Do something memorable on 21st December 2019 and celebrate the start of the festive season ‘Fred. Olsen style’ in the company of friends or colleagues, loved ones and fellow guests with this very special Christmas-themed party night on board Black Watch.
While docked alongside in Southampton, you’ll be treated to an evening filled with fun, festivity and indulgence. You could begin your night at the bar and settle-in with a glass or two of your favourite pre-dinner tipple, before taking your seat at one of the ship’s stylish restaurants and enjoying a delectable, expertly-prepared five-course à la carte meal. Then the party will well and truly begin, with an exciting programme of entertainment on offer in Black Watch’s bars and lounges, including live cabaret and musical performances, a comedian and a late-night DJ, so you can dance the night long into the late hours.

When it is finally time to disembark and head for home, you’re sure to leave Black Watch full of festive cheer and with plenty of magical memories.

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 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.
