Broking sources have reported that former Fred.Olsen cruise ship ‘Boudicca’ has arrived at Aliaga, Turkey, for recycling.
She was sold by Fred.Olsen last year together with her sister ‘Black Watch’ to become accommodation vessels at Pendik, near Tuzla, Turkey, but these plans look to have falling through.
‘Boudicca’ was built in Helsinki for Royal Viking Line in 1973 and was lengthened in 1984.
She also operated for Norwegian Cruise Line, Birka Line, Princess Cruises, Star Cruises, Hyundai and Iberojet before being purchased by Fred.Olsen in 2005.
The fate of the ‘Black Watch’ is thus far unknown.
