Fred. Olsen to Launch Rosyth Season

Fred. Olsen Cruise Line announced that the Black Watch will begin its new season August 14 with a seven-night “Lochs of Scotland” voyage.

Fred. Olsen will offer eight cruises from Rosyth (Edinburgh) aboard the ship through October 14.

Other itineraries include a seven-night “Scenic Fjords of Norway” cruise, a 10-night “Cultural Cities of Northern Europe” trip, and a 16-night “Landscapes of Portugal & the Canaries” tour.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Services at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Black Watch’s forthcoming cruise season from Rosyth builds upon Fred. Olsen’s already-close relationship with this convenient, regional Scottish port.

“It is rewarding to see that cruising with Fred. Olsen is now well-established as the ‘holiday of choice’ in the minds of so many local people, as well as attracting guests from further afield on our more adventurous itineraries, such as our 13-night ‘Greenland, Iceland & Norway Exploration’ in August. 

“The Port of Rosyth is quite unlike anywhere else that we visit in the world, boasting spectacular scenery and three iconic bridges, and Black Watch’s guests will be amongst the first to sail under the new Queensferry Bridge, which will be opened officially by Her Majesty The Queen this September.” 

“We are looking forward to the Fred. Olsen cruise season starting at the Port of Rosyth in August,” said Robert Mason, Head of Cruise at Rosyth.

“Rosyth is fast becoming Scotland’s key port to cruise from, with some amazing destinations on offer. It’s so easy to arrive at the Port, board a cruise liner and quickly be on your vacation.”

Next year, Fred. Olsen will introduce its 1,350-guest flagship, the Balmoral, to Edinburgh. It will feature nine itineraries from May to July.
