Featuring a number of Indonesia’s scenic islands, this extensive exploration of the world’s largest archipelagic country aboard Boudicca will offer unmissable sights and experiences throughout, with chances to seek-out natural wonders, incredible fauna and flora, breathtaking beaches and more amongst diverse, unspoilt landscapes.

From the Thai island of Phuket, where you’ll have time to relax at the idyllic white-sand beaches of the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ or simply settle in on board your ship before setting sail, you’ll head to Weh Island for your first glimpse of Indonesia’s spectacular island scenes. Weh’s lush-green, jungle smothered interiors are ripe for exploration, though many visitors stick to the coast to unwind on the white sands or snorkel the warm clear waters in the hope of spotting delightful marine creatures, such as manta rays, whale sharks, dolphins and sea turtles. For a quick change of pace, Boudicca will then divert to Singapore, offering a contrasting experience to your island adventures. With its soaring skyscrapers and vibrant city life, Singapore is Asia at its most modern. You’ll have time to explore the city-state’s bustling Financial and Chinatown districts; visit the gorgeous Gardens by the Bay, with its array of fragrant flora from around the globe and even enjoy high tea at the famous Raffles Hotel.

Semarang, a fascinating city situated on the picturesque north coast of Java Island, will welcome you back to Indonesia after your overnight stop in Singapore. Not-to-be-missed here is the sensational Borobudur Temple. Built in the 8th and 9th centuries by the Sailendra Dynasty, the UNESCO-listed Borobudur is the world’s largest Buddhist temple and famed for its bell-shaped stupas and awe-inspiring volcanic surroundings. A wonderland of volcanic scenery awaits you at Lombok Island, home of Gunung Rinjani – Indonesia’s second highest volcano – too. During a day docked at Lembar, you could opt for a tour to Gunung Rinjani and marvel at the vast crater lakes and bubbling hot springs. Alternatively, head to one of Lombok’s many white sand beaches – you’ll soon understand why this gorgeous island is popular with sun-worshippers and surfers. Finally, after visiting Komodo Island for a chance to see Komodo Dragons – the world’s largest lizards – in their extraordinary UNESCO-listed natural habitat, you’ll head to beautiful Bali. The remarkable Ubud rice terraces, sacred Goa Gajah Elephant Cave and an abundance of ancient temples are just some of the many attractions you could discover, if you choose to leave the inviting sun-soaked beaches of Benoa behind.

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’re not interested in gimmicks like zip wires, climbing walls or celebrity chefs. 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.
