Holiday ruined by £160 hidden flight charges by Cruiser95588854

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Had a lovely time on Britannia - great itinerary service food BUT when i went to book seats on the flight for the 4 people in my party so we could sit on an 8 hour flight together was greeted with a £20 per person each way charge ! When i complained to Cruise 118 all they wanted to do was blame P&O as it was their fee - Cruise 118 did not tell me about it when i booked . The flight was a charter so they spent endless time trying to flog stuff to you as well  [ Thompson's ] Lesson learned - ask stuff you do not think to when you book !

TRY IT FOR A PLEASANT CHANGE by Cruiser68453260

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Best part of the cruise was the quality of the food and the courteous staff    We had the cabin on top of the bridge which allowed us forward views and a large patio..

 

Not too keen on sharing tables at dinner, had to arrive early to get a single table waiting staff and food was impressive.

First time on a cruise ship by Cruiser55564230

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were a little apprehensive as it was are 1st cruise..........But we were both blown away by the whole 15 days..........Service,Food,Entertainment was 1st class.

Apart from Feeding and drinking and putting ourselves to bed P&O did everything for us.

We loved being Beach bums during the day and Then dressing up for The Evenings.

We did freedom Dining which was a good choice as you could plan your Evening around 2 Shows.

We will be definitely booking another cruise.

My Favorite act was the Eric and Ern show. 

Big Thanks To P&O For a great Cruise.

 

Martin.

Hell on the high sees by Cruiser85526392

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We would NOT recommend this ship to anyone who is used to some style and comfort. We had a mini suite mid ship on deck 15 for three weeks, the noise from above was shear hell! It was like being in a tin can and they were unable to move us as the ship was full.

Nice ship. by Cruiser95900726

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall a good holiday , lovely ship , clean ,good food ,good dining & cabin service.

Not so impressed with the evening entertainment , only 3 production shows ,which for 15 nights wasn't enough. A lot of individual performers were fair but not as good as I've experienced on other ships.

Evening activities seemed to clash with late dining , so we missed quiet a lot of the quizzes.

Gengeral pool staff uninterested .lots of glasses , towels ,plates left lying about into the evening around the pool area, very untidy .

Bought a soft drinks package ,only a choice of 4 drinks ,tonic, lemonade ,coke & Diet Coke.Unable  to get Tonic at certain bars , if you purchase a drinks package you should be able to get all drinks at all the bars.

Soot on the chairs & deck areas at the back of the ship, resulting in dirty clothes that had to have special cleaning as a general wash wouldn't remove the marks.

Reception advised us to give to the cabin steward ,who would have the items cleaned with no charge.

Never say never , Britannia is a lovely ship ,but I do think something's need attention.

Just a bit too British for me by trelawnytwo

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Although initally disapointed with Britannia, I grew to love it, never felf crowded, always somewhere to sit and relax. Food OK but not spectacular, got fed up with the P&O Classics on the menu every night! Entertainment OK, loved the Limelight Club, Jaki Graham and Madeline Bell amazing, best two nights of the cruise.

Cabin small but comfortable with everything you need, cabin steward very helpful and efficient. Ports good, excursions good value for money and well organised.

Hated the sailaway parties!

Great first cruise by DCAR

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall for our first cruise we really enjoyed it and are planning on booking another one. Maybe wouldn’t leave from Southampton again as effectively lost 4 days of the holiday as weather bad going over the Bay of Biscay and was quite rough. Other than that loved it.

Fabulous Mediterranean Cruise. by jollyjacktar62

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

First time cruise for us so not sure what to expect. At no time in the entire cruise were we disappointed about anything. Me personally, it was like fourteen Christmas days in a row, I loved every second of it. Two niggles, there was one lift not working and we had a meal that wasn't very hot in the Meridian. That is being very picky I know, but we sat in the bar at the end of the cruise for an hour trying to think of any downsides, and that's all we could think of.

It was wonderful by firsttimerpete

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our 1st trip to Norway and on Britiania. We would repeat the trip at the drop of a hat. The ship, crew, food and entertainment was top notch. Norway, and it's people are simply stunning.
