Britannia Cruise Review by GrannieB54
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Norwegian Fjords
Due to strong winds we were unable to embark straight away as it was dangerous to use the air bridge but we were kept informed and I actually boarded 15 minutes before my allotted time. First time using a mobility scooter but very helpful staff helped me to board by a conventional gangplank. No trouble disembarking, off within 15 minutes. Luggage found and out of the terminal within 30 minutes.
I did not do any organised trips as it was my first cruise on my own, since losing my husband and having to us a mobility scooter.
Self serve Horizon restaurant has plenty of staff wearing "Happy to Help aprons" and they were indeed helpful (although wanted to give me more food than I wanted) carried it to the table for me.
All areas are accessible to disabled travellers and if you want to eat in the other restaurants they will park and bring it back afterwards.
The Eric Lanlard afternoon tea in the Epicurean is to die for. The glad house has amazing wines (Selected by Ollie Smith). Try a wine flight if you want to sample.
These is plenty of seating even on a sea day it wasn't hard to find a place.
Overall a beautiful ship with absolutely wonderful crew.

FlamBook your own trip on the Flam railway before you go. It's half the price of the ship tours. Plenty of areas to walk and there is board on the way to the station with different trails to walk with the approximate time it takes.View All 199 Flam Cruise Port Reviews
