Black Watch Cruise Review by chunkymonkeymargaret

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords
  • Cabin Type: Outside Cabin

As a 51 year old travel agent, i have been on many different cruise lines and the thought of travelling to the norwegian fjords on the back watch in september filled me with dread - how wrong was i !!!

Surprisingly there was a very mixed age group on board, yes a lot of older guest's yet many my own age and younger.

We were in an outside cabin on deck 2, the cabin had 2 portholes but yet seemed to remain quite dark. Drawers resembled a filing cabinet - yes a refurb would be appreciated.

Ship was a great size, very easy to get around.

Plenty to keep you occupied, lots of activies to participate in, if you wanted too. Not too sure of some of the new dance hosts - didnt think they mingled enough with the guests.

The food was excellent, entertainment pretty good too.

Staff were wonderful - pleasant and very hard working.

Luckily we had great weather in norway, the scenery blew me away !

Would i go again with fred olsen - yes i would !

Cabin Review

Outside Cabin
Cabin D 2???

Size was fine - plenty of space to store luggage under the bed.

FRED OLSEN TAKE NOTE - YOU DONT NEED TO PUT THE DECORATIVE COVER ON THE BED EACH DAY - ITS DATED - I'M SURE GUESTS WOULD BE HAPPY WITH JUST THE DUVET
