Review of Boudicca

Launched in 1973 as Royal Viking Sky, Boudicca is the second oldest of the Fred Olsen ships, with fleetmates Black WatchBalmoral and Braemar. The ship cost US $23 million to build and was last refurbished in 2015.

History - construction & ownership

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is a Norwegian-owned, UK-based cruise shipping line with four ships, part of the Fred. Olsen Group. The headquarters of the company are in Ipswich, Suffolk, the UK, and it is owned by Bonheur and Ganger Rolf. The company of Fred Olsen originated in 1848 in Hvitsten, a little town on Oslofjord, Norway, by three Olsen brothers, Petter, Andras and Fredrik Christian, who bought their first ships and established an international shipping company. Today the line is into the 5th generation of the family and operates companies skilled within cruise and passenger shipping trade, ships' crewing, ship building, aviation and offshore industries. 

The 28,551-ton, 839-passenger cruise ship Boudicca is decked out, as an aging grande dame must be, in good quality, discreetly modern fabrics, though some of the colour schemes are a little dated. But it doesn't matter: the vessel is well-proportioned and destitute of cheap flashiness and surface glitz, and these are the most important things to Boudicca's aim audience of 60-plus Brits.

Cruise itinerary program

Boudicca itinerary program is based on Mediterranean and Northern European cruises with UK departures from SouthamptonLiverpool, Dover to the Arctic (North Cape), Norwegian Fjords, Canary Islands, British Isles, North Africa.

Cabins

Most Boudicca staterooms are 160-200-sq.foot Oceanview rooms (191). There are a total of 462 staterooms in 21 categories. 4 are the wheelchair accessible cabins. The largest aboard Boudicca are the Premier Suites (550 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

The main dining room on Boudicca is divided into 3 venues: Four Seasons, Heligan and Tintagel. While breakfast is typically open seating, there are 2 seatings for lunch and dinner. Food display counters are offered for guests to help themselves for breakfast and lunch. Fred Olsen Cruise Lines features above-average cuisine. A number of popular British pub standards are offered, such as bangers and mash, spotted dick and toad in the hole. Breakfast buffets are quite repetitious. Self-serve deck buffets are provided at the Poolside Café and fast food items - at the Marquee Bar.

Follows the complete list of Boudicca restaurants and food bars.

  • Main Dining Room Restaurants (Tintagel, Four Seasons, and the smallest Heligan Room; all offer open-seating buffet Breakfast (7:30 - 9:30 am) and Lunch (12:00 - 2 pm; Dinner is waiter-served, with two fixed seatings at 6:15 pm and 8:00 pm)

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

Boudicca was "stretched" in the early 80's with the addition of a 91-foot midsection, and while the cruise liner is still keeping a classic profile, she has gained a significant amount of open-air sunbathing area on the top deck. In 2006 Boudicca underwent a renovation to bring the ship in line with the fleet's understated, old-world style. In January 2011, the vessel went into dry dock once more for a repair, which moved the windowless gym up to Deck 10 and made more free space on Deck 4 for new inside cabins. The retail outlet Port Store was added. Carpets were replaced throughout the vessel, and enclosed lifeboats were mounted.

  • In the early 80's, the Boudicca ship was "stretched" with an additional 91 ft long midsection. The refit added a vast open-air sunbathing space in the middle of its top deck. The vessel underwent a major refit for bringing it in line with the Fred Olsen fleet's old-world style, right after it was acquired in 2005. In 2011, the ship went into drydock for another refit that changed the place of the windowless gym to Deck 10, thus making space for 17 new cabins on Deck 4. The Port Shop (a retail outlet) was also added, enclosed lifeboats were fixed, carpets were replaced throughout.
