Visiting a rich variety of destinations, each as immersive and rewarding as the next, provides unmissable opportunities to discover everything from beautiful scenery and native wildlife to modern marvels and spiritual sites, for a full-flavour taste of Asia’s remarkable diversity.

You’re in diverse, memorable sights and experiences throughout your Far-Eastern adventure, and even before you set sail. You’ll meet Boudicca in Benoa and have time to see the best of Bali; untrodden beaches, ancient temples and forests teeming with amazing wildlife – such as Balinese long-tailed monkeys – await discovery. Speaking of amazing wildlife, your smaller ship makes a specially planned maiden visit to the Bornean city of Sandakan for tours to the protected lands of Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve, where you can see orphaned and confiscated orangutans – as well as other species including Sumatran rhinos and elephants – living freely in their natural habitat.

In Vietnam, you could immerse yourself in tales of infamous war history in Ho Chi Minh City; visit the symbolic Independence Palace and the War Remnants Museum, or even retrace the steps of the Viet Cong and explore the sprawling Củ Chi underground tunnels. Continuing on to Cambodia, there’s rich history, culture and spirituality to explore in Phnom Penh; take a tour to the capital from Sihanoukville to seek-out landmarks such as the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and National Museum. Finally, in contrast to where it all began in Bali, Singapore boasts soaring man-made marvels and expresses modern Asian life. You’ve an overnight stay here to experience all the hustle and bustle of city-state’s fast-moving districts, from the Financial Quarter with its towering skyscrapers to energetic Chinatown. There’s time to visit the gorgeous Gardens by the Bay, with its array of fragrant flora from around the globe; stop by Raffles to enjoy high tea in the opulent surroundings of the world-famous hotel; and much more too.

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.

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.
