Triton Cape Sea Travel
She may have started her life sailing as a Scandinavian luxury cruise liner for Royal Viking Line, but today MS Black Watch couldn’t be more British than tea and crumpets, fish and chips and the Queen. It is this extreme British-ness that passengers will find throughout the ship, from its cuisine to its activities. Like its sister ship, MS Braemar, MS Black Watch enjoys a high percentage of repeat clientele.
Relax in style on MS Black Watch with her Atlantis Spa and Salon with separate treatment rooms, a beauty salon, fitness centre and steam and sauna facilities, or burn off those ship buffet calories in the pool on the Lounge Deck or the tiled pool on the Marquee Deck. There’s also a library, card room, sun deck, golf and tennis nets on board, as well as the popular Braemar Lounge offering both an enjoyable relaxation area and a courtyard opening into the Braemar Garden Café. Passengers have access to the supper-club-style Neptune Lounge with stage and dance floor, the wood-panelled Explorer’s Library with one of the largest library collections at sea, the Lido Lounge, popular after dinner for late night cocktails, Karaoke and dancing, and the Marina Theatre offering late night movies. There’s also an on-board and self-service laundry service and facility and for those annoying trips to the doctor, an onboard medical centre with qualified medical staff. The ship facilities generally do not cater to children as most of the passengers are older, although there are children’s programmes, including cookie and pizza making activities, on board should you be sailing during school holidays.
