Boudicca deck plans
Deck layouts, review of facilities, activities, amenities
Each of the Boudicca cruise ship deck plans are conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and detailed review of all the deck's venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides an extensive information on Boudicca staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans and amenities by room type and category.
MS Boudicca (built 1973 as Royal Viking Sky, last refurbished in 2018, scheduled refurbishment 2020) is the second oldest among the Fred Olsen ships – with fleet mates Black Watch, Braemar and Balmoral. This vessel was originally built for the Royal Viking Line (defunct) but was also owned and operated under different names by other lines, including NCL-Norwegian, Princess Cruises, Star Cruises, Iberocruceros. Boudicca ship entered the Fred Olsen fleet in 2005.

Boudicca deck plan changes 2018 refurbishment review
During the drydock in 2018 at Blohm+Voss Hamburg (March 17-27), to the ship were added two fiberglass bottomed boats, each with capacity 12 passengers. The extensive refit also included general maintenance works, cabin refurbishments (all staterooms and public areas), painting all the vessel's interiors and exterior (hull and superstructure).
- All passenger cabins were updated with new carpeting, new soft furnishings, and upholstery, new lamps, new balcony furniture, mini-fridges, electronic safes, flat TVs (interactive system).
- All public areas and venues (bars, lounges, dining venues) were extensively upgraded and redesigned.
- Morning Light Pub (deck 6) was moved to the port side of Secret Garden Cafe.
- The Heligan Room (deck 6, port side) was converted into "Indian Ocean Restaurant".
The list of deck plan changes after the ship's 2015 refurbishment (done by Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven Germany) includes:
- A total of 28 cruise cabins (located on Lido Deck 7) were refitted/upgraded with private balconies. The newly added verandas extend out 4 ft / 1,2 m from the bulkhead of the ship. Fred Olsen balcony staterooms have extremely high booking demand across the line’s fleet. Same terrace balconies were installed on the Black Watch during the ship’s 2014 dry dock refurbishment. Since Lido Deck is also the ship’s Promenade Deck (outdoor walking area), these new verandas are impinging onto but not interrupting the walk-around Promenade. There is a transparent railing between the veranda and the open-deck area. This means less privacy as other passengers will be walking right in front of the balcony screens.
- General maintenance works included: new hull coating, modification of the piping system, the ship’s stabilizers and the rudder were repaired and the bow thruster (propulsion unit) was replaced.
The list of deck plan changes after the 2013 drydock refurbishment (done by Blohm+Voss in Hamburg Germany) included three new (remodeled) lounge and bar areas:
- Morning Light Pub (former Neptune Bar)
- Cafe Venus (specialty coffee/chocolate shop, around the Library)
- The Grill (specialty restaurant, former Poolside Cafe buffet).
