We have just come back from the British Isles on Boudicca and had an inside cabin on Atlantic Deck (4008) We found the cabin quite adequate for our needs but strange with no natural lighting but good for sleeping at night as it was so dark. There is loads of storage space in the cabin (more than we had in a balcony suite on Braemar). Had shower only but was quite ok for a quick wash and change before dinner. Tea/coffee/biscuits in cabin which was a nice touch (none on Braemar). Cabin was very clean and tidy. She is a very stable ship as we hit rough seas around Scotland and I was only sick once and not three days like on Braemar in the Canaries this May (beware it's not only the Bay of Biscay but the Atlantic as well!) I am sure you will enjoy your time on Boudicca.

On boudicca for seven weeks earlier this year,we had an outside cabin,good storage,tea making facilities,ok for space, inside cabins looked very nice. Recommend you dont have a cabin on main deck near laundertette under lido deck, we had fumes coming in through air con quite a lot they seem to have a problem there. Must praise Staff and quality of food onboard,restaurants are good. Also found the Spa staff excellent, spent lots of time and money there! Have a lovely holiday.

Having had an inside cabin on Boudicca in August we, like Smith,Cambridge, found it suited our needs and there were 3 of us in the cabin,there was plenty of space. Staff brilliant everywhere - hope you have a good time to.

By Alana Mills

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016. That is a staggering decline in anyones books and despite the troubles in Egypt a decline that no-one could have possibly anticipated.No one can deny that Egypt has had its troubles with the Egyptian revolution in 2011 leading to a coup and the leadership changing hands twice before the 2014 Leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took power. There have been a number o...

But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
