Boudicca has a storied pedigree. This classic, 880-passenger ship was originally the highly-acclaimed Royal Viking Sky back in 1973, but prior to joining Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in 2006, it was refurbished, redesigned, reconfigured, and reinvented. The extensive work included renovating cabins to be reborn as staterooms with balconies, the removal of a disco and casino to make way for a new library, card room and Lido Bar, as well as the construction of two brand new restaurants. Traditions are important with Fred. Olsen and the Boudicca reflects this with its set dining times and genteel onboard activities.

Delightful rarities in today’s world of vast dining rooms where the décor is often more notable than the cuisine, the refined Four Seasons Restaurant is separated from the vibrant Tintagel Restaurant by a well-designed circular buffet. There is also the smaller Heligan Room with ash wood and gold fabrics which many past guests enjoy. In the informal Secret Garden Café, there’s an al fresco ambience at breakfast and lunch; as well as popular Indian, Thai and Indonesian-themed buffet dinners.

The Secret Garden Lounge is the epicentre of life on board while the most serene room is undoubtedly the Observatory above the Navigation Bridge. There are the Neptune and Morning Light bars which are always popular before and after meals, while the Iceni Lounge is a quiet retreat with large brown leather chairs. In the Card Room, there’s instruction from English Bridge Union instructors, and the well-stocked Library has armchairs facing out to sea. The Neptune Lounge offers revues of West End musical favourites, as well as guest stars from the small screen and big stage. Special theme nights such as ‘British Night’ are popular, so too is the Crew Show.

Boudicca underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2015 during which 28 terrace balcony cabins which lead out onto an open promenade were added. Inside cabins are fairly petite at 140 sq ft; while Oceanview and Balcony cabins come in at between 160 and 200 sq ft. Top of the range accommodation includes Junior Suites; Superior Junior Suites; Terrace Balcony Suites; Balcony Suites; Superior Suites; Marquee Suites; and the 550 sq ft Premier Suites. Boudicca is also a good choice for solo cruisers. There are two Single Balcony Suites; four Outside Singles; and 24 Inside Singles.

There are lots of things we love about Boudicca: the classic ambience of this vessel with its open Promenade Deck; the three swimming pools; the Grill for outdoor dining at its best; speciality coffees in the Bookmark Café; the golf nets; as well as the reasonable prices at the Atlantis Spa and Salon.
