P&O Cruises’ Britannia
This week our reviewer only spent a short amount of time onboard P&O Cruises’ new ship, Britannia, but came back with a wealth of positive points in their review.
“Nothing could quite prepare me entirely for all of the “WOW” moments and how many times I would alert my partner to “look at that””.
Here are her highlights:
Cabin: “I can honestly say, hand on heart I was blown away by the intricate attention to detail that had been shown within the whole design of the cabin, everything has its purpose, the lay out is great and it truly feels like a boutique hotel. The bed is really comfy, the Balcony more than adequate and the bathroom compact and comfortable.”
“With “The White Company” toiletries and “Douwe Egbert” coffee – what more could a girl ask for?”

Dining: Our reviewer found several surprises with the food onboard, mostly in ‘The Epicurean’. Two of the most interesting that RGale found were the entrees.
“We received an entree which can only be described as a cream of tomato soup in a frozen lollipop! This was a “Bloody Mary” and it was extraordinary! It was packed full of flavour and provided a great talking point for the evening.”
“Before we received our dessert we were served another entree – I was given (what can only be described as a frozen lipstick) I enjoyed a burst of strawberry & cranberry as I ate my “frozen lipstick” whilst my partner enjoyed what appeared to be a fried egg – which was actually a sweet delight, again another twist on modern cuisine.”
There were several other highlights to our reviewers dining experience, which can be seen in their full review.

Entertainment: “The Live Lounge had 2 young chaps singing recent release songs and then a disco in between, this was more “us” and we felt right at home, it held a great atmosphere as people were getting up on the dance floor when their favourite song came on and it was great to see everyone in their formal attire and some in their casuals too all on the same dance floor.”
“A few times couples had got up on the dance floor and performed a dance together (it felt like strictly come dancing at times) which was fab to get such a great variety of people and dress codes, the atmosphere was fantastic as everybody applauded the cruisers who can dance, the look of enjoyment on their faces was a lovely sight and everybody enjoyed watching them too.”

During their short stay onboard, our reviewer had several new experiences that they want to repeat. Not only were they impressed with the facilities on offer, but the appearance of the ship itself.
“I’m just counting down the days until P&O release the Britannia’s 2016 schedule to see where we may be sailing to.”
For their efforts, RGale gets Cruise Critic branded goodies, as do this week’s other three reviewers: suron, who wrote about their cruise to Dubai on MSC Orchestra, KatyQ, who wrote about Norwegian Jade on their cruise on Thomson Dream to the Montego Bay, and Jon44 who wrote about his cruise to Dubai on Costa Serena.
