Dumbing down a bit, but still okay!

Sail Date: Mar 2019

This was the end of 2018/2019 Winter Caribbean Season repositioning cruise, as Britannia returned to Southampton on the 29th March leaving Barbados on the 16th evening.

The price (at least for us) included a Thomas Cook charter flight from Gatwick to Barbados, transfer to ship and at the end of the voyage in Southampton, a free coach taking us back to Gatwick to collect the car. This also applied to those who had flown from Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Bournemouth. The transfers worked very well.

We paid the extra £149 pp to turn left at the top of the stairs when getting on the aeroplane and this was worthwhile but why they then charge for you to book your preferred seats defeats me.

Cabin Review

Cabin Obstructed Balcony

This was kept immaculate by our mostly invisible cabin steward. We never knew his name as no name card was left on the desk, but he did a fantastic job seeming to know our routine from the first day. A/C was fine and worked well. The shower room and w/c is small, but no different from other cruise lines.
