Boudicca • Prices from $5,741
Join Fred. Olsen on a very special, once-in-a-lifetime holiday in 2017 and experience the thrill of the America’s Cup – the world’s most exhilarating and prestigious yacht race – in beautiful Bermuda. This historic nautical extravaganza will test the skills of the world’s best sailors – including Britain’s Olympic hero Sir Ben Ainslie – to the limit as they race their multi-million dollar catamarans at speeds of up to 50mph; and you’ll be perfectly placed to watch the drama unfolding on the balmy blue waters.
Furthermore, with a rare, three night extended stay in Hamilton, you’ll have plenty of time to experience the best that the gorgeous paradise island of Bermuda has to offer. You can while away the hours soaking up glorious sunshine on the soft-pink sands of some of the world’s best beaches; snorkel incredible coral reefs alongside colourful tropical fish; and admire the astonishing subterranean stalactites and stalagmites of the Crystal and Fantasy Caves. Don’t miss the historic 18th century Royal Naval Dockyard, which today is home to shops, restaurants, galleries and many other attractions; and be sure to wander along bustling Front Street, which is where you’ll find Hamilton’s finest restaurants and bars.
Either side of your unforgettable call to the oldest British Colony, you’ll also visit a collection of wonderful Portuguese islands and cities. Before sailing to Bermuda, Boudicca will stop in Leixoes, for tours to delightful Oporto; magnificent Madeira, where gorgeous gardens and sweet wines await; Ponta Delgada, from where you can visit the stunning Sete Cidades crater lakes; and the city of Horta on Faial Island. On your journey home, you’ll divert to the Azores once again, visiting Lajes das Flores, where rugged landscapes interspersed with lakes and waterfalls beg to be explored; and pretty Praia da Vitoria, which is home to a number of interesting historic structures, including the 15th century Igreja Matriz de Santa Cruz.
