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 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.[ReadMoreDesk]

You’re sure to be fully immersed in the diverse culture and beauty of New Zealand; you could learn of ancient Maori traditions on tour to Rotoura from Tauranga; celebrate the history of the ‘All Blacks’ and the origins of the Haka in Auckland; and, from Picton, visit the Marlborough wine region, famed for its Sauvignon Blanc. Taste modern Kiwi culture in the energetic cities of Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin, contrasting the slower-paced lifestyle of historic, Bluff – a maiden Fred. Olsen call – known for its picturesque scenery and maritime heritage, and experience the unspoilt serenity of the fjord-like Dusky, Doubtful and Milford sounds from the comfort of your smaller ship.

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.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
