Love the P&O Caribbean cruises as you fly into the Caribbean rather than having to travel from USA so you get to visit extra islands. First time on Britannia, first impressions were fantastic and the cruise lived up to those first impressions. The embarkation was a breeze and we were first on the ship, there were lots of flight issues due to snow back home so we were some of the lucky ones to arrive on time, maybe if more flights had been in at the same time it would have taken longer. Main dining was very good, lovey food and occasionally service not always up to normal expectations. Are at Sindhu, Beach House and Glass House. All very good but the glass house was our favourite and would definitely eat there on next visit, thoroughly worth the few extra pounds per plate. Entertainment was good, House band and group were brilliant and saw lots of their performances. Main theatre was very impressive, the sets and performers were great but the story line on the main show was a bit weak. Would definitely travel to Caribbean on Britannia again but not in the aft balcony cabins. See cabin review.

Lovely Caribbean cruise, first time on Britannia

Cabin Review

Cabin C733
Chose an aft balcony cabin as have never been in one before and thought Caribbean would be the place to try. Unfortunately didn’t realise the spot would be such a problem... dirty carpet and balcony furniture. Couldn’t go out without footwear as would walk in soot, leaning on handrail marked clothes, soot landed on me when reading on a sea day. So felt I couldn’t comfortably use the balcony.

Chose this cabin as the balcony is much wider that others which would have been good if we could have used it.

The sofa gives extra space, you get and extra bedside table.

Would definitely chose a balcony with sofa again but just not at the back.
