Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ 880-guest Boudicca will be entering drydock at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany in November 2015, in preparation for the forthcoming 2016/17 cruise season.

Boudicca will arrive in Bremerhaven on Nov. 18 2015 from the Port of Tyne, Newcastle, following a 16-night cruise, and will undergo various engineering work, general refurbishment and interior and exterior painting.

During the drydock, Boudicca will also see 28 cabins on Lido Deck 7 fitted with terrace balconies. These new terrace balcony cabins will extend out 1.2 metres from the ship’s bulkhead.

Mike Rodwell, Managing Director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We experience extremely high demand for balcony cabins across our fleet, in particular on a smaller-sized ship such as Boudicca, and our new terrace balcony cabins are an innovative response to this.

“We installed the new terrace balcony cabins on sister ship Black Watch during her dry dock last Autumn, and these have proved very popular with our guests.”
