We have sailed with P&O many times (10+) before, and we choose this particular cruise because 1. the cruise was over some ones birthday, 2. it visited a few new (to us) islands and a few old ones we have not visited for some time, and 3. to see what Britannia was all about. And we wanted to see frigate birds, flying fish, turtles and dolphins again, and hoped to see a whale again (alas none seen).
Although the weather was a best mixed, this didn’t spoil the experience when the sun shone it was hot, strong and good, when it showered we found shelter (sometimes) as usual it was warm rain. Except for one day at Dominica where there was occasional heavy rain and prolonged periods of light rain and a cracking electrical storm as we left port. Most of the islands are so green because of the rainfall, so hey “No Problem”!
All in all the islands we had visited before had hardly changed from our last visit except that there were a few new buildings, the taxi drivers are cheekier than before and many prices (beer etc.), had risen slightly. The new islands where delight to explore as each has its own little way of doing things.
