Review summary

A great cruise shame about not stopping at Guernsey and when we first went on Britannia we were told the lifts were for disabled people not for able bodied people. Shame about disembarkation but has it put me off certainly not


5 out of 5
We arrived a bit early due to good traffic and were able to embark almost straight away.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was fantastic wether you chose the buffet or the restaurant

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The bingo was fantastic and the callers were great. Henry remembered my name by the end of the week. Everyone was very helpful and always smiling


5 out of 5
The shows were fantastic. The ventriloquist was brilliant. I have not laughed so much for a long time. Just wish the music show was more pop music than musicals. A few people got up and walked out don't think it was what they were expecting

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service was great. The staff numbers dropped quite considerably after the shows which was when you wanted a drink but the staff were very helpful

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
It was very clean and there was always someone cleaning up

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
This was supposed to be an upgrade but it was very noisy with a lot of engine noise. We normally have a balcony cabin at the front of the ship but due to teenagers paying for there own cabin we went inside to make it cheaper for them. An internal cabin was fine but seemed a little less spacious and noisy. Jordan our steward kept it very clean and tidy for us

Ship tip

There is always somewhere cosy and quiet to sit on Britannia which means you do not need to spend a lot of time in your cabin to relax. I feel very at home on her. Cannot wait til next year.

Bilbao was great a beautiful place to wander around

St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands Did not visit port


3 out of 5
A shame that people were using the lifts to get to breakfast when you were trying to get off the ship with cases. Being at the back of the ship meant the lift did not even go down to the right floor which meant a second struggle to get in another lift
