With five days of this exceptional seven-night cruise being spent in the breathtaking Norwegian fjordland, you’ll board Boudicca knowing you’re in for a holiday packed with stunning sights and memorable experiences. The scenic delights of a variety of picturesque fjords; natural wonders within reach of enchanting fjord villages; and the attractions of Norway’s charming second city all await on this wonderful week away.

First you’ll have a chance to marvel at extraordinary landscapes during mesmeric scenic cruising of Lysefjord; a feat only managed on smaller ships. Larger vessels are kept away by a bridge at the entrance of Lysefjord, so be sure to make the most of your opportunity to see majestic mountains, cliffs and rugged rock formations in all their glory as you sail the fjord’s glass-like waters. [ReadMoreDesk]There’s incredible scenic cruising of Nordfjord and by the Hornelen sea cliff to experience the following day too, but not until after you have visited one of the fjordland’s most picturesque villages, Olden. Set amongst postcard-perfect scenes of lush-green meadows, babbling brooks and magnificent mountains, Olden is a delight to explore. It’s also your gateway to the gorgeous Oldedalen Valley, the astonishing Briksdal and Kjenndalen glaciers, and the pretty Lovatnet Lake. 

A host of highlights are yours to uncover during a call at Flåm, too. During your stop at this beautifully unspoilt village, situated deep within the awe-inspiring Sognefjord, you could opt for a scenic tour that ends with a trip to the 650-metre-high Stegastein Lookout. The views on offer from Stegastein never fail to create everlasting memories. Alternatively, perhaps you’ll choose to take a ride on the iconic Flåmsbana railway, which carves its way through magnificent mountains and by a string of impressive waterfalls. Finally, after an unforgettable evening of scenic cruising in spellbinding Nærøyfjord – one of National Geographic’s top two Natural World Heritage Sites – it is on to Bergen. This historic city boasts a wealth of diverse attractions; from the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf and the traditional fish market to the fascinating Troldhaugen Museum, which was once the home of legendary Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. No time in Bergen is complete without riding the Funicular Railway to the top of the magnificent, 320-metre-high Mount Fløyen – among Norway’s most famous attractions – to take in views of the city and its rugged surrounding landscapes.

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.

Real ships
We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel.  We ensure they remain contemporary too: from winter 2016 to spring 2018 the whole fleet underwent dry dock refits to further enhance the facilities for guests. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman and 170 years of seafaring heritage behind us, we believe we’ve found the perfect formula for you to get the best out of your holiday with us.

Smaller but spacious
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space; far from it. Each room is comfortably sized, with all that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday. In fact, our rooms are comparable to those on some of the mammoth cruise ships. While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space.  With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Service with a smile
Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday: in guest feedback our staff are always the most highly-rated aspect of the whole experience.
