In short P and O have sacrificed public space on this ship to cram more cabins in. I've never ever been on a ship (in over 20 years of cruising) where there have been such small public rooms, entertainment venues and bars, making getting a ... Read more

The good points. Service with the stewards and waiters good as always, better than Cunard. Food reasonable, better than Cunard in the self service. The destinations were great but P+O didn't build them The ship does well in ... Read more

Britannia’s maiden cruise to the Baltic didn’t get off to the best start, with the visit to Kristiansand being cancelled due to the weather conditions. She did, however, handle those rough and windy Baltic conditions with ... Read more

Cruise Review. Embarkation; Coach from Leeds = Less stress. Still a good wait to embark, but only to be expected for that amount of passengers. Although it seemed to go faster through security than other cruises. Cabin; Pleasant. ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised P&O several times, check in was slow, with poor organization. Cabin was nice and clean, but far too small. Food on board was great. Buffet was reasonable. Food was very similar each day with small changes in ... Read more

This was our tenth cruise, but first with P&O and we particularly chose it because it included some nice capital cities, such as Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki, Tallinn, Bruges and St Petersburg overnight. It also included a ... Read more

Britannia is a great ship, but with a few little niggles. Walking around the ship you get a sense of just how large she is, especially walking down the cabin corridors. She is beautifully equipped with restaurants, coffee lounges, bars, ... Read more

This was the first time we have travelled with P & O and,regrettably, it will be the last. We booked this cruise because it had the itinerary at the time of year that we wanted, not because of the ship. Reading the reviews (after ... Read more

We wanted to spend some time with my brother & sister-in-law, they live near Bournemouth, we live in Canada so we thought a short cruise out of Southampton would be perfect. This ship is 19 years old and frankly should be scrapped it ... Read more

We have only been on one cruise prior to this one and that was on the Royal Carribean "Adventure of the Seas" to the Med. That was a truly amazing experience so my review of Oceana is based on a comparison with our last cruise. Prior to ... Read more
