View from our balcony.
Seville - a must-see city.

This was our second trip aboard the Britannia and chose the ship rather than the destinations because we loved or first cruise on her. She is a fantastic ship with all the modern facilities you would expect from a floating hotel.

My wife and I love the entertainment on board and enjoyed some very professional acts that kept us laughing and dancing for most of the trip.

We also love good food and were not disappointed by the variety available on board. We had a terrific Indian meal in the Sindu an amazing wine and food experience in the Glass House. Although these restaurants make a cover charge for the meals the cost is minimal and no where near the prices you would pay ashore.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe with balcony

Cabin was noisy at night because of proximity to kitchen service area.

Shower was very good and the bed was very comfortable.

Balcony was covered but still sunny.

Port Reviews


A lovely city but a long coach journey with only a little time to visit the sights.


One of the best experiences of the cruise but watch your bags - there are a lot of pick pockets here.

Florence (Livorno)

Livorno is not a place to visit so stay on board and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Cartagena (Spain)

A gem of a place to visit. It is so clean and welcoming - a big change from Rome. It has many shops and restaurants and has a lot of history. Dont miss the Roman amphitheatre and climb up to the castle if you can as the view is stunning.


We have visited Gibraltar before so once seen not worth a second visit.
