Visiting a string of captivating cities and beautiful islands in the Americas, you’ll be fully immersed in a melting pot of diverse cultures, history and natural beauty. Absorb the indomitable Cuban spirit during an extended stay in Havana; dance the rumba, mambo and cha, sip rum cocktails and see the city sights via classic car, to experience authentic local life. You’re in for a taste of Colombian culture and heritage too in Cartagena de Indias, an ancient walled city famed for its coffer, emeralds and Spanish colonial history.

In Mexico and Belize, incredible Mayan ruins await your discovery; the Mexican island of Cozumel is home to legendary ancient ruins and shrines dedicated to Ixchel, and Belize City is the gateway to an abundance of remarkable archaeological sites. There are chances to embrace nature on this epic journey too; fauna-rich waters and coral reefs are within reach from Cozumel and Belize City, while on tour from Puerto Limón you could encounter sloths and monkeys in the Costa Rican rainforest. Finally, for one last unforgettable experience, you’ll even enjoy a navigation of the magnificent Panama Canal – one of the world’s greatest engineering feats.

Named after the British warrior Queen, Boudicca has built up a loyal following, combining style and space with the renowned personal Fred. Olsen service. Up to 880 guests can sail in comfort on board Boudicca, enjoying the welcoming, home-from-home ambience, ample space and fantastic restaurants, lounges, bars and facilities of a smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ship.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile
