The first voyage of the 800-passenger ship, departing from Falmouth on 12 April 2016, is a 12-day Canary Islands & Portugal cruise, with ports of call including Tenerife, Madeira, Lanzarote, and Lisbon. Prices start from £1,100 per person based on double occupancy.
MS Boudicca will then return to Falmouth on April 24, where she will depart on a 10-day voyage to John O’Groats from Land’s End. The first port visited will be Liverpool, followed by Kirkwall situated on Orkney Islands, Invergordon for Inverness, and the famed Loch Ness. Then, Boudicca will visit the nearest cruise port to John O’Groats, Scrabster. Heading back to Falmouth, the ship will call at Tobermory, used in the kids' TV show Balamory, followed by Belfast to enjoy a visit to ‘Titanic Belfast’ exhibit. Prices start from £1,000.
Earlier this year, Fred Olsen changed its policy, so passengers do not need a valid passport to sail on this voyage. Acceptable alternatives include a driving licence, EU national ID card, firearms licence, council-issued bus pass or travel card, or a Val-ID-ate UK card.
Fred Olsen's Boudicca will return to Falmouth on May 4, where she will then sail to Liverpool on her next cruise.
