Christened in March 2015 by Queen Elizabeth II in a glittering ceremony in Southampton, the Britannia is currently the largest in P&O Cruises’ fleet of 8. This maritime wonder is the new flagship of the ever-expanding P&O Cruises fleet, taking honour from the Oriana. Distinct features include the 94-metre Union Flag on the bow.
With 3 main signature restaurants and plenty of eateries to satisfy your taste buds, you will be spoilt for choice on the Britannia! Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and five-course dinner specials are served daily. All palates and tastes are catered for with a wide selection of pizzerias, daytime grills and, of course, 24-hour buffets!
Britannia offers the ultimate taste experience with a star-studded line up of celebrity chefs who will be on-board for sailings throughout the year. Foodies can try their hand at a cookery masterclass in the Cookery Club, followed by a chat with the chefs as you enjoy the finished product.
