Britannia

Britannia - P&O Cruises

Pros

A real emphasis on quality food -- both eating and cooking it; as well as excellent nightlife.

Cons

For a ship this size, it lacks the adrenaline activities of U.S-equivalent size ships.

Bottom line

Britannia offers an upmarket, contemporary British cruise experience.

It's just fantastic to get away from the cold winter months of the UK .... to the warmth of the Caribbean sunshine.....and now on our 10th cruise with P & O we enjoyed it just as much as our first one....The flight on 'The Dreamliner' had complementary drinks as it was a few years ago, which we appreciated....The itinerary was well organised and the captain of the ship Paul Brown was informative and very approachable.... Neil Oliver the head of entertainment was his usual charismatic self....The waiters Savio and UJ entertained us with a excellent sense of humour as well as served us with delicious food fit for a king! The food in the Buffet area and for breakfast in our opinion had risen to a higher standard and the display was mouth watering .....Already going to book for next year....Thank you to all crew on board Britannia...'A Tonic to Our Very Soul'........xxxx Read Less

Having used Princess, Celebrity and Costa to cruise the Caribbean in the past via Miami and US Immigration, it is refreshing to cruise with P&O for the following reasons: Say goodbye to your luggage at Manchester Airport and don't see it again until it is delivered to your cabin. Charter flight to Barbados on TUI 787 Dreamliner. Exit the plane, board a bus at the bottom of the aircraft steps and be taken directly to the ship, no terminal to go through with customs etc. Fast check in at the dockside, then onto the ship. From plane to balcony in 50 minutes! As good as Princess and Celebrity are, we would probably have just arrived at US Immigration in 50 mins, then claimed our bags, be taken to a Hotel for the night, then bused to the ship the next day. It's a dream with P&O via Barbados! The ships currency is £ stirling and drinks are at fair prices a G&T around £4.50 and a bottle of wine £17 to £24 for a decent wine. One niggle, on Brittania, P&O's flagship, you have to go to reception to see your account statement, no on cabin TV display or printer in the Aitrium like Princess, a sister company have. We liked the minimalist design of Britannia, but felt the Aitrum should have live music every night, not just on some nights. The Crowsnest is a fabulous bar with great views. People did dress for formal night and even on smart casual evenings, most people made an effort, no shorts or baseball caps wandering around! The entertainment was good, as it usually is on cruise ships, with the ships cast putting on great shows. The Limelight Club is good, Gareth gates and Chesney Hawkes appeared when we were on board Jan '19. There is a cover charge and the atmosphere is that of a cabaret supper club. We also had dinner in the Epicurian restaurant, which was excellent and attracts a cover charge. The Sinduh restaurant was also very popular with those who enjoy spicy food. We also enjoyed sunbathing on the forward quiet deck, with its own pool. High density of sunbeds on all decks due to the Brits liking the sun in January. The staff did enforce the away for 20 mins and you loose your bed policy, great! The itinerary was fine, most Caribbean Islands are much the same, good beaches, sometimes taty ports. Usually there are taxi minibuses available off the ship, which are well organised and safe. They gather groups together and off you go. As a price guide, US$20 will get you a return trip to say Jolly Beach in Antigua, then you pay $10 for a sun bed and $10 for a umbrella. All together we had a very relaxing holiday and will return to Brittania for Christmas 2019. Read Less

Being able to fly direct from Belfast to Barbados to board Britannia was perfect and for my first cruise I wanted to be on a ship that I knew first hand from acquaintances was clean, friendly, helpful and whose website was very clear and informative for first time cruisers. I also felt it better for my first cruise to be on a British ship. I wasn't disappointed. The embarkation and disembarkation, travel to the ship and the complete stay was perfect. Everything ran smoothly and having an unexpected upgrade was the icing on the cake. The cruise visited 9 islands with only 4 sea days which was the perfect mix for me. Entertainment was very good and shows of a good quality. I would perhaps have liked a little variety across the two weeks though as the vast majority was the same on offer every day but it was good. Food variety was excellent and of a high quality. The only slight criticism was that the selection in the buffet while also excellent and good quality was a couple of times lukewarm or dried up but this was a very seldom observation and only affected maybe a couple of items from the vast array on offer.
