We sailed from Newcastle on 2nd August on Boudicca on what was to be a wonderful experience exploring the Arctic. Having sailed on Boudicca twice before, we knew that we would be happy with the ship and apart from the cabin being in much need of a refurb, we were not disappointed. The crew on Boudicca are the most friendly we have ever encountered on our 30+ cruises and the food was excellent as always. The itinerary was wonderful., the highlight for us being our 3 ports of call in Greenland- Nanortalik, Narsak and Qaqortoq. Never having been close up and personal with glaciers and icebergs, we both marvelled at the sights we saw. Fortunately for us, the weather was pretty good and the sun shone at the rights times. I would thoroughly recommend an Arctic cruise to anyone who cruises for the scenery and wildlife.

Cabin Review

Inside Cabin
Cabin I 3061
We were disappointed with our cabin. We booked an inside on this particular cruise because we knew that it would light at night in some of our ports of call and I can't sleep in daylight.
The cabin was poorly laid out with little room to move around and the shower was in definite need of replacing.
Despite the cabin steward's best efforts, the shower try always looked grim and many of the shower tray tiles came loose.
