cruise. Antigua, famed for its 365 sun-soaked beaches and interesting historic sites, is the perfect place to enjoy yet another day of relaxation and exploration, before your island-hopping continues in Tortola. Road Town is the starting point for delving into Tortola’s fascinating pirate history on a memorable scenic boat and safari bus tour; and is also home to the world-famous Pussers Bar, serving up authentic Caribbean rum and friendly vibes. A call at Grand Turk follows, for one final chance to make the most of the Caribbean sunshine on white-sand beaches, take a refreshing dip in the island’s warm, crystal-clear waters, or even snorkel tropical reefs, before you disembark in Havana, Cuba.

Black Watch is the ultimate home-from-home at sea: spacious with a friendly, familiar feel and providing a traditional cruise experience. Refurbished at the end of 2016, the 804-guest Black Watch features stylish new décor, fittings and furniture, plus the new Black Watch Room restaurant.

What's more, new soft furnishing, smart TVs and mini-bars enhance the accommodation on board, while the cinema has been upgraded too. Despite all these new features, Black Watch still retains her sleek, intimate style and has a welcoming ambience - just like the rest of the Fred. Olsen fleet.

Real ships
We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel.  We ensure they remain contemporary too: from winter 2016 to spring 2018 the whole fleet underwent dry dock refits to further enhance the facilities for guests. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman and 170 years of seafaring heritage behind us, we believe we’ve found the perfect formula for you to get the best out of your holiday with us.

Smaller but spacious
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space; far from it. Each room is comfortably sized, with all that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday. In fact, our rooms are comparable to those on some of the mammoth cruise ships. While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space.  With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Service with a smile
Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday: in guest feedback our staff are always the most highly-rated aspect of the whole experience.
