BLACK WATCH - December 2011

Mini Cruise to Rouen 14 - 17th Dec 2011
Southampton - Rouen [overnight] - Southampton

 
Aboard BLACK WATCH at Southampton - 14 Dec 2011
Dec 14, 2011

Aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' BLACK WATCH at City Cruise Terminal, Southampton during the afternoon and on departure when dark.
Views of Southampton Water, the other vessels in view and around her decks.
The uppermost decks forward were rather salt encrusted and 'crunchy' to walk on. Looking a bit of a mess/dirty, but this all disappeared at some point before my next walk around. Welding was going on to stb/aft of the golf nets around the railings. There used to be a large satellite ball here. During the cruise a new tall thin one appeared - did she 'lose' the old one in bad weather, or was this a new replacement?
