Our first time on Britannia. We fancied a no fly for a change and this 7 day cruise fitted our requirements to hopefully get somewhere warm. We were not disappointed as weather turned out great most of the time, being risky at this time of ... Read more

Britannia is one of P & O newest ships & I think I was expecting a bit more of the 'Wow' factor & was a bit disappointed. From the outside it looks very 'Grand' but falls short on the inside, but although very swish etc. just ... Read more

We did this cruise as we wanted to do the Norwegian Fjords, & booked a Superior Deluxe Balcony Cabin ( C324 ) on 12 Deck. Our cabin was very comfortable, & we didn't have any problems with it. The embarkation was the best we ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Britannia and, after a couple of years, it's still as good as ever. Everything is still up together, the food was just as good and the staff are still friendly and efficient. We still love the ship! ... Read more

Quick embarkation but the rude lady at check in desk spoilt the experience. Once on board we were very impressed by the ship itself; yes the lifts were busy but we used the stairs to burn off some of the calories that we consumed with ... Read more

We love Azura and Ventura and wanted to see for ourselves what the Brittania had to offer and it was amazing. The Atrium is spectacular and so lovely to sit with a coffee and relax. Embarkation took 10 minutes, our cabin was so ... Read more

We were away or a friends 50th. Half of our party had been on a previous PO cruise to Bruges and had a wonderful time, so we were all looking forward to what we saw as a taster cruise. Sadly as this is more affordable than the longer ... Read more

This was a 2 night taster cruise to Bruges. I chose this as we had seen Britannia in St Maarten in February while it was moored next to us and wanted to see what it was like to stay onboard. This is a large cruise ship with 3100 ... Read more

To be together with some of our family, this was our fourth P&O cruise. The best of all on Britannia was the great service received during breakfast and supper at the Oriental and Peninsular Restaurants. An absolute pleasure. This ... Read more

What I like to do on a cruise: I don't drink, gamble or am interested in speciality dining. I don't like to lay in the sun but like a dip in the pool and to spend an hour or two reading in the shade. I Iike to see as much of the ... Read more

This was our first cruise and it won't be our last. We were a bit worried about driving to the dock not knowing where to go but it was well marked and you just followed the traffic. We were met by the porters who then took our cases and ... Read more

We had been on a Costa cruise in January 2015 in the Far East and it was a disaster! It was our first cruise and put us off cruising again. We decided to have another go as we felt that things must get better. We chose P&O as it was a ... Read more

We chose a 7 day cruise to the Norwegian Fjords to sample Nordic Culture and the scenery. The Itinarary of Stavanger, Flam, Olden and Bergen did not disappoint, nor did the weather which for the beginning of May was fantastic, with ... Read more

This is our third time on Britannia with our young children and we had another great cruise. Whilst the layout of the ship can be confusing, Britannia is modern and clean with comfortable cabins and a great kid's club. The highlights for ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise as we wanted to visit Gibraltar and Monaco. We had a Balcony Cabin on Deck 15. There are no stairs midships so if you want to go up or down one deck you had to wait for a lift or walk to the front or ... Read more

We had some future cruise credit to use before December, thanks to a norovirus infected cruise on the Azura to the Carribean. Lots of people on board and despite the queue to enter the embarkation centre, P and O should take some credit ... Read more

Have cruised with P & O for past few years, and found them of good quality with great entertainment at a very good price. POSITIVES: Balcony cabin was great, staff were good, especially our dining room staff who were best we have ... Read more

We like this ship since it has the Crystal Room as a dedicated ballroom every evening, and there are also dance classes held there on sea days during the daytime. The dance floor is not as large as the Cunard ships, but it does have a ... Read more

The embarkation for us was quite good. We arrived earlier than our time, and only had to wait a few minutes before our group was called. The cabin was nice. Nice neutral decor. The entrance to the dressing area/bathroom is quite small. ... Read more

We cruise often, 30+ with different cruise companies. We find embarkation on PO so slow and drawn out, sitting for hours on end with a letter in your hand waiting to hear yours to be called, or turn up about 2.30pm and you don't have to ... Read more

We had cruised on Britannia around Caribbean in January, and had a wonderful time, so were a bit apprehensive of taking a short break just over to Bruges. However, it was my friend's 60th, so the 15 of us joined her. We had a great time. ... Read more

Looking for a holiday during the school holidays we noted 3 P&O cruises leaving the same day and chose the Atlantic Islands cruise because we preferred the itinerary. The best other option was themed a Strictly Come Dancing cruise ... Read more

We wanted a last minute holiday and as Britannia embarked from Southampton this was hassle free as no flights to coordinate with transfers etc. Embarkation ran very smoothly and was very well organised. Once on board we were able to go ... Read more
