The intimate scale of this venerable ship is one of the standout advantages to a cruise on Boudicca – smaller ships are known for their cosy, friendly feel and their ability to dock at smaller ports.

About Boudicca

Traditional styling and relaxing activities are the order of the day onboard, setting the tone for a civilised and tranquil cruise enjoyed by all.

Two appealing pool areas adorn this ship, one large enough for laps, and on sunny days at sea the surrounding sundecks are a very pleasant place to enjoy the breeze. There are also indulgent treatments on offer in the gleaming Atlantis spa, a roomy fitness centre for a panoramic workout, and a pair of golf nets for practising that perfect swing.

For less energetic pursuits, head to the library or card room – or perhaps take part in one of the organised quizzes or bridge tournaments. There are plenty of peaceful corners on the ship to spend a couple of hours chatting or reading undisturbed.

Mealtimes revolve around the three main restaurants, which offer a variation in decor and ambiance but serve the same imaginative menu. A new feature onboard is The Grill, a pleasant dining venue where you can eat al fresco – although it comes at an additional charge, if you fancy a treat.

There are a variety of evening venues to catch a performance – from comedy nights to cabaret – and guests can enjoy the traditional glamour of sail away parties on many of Boudicca’s itineraries.
