Black Watch image
The Black Watch is a mini ship that can carry 800 passengers and it is lovelier than the usual cruise with thousands of people on board. With my previous maiden experience in this vessel from Dubai to Southampton few years back, I have decided to renew my relation with her.

We were on wheels to Dover to cover the 110 miles by the M20. The porters were handy to us in handling our single piece luggage till the check in area. Gold members were given priority. As the sea was kind without any roughness, it was an easy task to locate the cabins. The L shaped configuration, the cabin had a huge space with two portholes and one solid bed.

The only difference I could make in this Black Watch was the addition of the ‘Courtyard’ which has curtailed my viewing pleasure from the one I had in my earlier trip. The food at the Glentara Restaurant was delicious and the ever attentive staffs have added an extra flavor. Big appetites always served with a second portion.

The very first night entertainment was memorable with high performed singers and dancers. The small vessel was really rocking with the orderly noise. The other two nights were filled with comedy and magic activities which I have skipped to enjoy a fabulous duo at the Lido Bar.

Diesel fumes or the sewerage was the only point of criticism as I had felt. But they never form detraction to the rich experience of sailing.
