Bars and Lounges


Boudicca’s comfortable bars and lounges are open throughout the day, so you’ll always find somewhere to relax with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand; marvel at the ever-changing scenery as you take the weight off your feet; or enjoy fantastic entertainment from an excellent lineup of talented performers. 

Sip a cold beer or refreshing cocktail under the afternoon sunshine at the Marquee Bar; or perhaps visit The Observatory for a Premium Afternoon Tea accompanied by spectacular views. Stop-by the welcoming Morning Light Pub or the popular Secret Garden Lounge for pre-dinner drinks; then call into the Neptune Lounge for the nightly after-dinner show. The Lido Lounge is a great place to catch up with friends during the day or dance long into the night as the resident bands and singers perform live for your enjoyment. 

In the Iceni Room you can help yourself to a warming cup of tea or coffee, but for a more indulgent experience the Bookmark Café is the place to visit to satisfy your cravings with luxurious coffees and chocolates. 

Lido Lounge

A popular after-dinner venue, the Lido Lounge – located towards the stern of the ship on Lido Deck 7 – is a great place to sit, relax and catch up with friends over a cold pint, an exotic cocktail, one of the fine premium gins on offer from our gin menu, or even something light, refreshing and non-alcoholic; or to dance the night away to fantastic live music performed by the resident band and singers.

Neptune Lounge

When you’ve finished every last morsel of your sumptuous five course meal or tempting buffet, retire to the Neptune Lounge and settle into a comfortable chair to enjoy fantastic entertainment from a wide range of performers over a glass or two of your favourite tipple, served with a smile by our ever-friendly waiters. There’s ample space in the Neptune Lounge and shows are performed after each dinner sitting every evening, so there’s no reason to miss out on the feast of music, dance, comedy and costume.

The Observatory

Located towards the bow of the ship on Marquee Deck 9 and boasting spectacular panoramic views, the Observatory Lounge is a wonderful place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Sit around the bar in the centre of the lounge, or perhaps take a seat by one of the large windows and lose yourself in the stunning sights while listening to the twinkling sounds of a grand piano.

The Observatory Lounge is also the venue for our premium Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which offers guests a selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones accompanied by premium teas and unforgettable views.

Morning Light Pub

Decorated to resemble a British pub or inn but with a Scandinavian twist, the Morning Light Pub has a welcoming atmosphere and charming traditional style. Open throughout the day and the evening, it’s the ideal place to relax and socialise with friends both old and new.

You could enjoy a quick pint or a glass of wine at lunch before spending the afternoon ashore; stop by for a pre-dinner drink; or stop-by in the late evening and relax with a few glasses of your favourite tipple before retiring to your room for a comfortable night's sleep. 

The Marquee Bar

The Marquee Bar – located towards the stern of the ship on Marquee Deck 9 – is the ideal place to take a break from relaxing in the sunshine next to the nearby pool. Find shade under the awning at the bar, where you could chat to your hearts content with the friendly staff; or perhaps grab a table with friends and watch the world sail by over a glass of your favourite tipple.

Enjoy a cold beer, a fruity wine, exotic cocktail or treat yourself to premium gins such as The Botanist Islay or Bols Jonge, perfectly complemented by Fevertree tonic water. Delicious light bites can be ordered at the Marquee Bar too – perfect if you’re peckish but don’t want to head inside and leave the sunshine behind.

Iceni room

Named after the tribe which Queen Boudicca led into battle, the intimate Iceni Room is a great place to enjoy an aperitif before retiring to the nearby Neptune Lounge for an evening of fantastic entertainment. You’ll feel right at home in the comfortable leather chairs and surrounded by fine works of art.

Open throughout the day, the Iceni Room also has self-service tea and coffee making facilities for you to use at your convenience.

Bookmark Café

Located on Lido Deck 7, the Bookmark Café is an indulgent delight that’s not to be missed.

Secret Garden Lounge & Bar

The Secret Garden Lounge and Bar is a particularly popular spot just before dinner, thanks to its close proximity to Boudicca’s dining venues. Start your evening with a cold pre-dinner pint, a glass or two of your favourite wine, or perhaps a sweet cocktail while listening to the superb resident singers; then walk the short distance to your restaurant for an indulgent dining experience.
