Boudicca is a classically beautiful and well balanced ship that fits into the Fred. Olsen brand of intimate, comfortable cruising almost seamlessly. A near twin sister of Black Watch, she has the same deep draught that makes her such a good ocean-going vessel.
Cabins are generous in size, as these ships were originally built for round the world cruising. The deck space is very attractive for a ship of this size- only 28,000 tons- yet the public rooms foster an air of cosy elegance that makes relaxation easy from day one.
Fred. Olsen retains the traditional two sittings for dinner, much beloved of classical cruising, but also offers a variety of alternative dining venues for an exotic twist. Throughout, food is one of the strong points of this ship, both in quality and presentation.
Boudicca has many attractive nooks and crannies, ideal for curling up with a good book or a G and T, and a stunning observation lounge looking out over the raked bow. At the stern, a series of elegant terraces offer bewitching views back out over the ships wake as she heads for the horizon.
Boudicca is a timeless jewel on a sparkling ocean that offers true style and value, and delivers both with a warm smile.
