Ship Facts: Boudicca Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Boudicca Deck Plans
Amazon Adventure
Just returned from 35 day cruise on Boudicca to the Amazon and the Caribbean.

Overall, it was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the ports and excursions.

Unfortunately, even though we all were very vigilant about washing and sanitizing our hands throughout the voyage, a large percentage of the passengers seemed to have contracted bronchial problems and sore throats.

I feel sure that the air conditioning on this lovely but old ship helped to make things worse, especially as we had to spend 9 days at sea at the end of the cruise due to missing out on our last port of call - The Azores. As the weather was not as warm during this period, most people had to remain inside and hence be in this air conditioned environment. This did rather take the shine off things, as some passengers had come on the cruise specifically to see the Amazon and the Azores. We never did find out the real reason for not stopping at the Azores and no apology came from the captain.

However, I must praise the chefs and the waiting staff, who made every meal a delight. Our cabin stewardess was also very pleasant and hardworking. The reception staff were also very attentive and helpful. Most of the lectures were most entertaining and informative, especially Professor Tony Rice's - the Oceanographer.
