Cruise Description

84 Night World Cruise Sector sailing from Southampton to Dubai aboard Black Watch.

With Black Watch as your guide you’ll see out 2018 in style and enjoy an unforgettable start to 2019 on this incredible cruise, taking in idyllic islands, historic, culture-rich cities, vast, bustling metropolises and even one of the world’s greatest and most famous New Year’s celebrations as you explore the Americas, Oceania and Asia.

In the Americas several stunning destinations await your discovery after gliding across the Atlantic via Lisbon and the floral island of Madeira. You’ll island-hop in the Caribbean for chances to discover the gorgeous beaches, historic sites and natural wonders of Antigua, Dominica, Barbados and Bonaire; then in Colombia, enjoy a rewarding day of exploration in the wonderful walled city of Cartagena de Indias, renowned for its fascinating Hispanic history. You will also experience scenic cruising of the impressive Panama Canal, dubbed the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’, and call into Puntarenas and Puerto Caldera in Costa Rica before Black Watch heads across the Pacific towards Australia. En route you will visit a string of spectacular South Pacific Islands to marvel at the volcanic landscapes of Nuku Hiva and Rangiroa; sample pure bliss on Tahiti, Bora-Bora and Tonga; and revel in the unspoilt beauty of Mystery Island. You will also enjoy a magical Christmas Day at sea.

Once in ‘the land down under’ an abundance of amazing experiences await you. An undoubted highlight of this epic voyage is an extended stay in Sydney, specially timed to coincide with the city’s world-famous New Year’s Eve celebrations, which include the iconic midnight fireworks display above the Harbour Bridge. You’ll also visit Cairns, gateway to the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef; and Darwin, from where you can take a tour to experience a taste of authentic aboriginal life. Finally the incredible diversity of Asia is yours to explore. You’re sure to be left spellbound by the contrasting sights of Komodo Island – home of the world’s largest lizards – and the energetic, attraction-packed megalopolis of Singapore; while from fabulous Phuket you can visit the iconic Phang Nga Bay and world-famous ‘James Bond Island’. Speaking of Asian icons, there are a plethora to discover in India. During a call into Kochi you could head to Kumbalangi to see the famous Chinese fishing nets; or perhaps take an overland tour to the magical Taj Mahal. You’ll also enjoy a day of delving into India’s European influences in historic Goa, before visiting bustling Mumbai. An overnight stay will afford time to take in modern and traditional highlights such as the Gateway of India and the unique Dhobi Ghat before your cruise concludes in Dubai.

Highlights of this cruise:

Lisbon, Portugal
Spread out over seven hills on the north of the River Tagus, Lisbon is a delightful mix of palaces, art-nouveau cafés, museums, gardens, ancient castles and splendid bridges. Don’t miss a visit to the Centro Commercial Colombo – the biggest shopping mall on the Iberian Peninsula!

Funchal, Madeira
Located off the coast of Africa, Funchal has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this 'floating garden' with the year-round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Completely unspoilt, this incredible tropical paradise is barely a kilometre long and just 200 metres wide with stretches of glorious golden beaches, windswept palm trees and a coral reef abundant with thousands of fish, in a deep blue, calm sea.

Sydney, Australia
Sydney, Australia is one of the world's most exciting, must-visit modern cities. Home to the famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House - two of the most iconic structures on Earth - it is easy to understand why Sydney is so highly regarded. A timeless, charming city, you will fall in love with this cosmopolitan metropolis as soon as you step off the ship.

Brisbane, Australia
With its harmonious mix of elegant colonial sandstone structures and modern glass skyscrapers, Brisbane is one of the world's fastest developing cities. Located alongside the beautiful Brisbane River, this friendly, welcoming city has a laid back, vibrant atmosphere and offers an abundance of walks, reserves and barbecue hotspots to enjoy.

Komodo, Indonesia

The surrounding seas have extensive coral reefs, mangrove swamps and sea-grass beds home to sharks, dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and whales.

Goa, India
The tiny State of Goa is renowned for its superb beaches and colonial history. Combining the best of Indian and Portuguese culture, Goa is both a classic beach resort and a sightseeing delight, with a mix of scenic beauty and architectural delights, from golden sandy beaches and spice plantations to striking temples and bustling markets.
