Facilities on Black Watch
We want to offer you the very best experience we can on your cruise, so we've put a few details together below to help make your stay more comfortable.
Keep up to date with current news and sporting events or even share your holiday adventures and photos with friends and family back home. Both are possible by visiting our fully equipped Internet Centre, where our guests are able to browse the internet and e-mail is available via web-based e-mail accounts.
Many of our guests like to leave behind their everyday chores - and who could blame them? Of course there is a comprehensive laundry service which your cabin staff will be pleased to arrange for you.
However, we appreciate that occasionally there may be items you wish to deal with yourself, especially during a longer cruise, and the self-service launderette is equipped with washing machines, tumble dryers and ironing facilities.
You can relax totally on a Fred. Olsen cruise knowing that your every need is being taken care of. We hope that you never need to visit the Medical Centre, but be reassured that any ailments you may have can be assessed by our medical staff.
Our Medical Centre offers primary care with a doctor and/or nurse on permanent call if the requirement should arise during your time on board.
Here our dedicated Guest Services Team are on hand to help with any enquiries; whether it’s changing currency, requesting a bath robe or helping with your holiday arrangements.
