Black Watch

OVERVIEW: Black Watchis a comfortable but not luxurious ship best suited to the older traveler who wants a British cruise environment, wearing relatively formal attire. Cruises are well organized, with interesting itineraries and free shuttle buses in many ports of call.

Boudicca

OVERVIEW: The ship appeals to British couples and single travelers seeking a sense of space, comfortable surroundings, decent facilities, realistic pricing, and good value for money, with British food and entertainment.
