Hi David. Fred Olsen ships have good reputation and are reckoned great value for money among Europeans, particularly Brits. I sailed on the Black Watch last summer on trip from Dover through Baltic to St Petersburg return.
Have sampled a number of lines in recent years, including Orient`s Crown Odyssey in the Bombay to Singapore, in Jan 2001, and P&O`s Victoria, in Jan 2002, from Caribbean through Pan Canal to Acapulco.
Predict you will find the Black Watch as good as most and better than many.
Incidentally, she is named after the Black Watch, one of the famous regiments in the British Army and some of her lounges are furnished in tartan.
