Despite the odds, a wonderful cruise! by Endymion69

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
A wonderful cruise with good weather when it mattered, on a comfortable ship with great crew, fantastic food and interesting companions, around the Canaries, Maderia and Gibraltar. Can life get any better?

Our first cruise and delighted... by meandsue

Sail Date: /
Our first cruise and delighted we chose Fred Olsen. Although a bit dated, the Boudicca is like an old country house hotel. The food and housekeeping services were excellent. All Ports were visited and we also had a detour to get up close and personal with an iceberg. The captain had a great sense of humor which fellow passengers said was uncommon. We enjoyed this cruise so much we have booked another with Fred Olsen this time on the Black Watch

Scotland and Orkney Islands by Bangor1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise was disappointing in that all but two of the port stops where by Tender and as I need to use a walking stick and have difficulty going down steps and have a problem with stability getting to and from the Tender.

There was also a considerable number of tour cancellations apparently due to a lack of numbers.

On one of the port calls (Invergordon) the tour was in two parts which did not allow sufficient time a either to enjoy the experience.

The last port of call was cancelled due to the weather which prevented the use of the Tender.

Apart from the above the size of the boat (880 pax) which was only partially utilised (540 pax) and enabled one to establish many friendships. The crew was also excellent and are a credit to Fred Olsen Cruises.
