Introduction

Named after the British warrior Queen, Boudicca has built up a loyal following of guests who appreciate a sense of class and timeless elegance not seen or experienced on modern 'megaships'. On board, in keeping with the Fred. Olsen fleet, the emphasis is on providing an intimate and more traditional cruise experience, ensuring guests disembark after their relaxing and rewarding holiday as friends, not just customers. 

Up to 880 guests can cruise aboard Boudicca, which, thanks to an extensive refurbishment of the ship's suites, bedrooms, restaurants, lounges and facilities, will continue to show you the world∘ in comfort and style for many years∘ to come. As you explore the globe you can indulge yourself with delicious dinners in the Four Seasons, Tintagel or the Heligan Room restaurants; take a dip in one of the three heated pools; watch a show in the Neptune Lounge; simply relax on the Sun Deck; enjoy al fresco dining at The Grill; and much more, without ever feeling overcrowded.

Cruising alongside hundreds, not thousands of like-minded travellers also ensures that staff on board Boudicca can provide Fred. Olsen's renowned personal, attentive service, catering to your every want and need.

Unique Features

Fred. Olsen's new Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), the latest addition to our fleet of smaller ships. Now standing by to take you even closer.

These exciting crafts take guests away from the tourist trails to see the natural wonders, stunning beaches, spectacular coastlines and much more - in a way few others get to enjoy. An unmissable, immersive journey of exploration.

RIB experiences are available in selected ports and areas of scenic cruising∘ in some of the world’s most beautiful regions. These include Norway, Iceland Greenland, Denmark, Sweden, The Maldives, Monaco, France, Estonia and the U.K.

No matter where you choose to explore, our passion for showing you the world shines through. We encourage you to head off on a journey of discovery in every destination to really get the most out of every moment of your holiday. 

Dietary Requirements

Individual needs are as catered for as possible. So, vegetarian, low fat, dairy-free, lactose-free and gluten-free food are all on the menu.
Please make any special requests when you make your cruise∘ booking, and Fred. Olsen will do their best to source exact products, or provide certain foods, such as diabetic desserts. They may not be able to source specific brands given our location or the availability at local ports

Dress Code

When it comes to evenings onboard your cruise ship, dressing for dinner is traditional. Generally the style is smart casual, with gentlemen wearing a jacket/or shirt and tie and ladies smartly dressed. Chino type trousers∘ or smart dark jeans are acceptable, but no trainers. During the day the restaurants require cruise guests to adhere to an appropriate dress code, i.e. no swimwear.

E-cigarette Policy

Electronic cigarettes, not emitting a vapour may be used in cabins or on cabin balconies but, are not permitted in any non-smoking public area. They can easily be mistaken for a real cigarette and result in potential confrontation∘ and necessitate staff intervention.
Electronic cigarettes emitting any vapour, even if only a water vapour, may only be smoked in designated external smoking areas.

Disabled facilities

Fred. Olsen welcomes all guests relying on wheelchairs for mobility onboard cruise ships. but they do ask that you advise them of your mobility∘ needs at the time of booking in order to meet heir health & safety requirements.

All Inclusive Packages

Upgrade to the special All Inclusive Package∘ and you can relax, knowing almost everything is covered. You'll enjoy selected beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks all day.

Environmental

At Fred. Olsen we are committed to reducing the impact we have on the environment around us.

With our ships sailing to the four corners of the earth, we want to minimise the impact we make on all the beautiful places we visit and ensure that they are protected for future generations. As a company, we strive to comply with all environmental requirements and take steps to exceed them whenever possible.

Continuing our ongoing efforts to help alleviate plastic pollution and its global environmental impact, single use plastic water bottles are no longer available to purchase throughout our fleet, for guests or crew, and glass carafes, which are replenished daily, are in use in all cabins.

Guests can bring their own refillable water bottles, or purchase on board in the ship's Port Shop; these can be filled in any of our bars, and we are in the process of installing water stations across the fleet.

Little changes can make a big difference

✔ We have removed all single-use coffee cups, plastic cutlery and plastic straws

✔ Plastic jam and butter portions have been replaced with refillable options

✔ New linen bags have replaced plastic laundry bags

✔ The consumption of cling film in The Galley has been reduced

✔ Ropes are now used to secure items during rough seas rather than plastic

✔ Wooden pencils are provided in cabins, instead of plastic pens

✔ All printed marketing communication is on responsibly sourced FSC approved paper

Refill your water bottle!

We are excited to be supporting the Refill Campaign, run by environmental campaigning organisation City to Sea, to raise awareness of the impact of single-use plastic water bottles on the environment, and encourage people to use refillable water bottles instead.

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and it’s predicted that figure will rise by another 20% by 2021.

Find out more about how you could save money, stay hydrated and help prevent plastic pollution at source with Refill.

Fuel

Fred. Olsen comply with all international policies and take steps to exceed them whenever possible.

Our ocean-going ships use a mix of Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO) and Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO). As we approach port of calls and sail through special emission control areas, the LSFO – which has a sulphur content of just 0.1% – is used. Outside of these areas, we switch to the use of HFO, which contains a sulphur content of 1-2%. Both fuels are currently below the existing global sulphur limit.

From 1st January 2020, the limit for sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas will be reduced to 0.50%. We have already started to take steps to switch our ships to lower emission fuel where possible.

Waste Recycling

All waste created on board is taken to a dedicated waste and recycling sorting area on the vessel.

It is then separated into glass, metal cans, paper/cardboard, plastic, food waste and general waste. Once sorted, these materials are compacted and stored ready to be offloaded at the next available port. Cooking oil is also offloaded in port, so that it can be repurposed.

Food waste is, on some occasions, pulped and then discharged into the sea in accordance with Marpol regulations, as food waste can be eaten by fish. In addition, some items are incinerated on board, again in accordance with all environmental and safety regulations.

There's ample space to relax∘ and plenty of sunloungers and seating on Sun Deck and Marquee Deck, which, with its pool and convenient bar, is perfect for sail away parties; while taking a stroll along Lido Deck's open promenade is a great way to work-off your holiday indulgences.
