Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Port Louis to Colombo aboard Boudicca.

Enjoy abundant tropical sunshine, marvel at simply breathtaking sights and discover unforgettable experiences galore on this indulgent, fortnight-long island-hopping adventure in the Indian Ocean – an incredible way to end the year.

Boudicca will be waiting for you in Port Louis, where you can experience the best of Mauritius before setting sail. Perhaps enjoy a taste of the Mauritian lifestyle in the city, visiting the vibrant central market, exploring the local Stamp Museum and sampling delicious teas in the beautiful Chinese Pagoda; or take a tour to bask in the island’s natural beauty. The south of the island is a showcase of wonders, including the Trou-aux-Cerfs Volcano and the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes. A call into Port Reunion follows, for the chance to marvel at the sweeping volcanic landscapes, dense forests and tumbling waterfalls of Reunion Island, before celebrating New Year’s on board as you sail to the stunning Seychelles. An abundance of the archipelago’s ‘must-do’ experiences await you during two days on Praslin Island and a full day on Mahé. Perhaps head into the UNESCO-listed tropical forest of Vallée de Mai to see huge Coco de Mer nuts and rare Black Parrots; and tour to Moyenne Island by boat to encounter famous giant land turtles. Of course you have your pick of paradise beaches too, such as Anse Lazio and Cote d’Or. That’s all yours to enjoy before sailing by Silhouette Island at sunset – an awe-inspiring spectacle.

Then in the Maldives, a slender chain of gorgeous coral islands, you’ll visit two incredible destinations on consecutive days. First you’ll experience the Maldives’ energetic side with a call into Malé. Sprawled across an entire islet, the small, yet bustling capital feels like a bite-size version of the vast metropolises found in mainland Asia, boasting corridor-like streets lined with tall tower blocks, a busy port and pretty parks. Explore the city at your leisure, or perhaps tour to the tropical island resort of Kuda Bandos and feel the soft sand between your toes as you stroll along the picture-perfect white beaches. You’ll also sample the laid-back life at Uligamu, where you can observe the friendly locals going about their day-to-day business, browse the markets, or head to the beach to relax on the soft sands and dip your toes in the warm, crystal clear waters. Your exotic holiday will conclude with a relaxing day at sea. Enjoy all the facilities and activities on board Boudicca before reaching Colombo, from where you’ll journey back home.
