Fred. Olsen looks new home for Boudicca

Date Posted: 04 Dec 2008
Category:
Fred. Olsen could be looking for a new home for its Boudicca ship in future, it has emerged.

The ship currently sets sail from Langton Docks in Bootle, but its owner is looking for a more attractive point of departure than the docklands backdrop afforded there.

Nigel Lingard, managing director of the British operator, told Liverpool's Daily Post that he would like to stay in Merseyside - particularly if availability arose at the Pier Head cruise berth.

At present, that doesn't exist - which is causing Fred. Olsen to consider other options.

"We are […] reluctant to commit her to Liverpool if our only option is to base her in the Langton Dock," Mr Langdon said.

Boudicca will be cruising out of Leith in 2009, offering summer voyages to Norway, Iceland, the Baltic and the North Cape.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
