Cruise to Nowhere
Enjoy two relaxing nights on board Black Watch as she sails from Liverpool to Southampton. This short escape is the perfect ‘taster cruise’ for first time Fred. Olsen guests, as well as regular cruisers looking for a relaxing break away from it all.
Although there are no exotic destinations on your itinerary, having time to enjoy all of the benefits of cruising on board a smaller, more intimate Fred. Olsen ship will ensure this short escape is a relaxing and rewarding experience from the moment you step aboard. In the daytime you could catch a 3D film in the Marina Theatre, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, enjoy the views from the Observatory Lounge over a traditional afternoon tea, or perhaps treat yourself to a soothing treatment in the Atlantis Spa. In the evenings, indulge with delicious five course dinners prepared and cooked to perfection by our expert chefs, catch a range of fantastic entertainment, then retire to the ample space of your room or suite for a comfortable night’s sleep.
No matter how you choose to make the most of your time on board, you’ll share the same experience with your friends, family and fellow guests that you would on any other Fred. Olsen sailing. And, as usual, the friendly staff will be on hand to care of everything and provide personal, attentive service throughout your cruise.
Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.

About Your Ship
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.
The Fred. Olsen Difference
We’re not interested in gimmicks like zip wires, climbing walls or celebrity chefs. 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.
