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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Great holiday on the Britannia... by danielsara

Sail Date: /

Great holiday on the Britannia in April. This was our 6th family cruise and ranked very highly. The kids club (8 & 10 yr old) was the best buy far both on quality of staff and equipment, getting them out was the challenge the midnight pick up for no charge was the icing on the cake. Missing Guernsey due to winds the only disappointment.

The Britannia was ok, i... by DaveMid2000

Sail Date: /

The Britannia was ok, i would do another cruise on her but not in europe! The weather along with the size of the ship caused us to miss Saint Peter's port and sail directly to Southampton. Made sense but had a knock on affect of the shops and casino being closed which just added to our frustration of not being able to visit Guernsey. To cap it all the winds caused over an hours delay for disembarking and finally due to safety we are still waiting for our wheel chair access friends to board our bus. Pity really for everyone as P&O can't control the weather ! Would like to say i will sail again but so sure now.

Good week on this huge... by alan24

Sail Date: /

Good week on this huge ship. Very friendly crew and food was excellent. Ate at Sindhu and the Beach House. Couldn’t fault them at all. Usual moaning lot on board who couldn’t enjoy themselves if they tried! Petty whining and nonsense. Weather wasn’t the best but we can’t order that! Cabin was spotless and the gym was too. Storm Hannah prevented us from stopping off at guernsey so we arrived in port at Southampton on Friday evening to avoid the wind etc. Looking forward to my next adventure:)

Only ever travelled with p and o and have noticed very slight down turn regarding small items ie, don’t fold towels in animal shapes anymore also no sweets in cabins and slight lack of waiters on deck and buffet would appear they are cutting back on probably silly little things but to some these are things they go with p and o for

Best Cruise Ever. 5 stars. by eurolord

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

This was a Strictly Come Dancing themed cruise and it was excellent. We met many of the stars onboard and watched a lot of great shows. The food and service was excellent in all the restaurants. We had a forward facing balcony cabin on deck 15 (A103) and much to our surprise it was an excellent cabin but we were lucky with the weather. Cabin steward was also very helpful. Can't think of any negatives except the lifts which seemed to have a life all if their own and more photographers are required on these cruises as they were overwhelmed by the amount of work from passengers.
