With Fred Olsen to Norway, Day I

Welcome to Fred Olsen Cruise Lines Boudicca! We left Liverpool yesterday evening and are now off the Hebrides on our way to Bergen for an article I’m writing for World of Cruising magazine

I was a bit apprehensive about this trip as she holds 800 passengers and I am used to ships with only 200!

However, I have been pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and friendliness of the crew. The meals have been superb, with open seating at breakfast and lunch. 

This morning I learned to play Bridge (I think!) and went to the Vistas lecture on Bergen and Norwegian life. I’m not one for entertainment on ships but I took in the show after the meal and really enjoyed it.

See you tomorrow!
