Second time on Britannia

Review for Britannia to Mediterranean

After a lumpy Bay of Biscay crossing, the rest of the cruise was excellent. The ship was going into dry dock at the end of this cruise for a spruce up. We had sailed on Britannia before so we knew our way round the ship. The lifts are still a bit of a problem, mainly as at either end of the ship they are smaller and often full at busy times. Considering the wear she has had, I thought she ...

I read all the reviews before deciding on a holiday so only fair that I should leave my own objective review. This trip was our first time on Britannia and we had a fantastic trip. The food choices were really good, we ate normally in the Oriental restaurant and were very well looked after with the waiters always offering more if we wanted it or to change things if they though we weren't keen. We ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Chose this cruise because of the ports and the time of year. First three days were excellent then the Norovirus outbreak god out of hand and pools were emptied, buffet was closed, all venues on the ship were single entry with staff enforcing the use of hand sanitisers. Loungers were put away mid afternoon to scrub the decks. Handrails and lift buttons could not be touched. Menus, condiments, etc ...

October 2018 and this was our 12th cruise with P&O. This time we boarded Britannia on Friday 12th October 2018 on a two week cruise to the Mediterranean. We stayed overnight at our preferred hotel, New Place Hotel , Shirrell Heath, Southampton where we got a taxi to the port. We always arrive early prior to our designated boarding time as we usually get on earlier. This was our 3rd trip on ...

We wanted to visit Madeira and Lisbon so we chose this canary island cruise and booked one year in advance.The sailing was smooth and the cabins were of a reasonable size.The ship was in good condition and clean.The problem was that there were too many people and this made it very difficult to get into a lift.We were on level 11 so needed the lift.This meant waiting a long time to find space in ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

After a first and very successful cruise on Ventura in 2017, my husband and i were immensely looking forward to our 2nd cruise on Britannia in October 2018. We read the reviews; just as we had for Ventura; but dismissed them as there had been bad reviews of Ventura too, but we'd not had a single issue (apart from a minor dislike of the buffet restaurant which we found ...

Hi, Hopefully you will not be board by the length of this but felt it would be useful to give some hits and misses for the cruise I have just been on. The sea was a little rough on the way to the Canaries which personally I think is ok - sick bags were at the ready on the stairs and hallways! It was sad to hear over the tannoy of so many medical emergencies. One was at about 11:30 on the ...

First went on P&O canberra in the 80s' but this new one is not as good as the top class ones we have been on. RCI, Princess, and Holland America are the premier league ones.This new ship is very drab.The passengers who all deserve a holiday age in 80+ if you do not have a wheelchair,scooter,walking wheel frame or walking stick you are in the minority.This is meant to be a family friendly ship? No ...
