Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:


Boudicca’s ‘Grand Voyage’ – of an epic 168 nights – is set to be the longest, most extensive sailing ever undertaken in Fred. Olsen’s history! Guests will get the chance to visit no fewer than 61 different ports, towns and cities right across the globe, taking in far-flung destinations rich in culture and steeped in history.


“We wanted to make our guests’ holidays even more special by doubling the amount of free spending credit  available on our ground-breaking ‘Grand Voyage’, enabling them to make the most of their time on board with immersive shore excursions, a spa treatment or two, or a sumptuous meal in our speciality steak and seafood restaurant, The Grill –  all compliments of Fred. Olsen!


“Of course, we appreciate that not everyone is able to sail away for an entire 168 nights, so we hope that those looking to take a shorter, but equally exotic, Fred. Olsen fly-cruise will enjoy our ‘FREE Drinks & Tips’ upgrade, all the while making memories to last a lifetime!”
