Holiday ruined by £160 hidden flight charges by Cruiser95588854

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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!

Really impressed with Britannia, its... by katy012

Sail Date: /
Really impressed with Britannia, its is a very large ship so don’t go on if you like the smaller more intimate experience. But there was lots to do aimed at all age groups, lots of bars, eating options etc. Good always top notch and the ship is very clean and well maintained. Only small downsides are cost of wifi is extortionate, decks become like an ice rink at the hint of moisture we saw many people fall over, so be careful! Fab holiday and would love to go on her again!

Fabulous Caribbean Cruisewas slightly by keeshond

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
This is my first cruise with P and O and I would not hesitate to do another. So much to do on board and the ports of call were wonderful. It took a while for me to find my way around Britannia but it is a lovely ship and there was always somewhere to go if the hustle and bustle of a busy ship became too much. There were so many excursions to choose from that you could do the same cruise again and find lots of other places to visit.

Britannia is a beautiful ship,... by TemplarKH

Sail Date: /
Britannia is a beautiful ship, but be prepared to do a lot of walking, without a doubt it’s very clean ship and I can’t fault them on that one, all the food served is excellent and very tasty, even the self service restaurant, sadly on a recent cruise to the Caribbean their was some bad customer service problems in two sections of the ship, one being in the photograph section and also the java section which sells Costa coffee, but must say I did enjoy the cruise and of course the weather was outstanding all the time.

Sailing out of Southampton in October to the Caribbean, flying home from Barbados and P&O want to charge £50 each to book a seat on the flight home. I think this is outrageous Shame on you P&O daylight robbery.
