  3. Britannia
After 20 cruises with various companies including P&O this was our most disappointing we had a balcony cabin (the shelf the two chairs and table provided could not be used together.) on the plus side the cabin though smaller than some was spotless and the cabin steward was brilliant. The food in the self service restaurant was hit and miss sometimes cold and dry other days very good, we gave up using the freedom dining restaurant because of the often 40 minute waiting time many of the bar staff were to put it bluntly rude when we asked one member of staff what was the matter was his reply was that many of the crew did not like the ship and were not happy and wished to be off. We will sail with P&O again but not on the good ship Britannia. Britannia rules the waves we think not !!!!.

The not so good ship Britannia
