Butlin's at Sea, Nearly

This was our first cruise with P&O though we have done eight transatlantic crossings, seven on the QM2 and one on the Victoria, so we were somewhat intrigued as to what lay ahead of us. Our embarkation was smooth ...

Won't sail Royal Caribbean again.

We choose Royal Caribbean because we have previously cruised P&O and although we had a wonderful time we fancied trying something with a bit of a younger crowd with us being in our 30's. Embarkation was simple 20 ...

Britannia - very average

A Lot has been written about this ship, and I will try to be brief. The cabins are nice but balconies are too small. We had our son and family in next cabin, so had divider open, and it was difficult to move with ...

Not as good as I expected but still good.

Decided to treat my wife to a trip on Britannia during its Maiden year. It was quite expensive as had to book early and that meant I had expectations that it would be as good as Celebrity cruise I did in the Greek ...
