Much prefer Boudicca and Black Watch to Braemar and Balmoral. :cry:

Not sure what I think. Fred's ships are gradually getting bigger.

I agree completely! :thumbup: We've enjoyed all of the Fred Olsen ships (since 2004 that is) and would rate Black Watch and Boudicca as comfortable favourites. They're older than Braemar and Balmoral of course, but have far more character.

It would appear that FO is following TUI's approach by acquiring smallish ships that have a touch of class and lots of balconies.

Couldn't agree more :cry:

Don't suppose anyone has won the Euromillions recently...
