Fred. Olsen's Boudicca.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched seven new exotic cruises for the 2017/2018 season on board the Boudicca and Black Watch.   

The new cruises will give groups the chance to visit places including Zanzibar, Mozambique, South Africa, Cuba, Australia and Malaysia.

The ‘Indian Ocean Islands & Zanzibar’ fly-cruise is a 14-night stay on the Boudicca in December 2017, which will begin with an overnight stop in Port Louis in Mauritius.

From there the cruise will travel on to the Seychelles and Zanzibar. Groups will then spend Christmas Day and Boxing Day at sea before docking in Port Reunion, home to volcanic landscapes, dense forests and waterfalls.
