Beautiful Boudicca – Outstanding service and Friendly!

My husband and I decided to try the Boudicca mainly for the itinerary which went to Iceland and Norway, places that we have been wanting to see for a long time. To approach these places in a cruise ship, often at sunrise, was one of the highlights of the cruise along with seeing both whales and seals in their natural habitat. We had travelled on Black Watch before and loved the friendly atmosphere onboard and we were not disappointed with Boudicca either.
Although we were quite a bit younger than the average clientele onboard, we really enjoyed this cruise. The food was really, really good. The service outstanding. Both the staff and our fellow cruisers were friendly. The places we visited were interesting and beautiful. If the entertainment had been less old-fashioned, it would have been perfect.
I would also like to say how impressed I was with how well the staff onboard coped with the bad weather that we experienced going up to Iceland. They still served breakfast and cleaned the cabins in force 10! I had trouble walking around and how the cabin stewards and waiters still managed to work in those conditions was amazing.
Fred Olsen may not have the glamour or some of the mod cons that you may find on a P&O ship, but they are definitely not lacking in quality or service. Their motto ‘It’s all about the people’ is spot on. If you like a small, quiet and friendly ship, then this may be the cruise ship for you. We certainly enjoyed it.
