We decided to go on the Britannia to celebrate a 30th Birthday. We didn’t know what to expect because we heard that the entertainment on board was more focused on older people, we have been with Disney many times besides the fact of me being an entertainer and performer for disneyworld and Disney Cruise Line for 8 years. Also, we have cruised with Royal Caribbean and we knew we wouldn’t find a climbing wall, a flow rider or ice skating on this ship but the reality is that we really wanted to cruise on the beautiful and famous Britannia, so we gave it a try.
To start with, the ship is one of the most elegant ones I’ve ever seen, the deco and furniture are just fantastic so I couldn’t stop loving it since I got on board. Obviously when you have been on other cruise ships it’s hard not to compare one with the other ones, so I decided to compare it with a different ship that also leaves from Southampton, in this case I compared my experience with the Navigator of the Seas by Royal Caribbean. This is very difficult because both ships are very different in many ways but I liked more some things about the Britannia and I liked more other things about the Navigator.
Let’s start with the dining experience.
The cabin was fantastic, even when we were not very happy about the restricted view, a mistake made by our agent, the great housekeeper, the great tv entertainment, and the comfortable bed, at some point we forgot about having a restricted view.
One of the most beautiful towns I’ve ever seen. The speed boat and the train tours are the best way to explore this fantastic place.
Good shopping and place to walk around.
The icebar, the fish market and the shops around make it a great stop.
