Black Watch in Yalta
Entered Service 1972 - 28,492 tons
Not in the Saga class but good value for
money all the same. The staff are pretty good and (on the Cruise we
went on) the passengers were very friendly. Unlike P & O and Cunard
there are not continuous P. A. announcements advising you of the activities
that were available (the ones that cost extra, anyway). A definite plus.
Another definite plus is that smokers are NOT well catered for. In fact,
Fred Olsen are going down the route of no-smoking ships. Some of the
smokers were of the opinion that this will lose Fred Olsen a lot of
business. I don't think so!
