Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Boudicca will depart Dover, England on 3 October 2019 for the longest sailing in the company’s history. Over the 168-night ‘Grand Voyage’, guests will be able to visit 61 different ports and destinations around the world.
Guests wanting a shorter experience can book sections of the longer cruise, including a 14-night ‘Indonesian Islands Discovery’ from Phuket, Thailand to Bali, Indonesia in November 2019. Also available is a 14-night ‘Authentic India’ exploration from Colombo, Sri Lanka to Dubai, United Arab Emirates in February 2020.
“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,” said Jackie Martin, sales and marketing director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. “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 also enjoy making memories to last a lifetime!”
Boudicca will still be displaying a red poppy livery when she sets sails from Dover, following her role in transporting 250 D-Day veterans to Normandy, France on the ‘D-Day 75 Voyage of Remembrance’ in June 2019.
“We are delighted that the Port of Dover has been chosen as the starting point for such a celebrated Fred. Olsen cruise,” said Sonia Limbrick, head of cruise at the Port of Dover. “As Dover is immersed in UK history, its iconic cliffs and castle provide the perfect backdrop to begin a voyage to some of the world’s famed destinations.”
