First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Booked Select with Britannia, including coach transfers from Glasgow with Inter Cruises as a family of 4, kids are 13 & 10. Journey down was excellent, coach was comfortable but could have done with wifi. Had email to say we would be delayed getting on the ship so expected to be delayed but fortunately our coach driver just carried on and arrived at port on time and we got on ship just ...

I chose this cruise due to its itinerary and duration -Baltic states, unfortunately so did at least several thousand other folks on at least 4 other cruise ships in the same ports everyday (8 ships in St Petersburg) so be prepared this itinerary is VERY popular. Britannia herself looks spectacular in port, there’s no dioubting that, but she’s a little too big for my usual choice of ship but the ...

We had to unfortunately cancel our original cruise because of health problems so this Cruise was very much last minute for us as we like to book well ahead to get the cabin we want. We enjoyed the Baltic the last time we were there 8 years ago and thought it would be good to visit again. Having read several reviews earlier we were a little apprehensive but were pleasantly surprised. Britannia ...

Where do the critical reviews come from?

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Having cruised Iceland and the Med we wanted to see the Baltic states and St Petersburg in particular. We were slightly put off by many critical reviews of Britannia but remembered critical reviews of previous ships which we enjoyed. The balcony cabin was compact but well designed and well looked after by our steward. The food ranged from good to excellent and the waiters were friendly and ...

We chose this cruise this cruise because we liked the itinerary its was my 60th Birthday I have always wanted yo visit St Petersburg .The negative part of P&O Britannia was the bar staff I found some very homophobic bar staff which made very rude gestures to my partner in the bar that as karaoke .I was not told by my partner until we returned to the UK. He never told me because I would have been ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise in order to visit countries we may not otherwise have seen and especially to see St Petersburg. This was our first cruise and we enjoyed it. The ship was impressive with a range of places to eat and drink, well appointed cabins and courteous staff. We do not go in for the kind of entertainment on offer on cruises but enjoyed a couple of interesting talks and went to the ...

Very Good Cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This wa a Strictly themed cruise although the reason we chose this cruise was the destination ports being none we had visited before. We have embarked at Southampton several times before and this was the longest time for getting onto the ship, I suspect because this was the largest ship we have ever been on. From arriving in the port by car to being in our cabin took almost two hours with a lot ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our second ever cruise ( previous Arcadia) but found the Brittania a bit too big and impersonal.We had to wait nearly 2.5 hours to board at Southampton , not a good start . We later found out that a gangway had broken down , but why wasn't this mentioned when we were waitng . The large number of passengers caused some queuing problems in St Petersburg with Russian immigration staff ...

We have travelled with P&O only once before on Ventura on a short break, and wanted to give them a go on a week long cruise on Britannia. We normally travel with Princess and I have to say they would still be my favourite. However, embarkation was swift and first impressions of the ship were impressive. The central atrium is very pretty and whilst we didn't spend a great deal of time there, ...

We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary but also because we had enjoyed our previous cruise with P&O onboard Ventura. We were a little put off by the low satisfaction rating on cruise Critic however were willing to take the chance based on our positive experience with Ventura. Unfortunately we found that many of the complaints we had read about Britannia turned out to be quite ...
