Good cruise
By Jackie Button on 07 May 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Either Britannia is starting to show her age or crew are less concerned generally. There also seemed to be some cost cutting once on board. Free parking was a joke – not enough CPS staff to cope (40 minutes queue)

My time on Britannia
By Mrs C, Briggs on 02 May 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

First time on Britannia for me, on the strictly come dancing cruise, while I enjoyed the overall experience, it’s not my favourite ship, prefer the smaller ones, not enough lifts to cope the amount of people, food great, nice cabin, liked the fact it had a shower door and not a silly curtain, that flaps about and wets the floor, could do with bedside lights for each bed, instead of one main one I think...

A departure from P & O’s distinctive architecture
By Brian Carter on 29 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

The lifts are a disaster, for a ship with so many passengers, many of whom are dependant on scooters, wheelchairs or walkers, they are inadequately small. Moreover, they are programmed to continue in either upward or downward direction. Entering a vacant lift just risen from a lower deck, with a lower deck destination, the choices are to ride up to the highest deck, then down, or wait for one coming down, hoping that a) it...

Caribbean and Azores
By David Spratt on 16 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Our first time on The Britannia and it was not without problems. The stairs/lifts are something to behold. We had been warned about these from our booking agent but in reality, it was far more of a problem than we would have imagined. There are no stairs in the centre of the ship and when trying to go to some decks the lifts do not stop there. For example we had our meals in the...

Tulips
By Martin Axon on 15 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Wanted to see the Bulb Fields and Keukenhof, which we did under our own steam. Pity P&O did not put on their own excursions to Keukenhof, a world class venue. Embarkation was excellent, seems to get slicker each time. Some new dishes on MDR menus but basically still the same over last few years, still lots of choice but some more new dishes needed on the menu cycles. Contrary to all the negative reviews on...

Caribbean and a back to back.
By Jenny Jefferson on 08 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Four weeks on Britannia and our first TA. A fantastic time, cruising the Islands. Our cabin balcony deluxe midships B deck, very comfortable and spacious. Complimentary Champagne and Belgium chocolates. Our lovely cabin steward Janeth kept our cabin immaculate and looked after us very well. Food in the Horizon and Pennisular Restaurants to be honest was mixed, always an extensive choice, Epicurian, Limelight, and Glass restaurants very good, as was service and attention to detail....

Well done Britannia
By Julie Raynes on 01 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Our second time on Britannia & apart from the rust on the balcony steelwork there was very little wear & tear from our first cruise back in Jan 2016 when Britannia was only 10 months old. However, we completed a feedback form during our cruise & commented on the lack of variety of food in the Horizon buffet, mainly the salad content & lack of carvery meats, to give them their due we were contacted...

Re Britannia!
By Peter Railton on 01 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Try finding your way around Britannia on arrival and you will find it very confusing. Try going from 11 – midships on 6. Improved signage is desperately needed on this ship. The food is very good though it could do to be extended in the Horizon. Attention to detail in the horizon often conflicts with reality eg the need to carry or not carry passports. No detail on where to meet on a trip was...

what is the question?
By Peter Coleman on 20 March 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Not successful due to both of us suffering for the last 10 days of the 14 days on board from bronchitis probably through the ships air-conditioning. I (Peter) suffered from diarrhoea for last 8 days of the 14 days on board. Included 1 day confined to the cabin. (Ship’s rules. No objection to the rules). The food was too rich for my normal diet. Shore excursion cost refunded without trouble. The ship’s performance was generally...

In the Cruise Mode
By Janice Roberts on 04 March 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

In the Cruise Mode… Planning a holiday is always charged with anticipation and expectation…especially when it’s your first time cruising. When we were invited by family to join them on the Britannia to the Caribbean in February, we were up for it! What we didn’t know was how serious the business of cruising is, from the places to catch WIFI on land to packing all our gear into 23 kilos for the flight …including all...

Fantastic First Cruise to the Caribbean
By Sue Stevenson on 25 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

After a 13 month wait, Britannia & P&O didn’t disappoint. My Daughter and I loved it all, our cabin, oh a balcony was such a good choice for all the pretty poets of call in the Caribbean, gorgeous food & such a vast choice each night, wonderful staff & service, great entertainment team & shows, love everything Britannia has to offer & can’t wait to sail on her again

Enjoyable Caribbean Cruise on Britannia
By Sarah Kilkie on 25 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, which was our first time on Britannia although we have cruised many times with P&O. We found our balcony cabin (with sofa) comfortable, spacious and with plenty of storage space. The large shower with glass screen was good – although we found the water pressure rather poor. The downside was the very small size of the balcony – very narrow and difficult for 2 people to sit out in comfort....

Trips
By Tracey on 25 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Lovely ship… fantastic food and service… but was forever looking at the prices of drinks and trips knowing I had to pay for it all at the end … the trips are very expensive and we were novice cruisers so not familiar with the trips in the countries visited … having a balcony and taking our own drinks was good advice

I had the most fabulous holiday. Being a solo traveller caused no problem at all. Made new friends and learnt so much. I want to go again!

Lovely Cruise
By Stephanie Pither on 11 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

Just come back from the Caribbean on Britannia, we couldn’t fault, the staff, the food and the cleanliness on this ship, we were made to feel like Kings and Queens. The evening entertainment was good. Lots of first time cruisers so all of the trips booked very quickly, and we couldn’t get on all of the trips we wanted, everything was really booked on day 1. We had a suite which was excellent with a...

Cruise 902a from 19th January 2019
By Geoffrey Hargreaves on 11 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

We have been on over 30 cruises with P & O and in our opinion it was the worst food we have ever had. Even after seeing the Restaurant Manager , the section Head Waiter and the Executive Chef it hardly improved. The entertainment was repetitive and hardly different from the last cruises we have been on. We will never go on Britannia again and we feel P & O are becoming too complacent.

Never been a fan of Britannia
By Ronald Craven on 11 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Britannia Reviews

This is not just a review of Britannia but the whole package. 1) On going back to the cabin on the first night one of our cases was 50 yards down in the centre of passage with padlock smashed off and no one could give me an answer as to how it got there. 2)Some of the waiters acted as though they had just come out of catering school, could not remember which meal belonged...
