About Boudicca

Named for the legendary British queen who orchestrated a rebellion against Roman Empire occupiers in the 1st Century A.D., the Boudica is a Fred. Olsen cruise ship, built in 1973 and acquired by the Olsen Group in 2005. The Boudica has undergone several modifications during her service, including a considerable resizing, from her original length of 177 metres to her present 206. With a capacity of 900 passengers and 320 crew, the Boudica has 8 decks, 3 formal restaurants (in addition to a midship informal buffet), a spacious main lounge (with stage and dance floor), numerous smaller lounges and bars, and a large outdoor swimming pool which also features (weather permitting) a buffet.

The epitome of understatement with classic Old World style, the Boudica gives travelers a taste of what sailing was like in the days when Brittania ruled the high seas and elegance, rather than flashy opulence, was in vogue. The Boudica’s
clientele leans towards the more mature traveler, who are generally more concerned with the journey than the accompanying accessories. The decor is stylish without being glitzy, and in true British fashion, proper dinner attire is de rigeur.

As with all Fred. Olsen Cruises, the Boudica’s professional staff is dedicated to providing travelers with the utmost in service, performing their duties courteously and discreetly.
