Felling more downmarket every year, despite getting more expensive!

Booked last year on Board, after a New year cruise, we had some concerns that P&O were cutting everything whilst trying to attract a different client group, but we decided to give it a chance! the result was a mixed bag:

The Good: Britannia is still an impressive ship and generally feels spacious, she handles roughish seas quite well. Lots of people made the effort on Celebration night to dress up and staff I the crows nest enforced the dress code when the short and flip flop wearing brigade arrived! The Caribbean in winter is a great getaway to enjoy the sun and beaches. The staff try hard and the supervisors do try to put things right if it goes wrong.The dance instructors were very good and enthusiastic with full classes.The Glass house stands out as the best eatery and the crows nest still retains it's calmness despite having stopped the savoury biscuits and now charging more than £10 for a gin and tonic at sea where no duty is paid!

The Bad: Britannia is looking tired and needs refurbishment, Staff levels are cut to the bone with long queues at bars and little table service on deck.

Cabin Review

Tired, only daily steward service same linen for 2 weeks, toilet seats need replacement as they are now discoloured and smell a bit ( this happens with resin toilet seats and is not a criticism of the hard working stewards who are visibly fewer in number!)
