Just saying that there was little fun on this ship to be had apart from for the riotous kids who had taken over the swimming pool. A badly designed ship, with sharp elbows from fellow diners in the self service restaurant. Did they think that there would be nothing left for them? The cabin was good as was the cabin steward. The food was not so good, and the areas cordoned off and charged for ...

Two weeks on the transatlantic, repositioning, cruise gave us 8 beautifully restful sea days with very calm seas throughout. P&O run an extraordinarily smooth operation in every department whether it is embarkation, entertainment or restaurants. Without exception, all of the stewards, waiters, reception, croupiers et al were efficient, friendly and often went out of their way to go the extra mile. ...

After 15 years of cruising with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises ... the choice came up including Britannia for a transatlantic cruise to celebrate two 70th birthdays......assuming that the reputation of P&O was alive and well .. we decided to book with them ... even the cruise agent suggested that the standard passenger on P&O was more discerning and service minded... so we booked. From ...

Quick and speedy embarkation. We were wondering what the holiday would be like after reading previous reviews but we were impressed with the organisation, food, ship......maybe the service in the restaurants could have been a bit sharper and the overall cleanliness of the public areas could have had a bit more attention. However, our cabin and cabin housekeeper were first class. The ...

This was the maiden transatlantic voyage of the new Britannia, a new ship and only our second ever cruise. we had been really looking forward to it and in many ways we were not at all disappointed. 1 The ship is large, clean and bright, the facilities are extensive and many of the features and facilities are great. 2 We really enjoyed the food ( where we always dined in the restaurant in ...

My first time on P&O and most definitely my last. Having cruised many times on Royal Caribbean and also Princess Cruises my wife and I decided to give P&O a go as they had just launched the new Britannia. I can honestly say that was a big mistake. The ship is not in keeping with a new flagship that's for sure. Our first impression was it all looked rather dull to be honest the Atrium was ...

Lovely ship - quite understated decor. Voyage great - one sea day over the Bay of Biscay a little rolling felt a little sea sick but soon overcame it. Food very good - Buffet excellent, Dinner - did not offer cheese and biscuits always had to ask - unlike previous cruises on P&O whereby always offered. The service was a little rushed. Cabin fantastic. Top deck. Balcony Grab and ...

Having read quite a few negative reviews and comments about Britannia in her first few months of operation, we set off on our journey to Southampton with open minds, determined to try her for ourselves and to have a great cruise. We were not disappointed! There is a lot that P&O have got right with Britannia. First, let's get the little "niggles" out of the way. In our stateroom, grade HF ...

Two week cruise on Britannia from Southampton to Caribbean via Madeira, sailing on 23rd October 2015. Four days before sailing P&O advised the ship would call at Tenerife instead of Madeira - disappointing as we had been to Tenerife before but never visited Madeira. Embarkation: rather shambolic, P&O apparently employing a new system. Our check-in time at Ocean terminal shown on tickets as ...
