Boudicca image
The Boudicca was our home for a period of 12 days when we took a trip on Fred Olsen Cruise Line from Newcastle through ports in the Baltic. This was a last-minute decision in terms of deciding we were going to go on a trip, but the decision was well-worth it in the long run.

We did nothing extraordinary in terms of the experience onboard. We settled for a basic outside cabin on deck 3 which suited us perfectly fine. The cabin was not huge, but what cruise ship has huge basic cabins? The room was clean and comfortable, the two most important factors to take into consideration, especially when you need to spend 12 days in the room.

The room steward was kind enough to turn our 2 single beds into a double bed to help with space and of course, overall comfort. The rest of the cabin was made up of a dressing table, a small television, tea kettle, and a basic bathroom with a shower and toilet.

In terms of the overall appearance of the ship, we were very pleased. The ship was well-kept in very good condition. The public areas including the bars were all well decorated and spacious. The entertainment from dancing classes, to card games were also very enjoyable.

The wait staff made sure we had great experiences, and made the most out of the smaller ship.

Entertainment staff were led by Ashley who was great. Some of the other entertainment were also strong, but were definitely outclassed by production casts on some of the other cruise lines I have been on in the past.

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
The meals were not top notch in terms of quality, but they were very well made and tasty. This was not an overly expensive trip so you cannot expect the best food in the world.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
