We had read the mixed reviews about P&O and decided to try Britannia out because of the good prices sailing from Southampton and because it was a new larger ship. It was probably the most straight forward journey into a ship we had ... Read more

Recently arrived back from Azura cruise 21 Jan-4 Feb 17. The cruise was generally fine but there is much that can be improved. The 65% reviewers approval rating is a fair assessment. We had a bad start to our holiday on the flight to ... Read more

Chose this cruise simply because we wanted to visit the Caribbean without having to fly. We have previously cruised with Royal Caribbean, Princess and Celebrity, but were told by other cruisers that "P&O is the best" so ... Read more

On arrival in Barbados the organization by P&O was excellent, straight off the plane onto coaches and then onto the ship. We arrived at embarkation and within twenty minutes we were onboard Britannia. The ship is beautiful, our balcony ... Read more

This was our second P&O cruise, the first being a four day mini-cruise which failed to meet nearly all of our expectations. So it was with some trepidation that we booked a two week Caribbean cruise (Dec 2016). Flights were with ... Read more

I'm writing this because I've tried to put it on the P&O Website but both times it says "an error has occurred" !! Overall: Oceana has a small-ship feel about her. She is beautiful in her own way, not overly glitzy and ... Read more
