I sailed with my Mum a few years ago on the Oceana and had a terrific, two-week Med cruise. The food was fantastic and we spent a fortune in the shops. There were a few things to do on sail days and I went to some very interesting talks. ... Read more

Fabulous cruise. Service and food was great. Great entertainment. 1. They need to sort out spaces for wheel chair people and mobile scooters, to sit in the theatre, as they blocked the emergency exit most nights on the right hand side. ... Read more

I surrendered to the pleas of my two young grandsons to go on "Britannia", despite my fears of the ship being too big and crowded. My fears were unfounded and I was delighted to say that the ship, because of her size, was one of ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise as we have had excellent holidays with P and O in past few years. Also we chose to sail from Southampton instead of a fly cruise as my husband is unable to fly due to a medical condition. We had previously ... Read more

Just back from a fantastic cruise on Britannia to the western med. for 12 nights. We booked this last year and, as we knew all the ports well, had no intention of getting off much. We actually only got off twice - in Lisbon and Cartegena ... Read more

This was my first cruise and after reading some of the reviews I was slightly worried- but to no avail - we both had an excellent time. The ship is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean . The atrium was a relaxing place to have a ... Read more

We booked this cruise as we have been on this ship twice before. The ship is now in desperate need of a re-fit. On arrival our cabin floor had not been vacuumed properly and the was dirt and fluff evident. The bathroom basin and bath ... Read more

Having been on Azura for our first cruise (bustle and the queues, lack of seats etc), we wanted to try a smaller ship and the Iberian destinations were the main interest. We were very pleasantly surprised with Oriana, having read the ... Read more

The Britannia ship is a very modern ship and while it may seem to lack character we believe it maybe trying to appeal to a less mature age group as most of the other company's new ships seem to be going that way. It's got lots of good ... Read more
