Black Watch Bringing the world closer

Black Watch is sleek, intimate and harks back to the days when cruise ships were revered for their style and charm. Focusing on providing a traditional cruise experience rather than gimmicks such as climbing walls and on board bumper cars, Black Watch feels friendly and familiar. This is further enhanced by the attentive staff who strive to offer service with a smile and remember the important things, such as your name and favourite tipple and how your like your eggs cooked at breakfast.


Five main types of cabin are available – Suites, Balcony, Outside, Inside and Single – each with 24-hour room service. All rooms include an interactive TV, hair dryer, safe, wardrobe and drawer space.


Food & Drink

Two main dining rooms, a café and casual lunch or snack options are available onboard, with a choice of set dinner times or more informal ‘freedom dining.’ Choose between formal, intimate and relaxed surroundings, or special themed nights.
The main dining room is split into two with Glentanar Restaurant, as the larger dining room, and The Orchid Room, a smaller offshoot. Both offer open seating for breakfast and two seatings for lunch and dinner. Glentanar’s has panoramic windows with fine sea views and a large menu. The Orchid Room is an oriental designed, quieter and more intimate restaurant with gourmet meals.


Life on Board
