Holiday ruined by £160 hidden flight charges by Cruiser95588854

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 !

First time on a cruise ship by Cruiser55564230

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

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.

TRY IT FOR A PLEASANT CHANGE by Cruiser68453260

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.

Nice ship. by Cruiser95900726

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

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!

Good Caribbean Cruise by Subbuteo27

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

First Caribbean cruise and would go again. Not the best cruise line we have used, but good value for the price. Very impressed by the captain and how he kept us informed of changes.

Great cruise and destination by Deedream

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Great atmosphere on board for Christmas and New Year and loved the destinations. The Captain did a great job with his daily announcements and the build up to Christmas for the children on board. The food was very good and there was a wide selection of drinks. Our favourite place to go for drinks in the evening was the Crow’s Nest on deck 16. Most of the staff were very good, but some were indifferent and uncommunicative. This was a shame as it slightly marred the overall experience.

Amazing Holiday by Maidment8

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Had an amazing time, although found P & O trips far too expensive you can do same trips for at least half the money by using port taxis and mini buses

Not as good as expected. by Shakeyman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Overall we didn’t think that this cruise was worth it. We did another Caribbean cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines several years earlier and had a much more enjoyable experience.Our Canaries cruise on the Ventura was better than this one and cost a damned sight less. So be warned not to expect too much as you may well be disappointed!

Excellent holiday on Britannia the second time we’ve been on her would probably go her again. by brio1955

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

If you like hot weather the Caribbean is the place for you although it can rain from time to time but it’s warm rain lol. There are plenty of excursions to see if that’s your thing. And there are plenty of things that you can do yourself. Can’t wait to go again if i could.
