Fred Olsen operate a number of classic ships but the first to mind is always the Black Watch. We cruised on it many years ago as guests to talk about our work on the UK TV soaps and had a great time. It is a small very friendly ship. Since we were on it, it has been refurbished. See the 2016 re-fit film in stop frame, very interesting. Then there is the post refurbished film here. This is a look at the Glentanar Restaurant.
One of our most memorable cruise moments ever of any ship was the star gazing done on the Black Watch with the captain in the middle of the pacific when all the lights were turned off. It was like the sky suddenly lit up. We sailed across to Tahiti and left the ship there. We have since been back there on the Arcadia.CHAT and share your love of small ships, and answer other peoples questions. Join the Fred Olsen Cruise Chat Facebook Group
