Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer two Transatlantic voyages on board ms Black Watch in May and June 2015, each from £1,199.

As there is no longer any cargo-passenger service between Canada and Europe, those who cannot get space anywhere else will benefit the Transatlantic crossings between Montreal and Liverpool this spring.

The 804-berth 28,613-ton Black Watch first cruised St Lawrence waters as ms Royal Viking Star. Royal Viking Line, her original owners, were one of the early modern lines to serve this area, so the ship will be returning to an old home.

The schedules are as follows:

  • 14 nights Merseyside to Montreal (from Liverpool), departing on May 22, visiting Ponta Delgada, Azores (May 26); Sydney, Nova Scotia (May 31); Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island (June 1); Gaspe, Quebec (June 2); Trois Rivieres, Quebec (June 4); in Montreal on June 5.
  • 14 nights Canadas Untouched Eastern Seaboard (from Montreal to Liverpool), departing on June 5, visiting Quebec City (June 6-7); Saguenay, Quebec (June 8); Havre St Pierre, Quebec (June 10); Corner Brook, Newfoundland (June 11); St Johns, Newfoundland (June 13); in Liverpool on June 19.
