First time cruisers. We normally travel then have a week or to chill on a beach, by a pool so this was quite the exception for us. We can’t compare this cruise to any others, just review it on its merits, and the people we met along ... Read more

Hi everyone, my husband and I thought we would take the time to write a review as we don't like complaining about our holidays, especially our cruises, as we normally really enjoy them, however, on this instance, I have to say, if you are ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a taster, having wanted to go on one for a while. We went for a short break just to see what it would be like. I'm glad to say we were not disappointed. We had a fantastic time, the weather was much better than ... Read more

Quick embarkation but the rude lady at check in desk spoilt the experience. Once on board we were very impressed by the ship itself; yes the lifts were busy but we used the stairs to burn off some of the calories that we consumed with ... Read more

We had read the mixed reviews about P&O and decided to try Britannia out because of the good prices sailing from Southampton and because it was a new larger ship. It was probably the most straight forward journey into a ship we had ... Read more

I thought I'd do a detailed review of our recent Britannia cruise, especially as there were so many mixed (and rather short) reviews about this ship, which were starting to make us wonder if we had made the right choice. Overall, iit was ... Read more

Recently arrived back from Azura cruise 21 Jan-4 Feb 17. The cruise was generally fine but there is much that can be improved. The 65% reviewers approval rating is a fair assessment. We had a bad start to our holiday on the flight to ... Read more

This was our second P&O cruise, the first being a four day mini-cruise which failed to meet nearly all of our expectations. So it was with some trepidation that we booked a two week Caribbean cruise (Dec 2016). Flights were with ... Read more
