A Closer Look at Britannia

Britannia Cruises


There was so much anticipation around the arrival of Britannia prior to her debut in 2015. She is the largest vessel ever built for the UK market and features prominent and patriotic livery which includes the largest Union Jack of its kind painted on her bow.

Aimed at foodies and families, Britannia is a ship for everyone. Whilst some of the P&O fleet, Arcadia and Oriana, are singled out as being adult-only ships, she offers entertainment that young cruisers enjoy just as much as older ones. She overtook Ventura as the largest ship in the fleet as is designed to represent the best of British, from the red, white and blue on her hull to the 70 different varieties of beer that are served in her bars.

Whilst the dining venues range from the oriental flavours offered in Sindhu to the perfect patisserie options in Eric Lanlard’s Market Café, the faces behind the food also make an appearance. P&O have gathered their own brigade of food heroes featuring the aforementioned Lanlard, along with wine expert Ollie Smith and the fiery Marco Pierre White.

It’s not all about eating the food during your Britannia cruise, though, as there will also be the chance to get involved in the making of it too. Culinary classes are hosted in the Cookery Club, whilst specific sailings also feature tutorials from a further long list of names that includes Antonio Carluccio. Special classes will also be held for children so that they can get their hands dirty too.

Every inch of Britannia has been meticulously designed by Richmond International in order to create a ship that is inspired by the past but built for the future. This notion stretches from the beautifully crafted cabins all the way to the breath-taking Starburst Atrium that welcomes you onboard. P&O’s signature kids club, known as The Reef, is also present, with various areas of the ship dedicated to children of different ages. So they can be off enjoying themselves whilst you relax by the pool or pamper yourself in the Oasis Spa.

Britannia will spend her summers visiting the Mediterranean, Norwegian Fjords and Canary Islands, before heading off to the Caribbean for some winter sun.
