Just come back from Fred.Olsen cruise on the Black Watch to Iceland.
Very nice cruise and a nice ship. Bit old and needs constant maintenance due to her age but fine nonetheless.
The age range and market for this ship is British and around 50-75 years old.
Because she is a smaller ship, she can get into alot more ports than the other larger ships. I cruised on Oasis of the Seas last year and even though the differences are huge (pun intended) I felt more crowded on the Black Watch.
Passenger wise Black Watch was 800 and Oasis 6,200, but due to less to do and everyone in the same bar and public areas, it gets crowded fast.
So I and the wife have booked two cruises next year and both are on Anthem of the Seas. Unless Fred. Olsen is going somewhere that Royal Caribbean isn't then we won't sail with them again.
