This will be my third time on Black Watch, though I've not been on her for several years so it will be interesting to see the changes that have been made. Of the two, so far, I have preferred Boudicca.

She is a lovely-looking ship and great ship to sail in, with a fantastically friendly crew (though I do have some reservations about the "balconies" they recently added on the promenade deck). She is my favourite in Fred's fleet. I am booked to spend another month aboard her next April. Enjoy your cruise

Go @Clive...which cruise ?
Clive Harvey on Jul 25, 2018 17:14 (1 year ago)
Lucky me, I shall be on her in a little over a months time.

Thank you Volker. She was a fine sight at Liverpool Pier Head.
