What a beautiful ship was amazing ,our cabin on b deck was to a very high standard and the cabin steward went out of his way to help us . I work a lot of hours and so we decided to take our two children out of school and pay the fine we had such a good family holiday the reef was brilliant and we had to literally drag the kids out on a night .we spent a lot of time round the pool , the pools were very deep even for a good swimmer the service round the pool was brilliant . During the evening we spent our time trying out the bars and restaurants we never struggled to get a seat together ,we tried the sinhdu and the beach house both were very very good . There are a couple of things that let the holiday down the lifts were terrible they were very small and took you forever to get anywhere for such a new modern ship they were prehistoric . Another let down was the it was just like been in a floating care home I would say the average age was 70 and we felt awkward some of these old people had obviously never seen children it was like been on chitty chitty bang bang and waiting for the kid catcher, the rudeness of some of the elderly people was unbelievable I felt looked down upon as if we shouldn't be there because we're a young family also when goin in the theatre an the restaurant it was like a car park for mobility scooters ! But I just don't understand if you don't like children why not go on a adult only ship !! After a while u learn to ignore this and we managed to have a really fantastic holiday to rember. I also paid £200 to do the cookery school with James Martin and Antonio this was really worth every penny. Read Less

Booked a balcony cabin for maiden voyage of the overhyped Britannia.This was our 10th cruise. This ship will damage P&Os brand image if the poor standards continue. Bad layout of ship caused lots of conjestion and pinchpoints in many areas, a theatre that only accomadates a third of the passengers in narrow sweaty seats, the atriums wow factor consists of a 3 storey high lampshade which changes colour now and again with a few seats underneath with passengers sat waiting for some entertainment which never happens. Ive had more fun in a hospital a&e ward. Midships staircase stops at deck 7 so if like us your cabin is on deck 8 you have to walk to forward or aft stairs or suffer trying to squash into the smallest lifts at sea. This encouter with P&O has convinced us to cruise with Celebrity Cruises in the future. Read Less
