Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ 880-passenger mv Boudicca will enter drydock at Lloyd Werft shipyard (Bremerhaven, Germany) this November, in preparation for the forthcoming 2016-2017 cruise season.

Boudicca arrived in Bremerhaven yesterday from the Port of Tyne, Newcastle, after a 16-night cruise. The ship will undergo a variety of engineering work, interior and exterior painting, as well as general refurbishment.


During the drydock, mv Boudicca will see 28 cabins on Deck 7 fitted with private terrace balconies. The renewed cabins will extend out 1.2 m from ship’s bulkhead.

Mike Rodwell, Managing Director of Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We experience extremely high demand for balcony cabins across our fleet, in particular on a smaller-sized ship such as Boudicca, and our new terrace balcony cabins are an innovative response to this.

We installed the new terrace balcony cabins on sister ship Black Watch during her dry dock last Autumn, and these have proved very popular with our guests.”
