"BOUDICCA" opens the new Cruise-Ships season in Liverpool





"BOUDICCA" opened the new cruise ship season in Liverpool today, the ship arrived at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal at 4.30 pm on a cold and wet day. "BOUDICCA" was built in 1973 by Wartsila in Finland as the ROYAL VIKING SKY, she was operated on around the world cruises by Royal Viking Line, when built she was just over 177 meters in length and 21.891 GT, in 1982 the ship was lengthened to 205 meters by A.G. Weser in Germany, her tonnage increased to 28.732 GT, she has capacity for 540 passengers and cruises at an average speed of 18 knots. Since 2005 the ship has been owned and operated by FRED OLSEN, today she is a classic passenger ship, considered to be a small ship she provides an intimate cruising experience that her passengers absolutely love it, I have spoken with some of her passengers that simply refuse to sail on different ships, particularly the new mega cruise-ships that can take up to 4000 passengers on board, FRED OLSEN has a reputation for delivering an excellent cruising experience. First three photos above were taken today from New Brighton under persistent rain, she is due back on several turnaround cruises in Liverpool this year, the other two photos shows the ship in the Algarve in July of 2011 and at Southampton on the 7.12.2007
