The 880-passenger Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines cruise ship, Boudicca, made its first-ever call to Southwold in Suffolk, located on the coast of the South East of the United Kingdom.
Boudicca anchored off the coast of Southwold, where a tender made it ashore to the River Blythe but unfortunately due to unfavourable weather condition the decision was made to divert the cruise ship to Harwich International Port in Essex.
The quintessentially British seaside town of Southwold is not far from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ head office in Ipswich. The town features an award-winning pier, busy harbour, historic lighthouse and a beautiful beach and traditional beach huts.
Boudicca is currently on an eight-night ‘Wildlife of English & Scotland’ cruise for adults only which departed Liverpool on 21 July 2017.
A formal plaque presentation took place on the beach at Southwold to celebrate the maiden call of Boudicca. Present was the Mayor of Southwold, Councillor Matthew Horwood and Rachael Jackson, the Public Relations Manager at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
