Britannia is the latest addition of P&O Cruises' fleet and was even voted 'Best New Ocean Ship' at the Cruise International Awards 2015. Designed for British cruisers, you'll feel like you're staying in a 5* hotel while discovering the beautiful corners of the world.
This luxury ship boasts fantastic facilities catering for families and adults alike. Some of the children’s facilities include an older kids’ and teens’ sun deck, while a programme for under 18s, split into four age groups, will keep youngsters occupied with activities organised by Reef Rangers in their allocated zones.
This means you get some time out to enjoy many of the other things onboard such as a relaxing massage in the Oasis Spa – and you could always indulge in a spa package. Try your hand at cookery lessons at The Cookery Club set in a high-tech kitchen. One of the best things about this club is that the chefs have been trained by one of Britain’s favourite TV chefs, James Martin, so it’s your opportunity to learn some top skills and create some great British recipes. A family cookery class is also offered.
Speaking of food, there are 10 incredible dining options on the ship including the main restaurants Peninsular, Meridian and Oriental – but for a small extra charge you’ve got the opportunity to enjoy the signature select dining options.
Whether you’ve embarked on a Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Baltic cruise or other, you can still feel like you’re at home in Britain with the help Master Patissier Eric Lanlard and his divine afternoon tea at The Epicurean. There’s also Indian-inspired Sindhu, and The Glass House run by the famous TV sommelier Olly Smith who appeared on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen. Olly is also one of the hosts at the celebrity chef-hosted dinners alongside Marco Pierre White and James Martin.
Five slick entertainment venues also help to make this voyage an all-round experience. These include the Headliners Theatre, incorporating the latest technology such as an LED screen offering a change of setting in the blink of an eye. Here you can watch West End style shows, or something a bit more avant-garde including The Sound of the Underground– a fantastical ride on the tube all around UK culture, music and history with a great Britannia sound track.
