In the South Pacific, indulge in the paradise of idyllic islands including Bora Bora and Nuku Hiva, before sailing on to New Zealand – to learn of Maori traditions, visit famous wine regions, sail fjord-like sounds – and Australia. During your time in the land ‘Down Under’, highlights include chances to see the iconic landmarks of Sydney; meet cuddly koalas at Lone Pine Sanctuary on tour from Brisbane; take a boat tour to the Great Barrier Reef; and celebrate New Year’s Eve in Hobart.[ReadMoreDesk]

For an immersive insight into Asia’s diversity, there are Far-Eastern and Indian adventures; see the best of Bali; visit orphaned orangutans in Borneo; delve into Ho Chi Minh City’s infamous Vietnamese war history; and explore India’s spiritual beginnings in Porbandar, the birthplace of Gandhi. You’ll experience modern Asia in Singapore, and capture the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, where you can even help busy Dabbawallas delivering lunches across the city. In the Middle East, there are visits to Egypt and Jordan for tours of the Valley of the Kings, Great Pyramids of Giza and the ‘lost city’ of Petra, while Ashdod and Haifa are gateways to the hallowed sites of Jerusalem and Bethlehem in Israel. Finally, on a sail through the Med, the ancient ruins of Ephesus – reached on tour from Kuşadası; the world-famous attractions of Istanbul and ancient Athens; historic Valletta; and the Moroccan city of Tangier await.

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
