So many excellent port destinations
The flights & embarkation were very well organised & our coach driver from Barbados airport to the port provided us with lots of interesting information. It was great getting straight off the plane & onto the coach without having to go through the airport.
Britannia is extremely large & can be a little tricky to get around due to it's slightly odd layout but it is elegant & kept immaculately clean. Yes the lifts were often too busy but we were happy to use the stairs.
We had an inside cabin on deck 11 which was spacious & well equipped with a really big comfortable bed & was extremely quiet & we were well looked after by Kris our cabin steward.
There are a More number of restaurants to choose from. We were on freedom dining in the Peninsular restaurant for dinner. We opted for shared tables eating with a different group of people each evening which we enjoyed. We never had to wait for a table. I am vegetarian & was provided with a special menu but had to choose my meals a day in advance. The food was always varied & of good quality. We often ate breakfast & sometimes lunch or afternoon tea in the Horizon buffet restaurant. This was normally busy but we always found a table & there was a variety of food available. One night we paid a supplement to eat in Sindhu. The food was excellent & the whole experience really enjoyable.
The evening entertainment was a slight disappointment to us. In the two weeks the show team only performed on 4 evenings. The sound quality in the theatre was pretty bad. On the other hand the band Pulse were excellent.
We found that it was always easy to find sunbeds even on sea days as long as you didn't want to be next to one of the pools. The staff did take measures when they found sunbeds being reserved & not used. There are also plenty of chairs & sofas around to relax on.
We booked P&O trips in Aruba, Antigua & Dominica all of which we enjoyed. We made our own arrangements in the other ports. One of the best parts of this cruise was the number & variety of ports.
Overall this was an extremely enjoyable holiday which we would recommend. Less
