Immersive cultural and spiritual experiences await you too. In India, you can soak-up the hustle and bustle of Mumbai; explore Porbandar, the birthplace of Gandhi; and tour to the Taj Mahal from Kochi, while your time in Papua New Guinea will include an opportunity to enjoy the festivity of Alotau’s extravagant Cultural Festival. You can also uncover the impressive mosques and souks of Muscat and Salalah in Oman; and even follow in the footsteps of Jewish, Muslim and Christian pilgrims on tour to Jerusalem from Ashdod, Israel. A combination of fascinating historic sites and modern marvels are also thrown into the mix. Step back in time at astonishing ancient treasures, such as the ‘lost city’ of Petra in Jordan; Athens’ Acropolis ruins and the mighty Parthenon; and Cartagena’s Roman Amphitheatre, and delight in 21st century life during calls into sparkling cities such as Melbourne, the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’; skyscraper-laden Singapore; and Dubai, home to the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building. To top-it-all-off, Boudicca will also make a specially timed visit to Sydney to offer you an opportunity to savour the city’s famous New Year’s Eve celebrations and watch the annual fireworks light up the midnight sky over the iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

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.
