Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And the Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you. Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with the service: “they consistently went the extra mile”.
