Experience a holiday of a lifetime, sailing an unforgettable journey across the Pacific – stopping at a string of idyllic islands along the way – before discovering some of Australia and New Zealand’s most iconic sights and highlights, all on one incredible cruise adventure.

After chances to explore Costa Rican rainforests and relax at two of Mexico’s most popular beach resorts, your transpacific voyage begins with five days of ocean cruising on board smaller-sized Boudicca. When the South Pacific Islands finally appear, you’re in for incredible explorations of Nuku Hiva, a wonderland of volcanic scenes; and Fakarava, a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve famed for its rare plant and animal life. Meanwhile, on the islands of Tahiti, Raiatea, Moorea and Bora-Bora, you’ll be immersed in a mix of out-of-this-world beaches and crystal clear waters, set to back-drops of rolling valleys and towering peaks. And, you’ll even get to visit Tonga, the iconic ‘island where time begins’, as you complete your Pacific crossing with a relaxing week-long glide to New Zealand.

You’re sure to be fully immersed in the diverse culture and beauty of New Zealand; highlights of your Kiwi discovery included opportunities to learn of ancient Maori traditions at Rotoura on tour from Tauranga and explore the origins of the Haka in Auckland; and visit regions famed for their renowned wines from Picton. Feel the buzz of energetic Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin too; explore historic Bluff; and admire the gorgeous scenery of the Dusky, Doubtful and Milford sounds. Finally, a visit to Sydney – with time to climb the Harbour Bridge, stop-by the Opera House and more – makes for a memorable start to your Australian adventure. You could also meet cuddly koalas at Lone Pine Sanctuary on tour from Brisbane, or at Magnetic Island on tour from Townsville; from Cairns, take a boat tour of the Great Barrier Reef; and learn of authentic Aboriginal traditions. There’s even a chance to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style, watching a spectacular midnight fireworks display over Hobart harbour.

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
