Boudicca kicks off winter season at Portsmouth with cruise to Amazon

Europe is not the only destination you can set sail for from Portsmouth International Port. A boom in the cruise business means there are an even greater variety of destinations available, with a tour of the Amazon now added to an ever growing list.

Fred Olsen Cruise Line’s Boudicca has returned to the famous South Coast Port for her winter season, and the cruise to South America in January is just one of many holidays the ship will be taking passengers on over the next few months.

This is Boudicca’s third season based at Portsmouth International Port, with its impressive new facilities, including the stunning terminal, and excellent access from London through the Hindhead Tunnel.

Fred Olsen’s 2012 winter season is longer than last year, with a greater choice of cruises and destinations, offering passengers the chance to go further afield in comfort without the hassle of flying.

Boudicca’s first voyage of the season departed Portsmouth on Friday 12 October, with her 820 passengers taking a 23-night tour of the Mediterranean.

Martin Putman, port manager at Portsmouth International Port, says: “It is wonderful to think that passengers sailing from Portsmouth can now enjoy holidays that take them all the way to South America from our convenient South of England location. With such a varied programme of cruises on offer, we’re delighted to see Boudicca and her crew back for their third winter season”.
