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.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
