A taste of the holiday...

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.

Evenings aboard the Black Watch

After each relaxing day on board the Black Watch, a wonderful evening lies before you. Indulge in a delicious five-course dinner, prepared and cooked to perfection by our expert chefs, before catching a range of fantastic entertainment in one of the ship's charming bars and lounges.

Afterwards, you can retire to the ample space of your room or suite for a comfortable and serene night’s sleep.

No matter how you choose to make the most of your time on board the Black Watch, 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.
