Black Watch Review
About This Ship
Pros and Cons
Pros: reliable friendly service feels personal and warm; Atlantis spa treatments can be pre-booked online or by phone up to 12 months in advance; the ship is family-friendly, with a children’s room and arcade.
Cons: lifeboats and life rafts may obscure views from all cabin balconies on decks 8 and 9; sole occupancy of a cabin with two or more beds is subject to availability at time of booking; British passengers will find they need plug adapters—voltage on Black Watch is 110 volts (U.S.-style two-pin plugs) as well as 220 volts (requiring a Continental-style two-pin plug).
