Fred Olsen Virgins - definitely want to go again

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Newcastle (England)

We late booked this cruise on the Boudicca as it included Iceland as well as the Norwegian Fjords. We definitely were not disappointed. We had read some negative reports, I can only say those people must be extremely picky or just like moaning.

The boat was most comfortable, the staff could not have been more helpful, polite and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Our towels were changed almost twice daily, our room was clean and kept spotless. NOW IT COMES TO FOOD:::

OH MY GOD - it was to die for. Not only beautifully served, and presented by fabulous waiting staff, but delicious and not at all repetitious. I am gluten free and even at afternoon tea, gluten free cakes were provided along with diabetic cakes for the people who required them. The shows were really good, and Reykavik was the highlight for us. We did our own thing on most of the stops, going on the red bus which collected us from the ship. People were very friendly and as I say loads going on More each day which you could please yourself as to whether you wanted to go to these things or not.

We will definitely go Fed Olsen again, and it was obvious why people go again and again Thank you to all the staff (and people we met) for a most enjoyable cruise. Less

Cabin review: Boudicca

Outside cabin with two portholes. Twin beds, loads of storage room, bath/shower. Tea/coffee making facilities in the cabin, kept fully stocked. Safe also in the room. TV also provided and desk.Room kept very clean.

Port and Shore Excursions

Beautiful city and easy to get around. People very friendly but it is known that Norway and Iceland are expensive - but we went back to the boat for lunch and back out again. Fab place.
