Boudiccia: Boudicca Cruise Review by 1962
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Southern Caribbean
We where in the Tintangle Restaurant for evening meal, if Fred Olsen has made any cost savings ,this is where it showed , not in the quality of the food but in the service .Waiters seem to have one or two tables too many ,which meant that you had to wait quite a long time between courses .
The More entertainment is the normal Fred Olsen stuff , a small dance troupe ,the odd guest entertainer ,quizzes and pianists.Maybe its time for Fred to be alittle more adventurous ,how about a late night movie in the Neptune lounge(show something different to the in cabin T.V)., let the comedian do a late night spot.or how about a sports bar with Sky T.V.
Excursions we took 5 and all were well executed ,staggered departures so less chaos in getting your "spot" .
Over all the Boudiccia has no "wow" factor , no grand stair case ,no row of glitzy shops ,what she does have is a nice calm, gentile feel ,a ship who's crew know how to deliver a first class service. For the record yes the Captain does play his trumpet ,not only at his cocktail parties he has been known to make a late night appearance in the Lido bar and play with the band . Less
Cabin review: ms9017
Loads of storage, big double sink bathroom with full size bath.Balcony- room for 2 chairs & table only .Have to get on your knees to use safe !!!
Not as good as expected
Captain calls it the fabulous ...
A few negatives, but with Fred...
