In October 2019, Britannia underwent a million-pound refit. The refurbishment truly bought Britannia’s personality to the fore by maximising on her most popular public areas, such as the atrium, Java Café and Blue Bar. With her enhanced elegance and fresh sense of purpose, you’ll see the world just the way you like it, in even greater luxury and style.

Britannia offers six categories of cabins from insides to suites. Inside cabins are more spacious than you’d expect and are the perfect option if you prefer to spend time exploring at shore or relaxing in a lounge. A first for P&O Cruises, every outside cabin on Britannia has a balcony. There’s nothing quite like opening your patio style doors onto your own private balcony while at sea. P&O suites are the ultimate in luxury with butler-service, superior bathrooms, a dressing area and a personal balcony.
Britannia is one of the very first cruise ships to include purpose-built cabins with balconies for solo travellers. There are 15 Single Balcony cabins and 12 Inside cabins in a dedicated corridor at the top of the ship.
Food on Britannia is truly spectacular, and you’ll truly be spoilt for choice as there are 8 free dining options and 9 fee dining options available. Meridian, Peninsular, Oriental, Horizon, Lido Grill, The Pizzeria, Grab & Go and Room Service all fall under free dining.
Meridian is one of the two main dining rooms offering open seating from 6.00pm to 9.30pm. The menu changes daily here (meaning you’ll never get bored!) and on formal nights the Gala Menu, which has been designed by Marco Pierre White, is available. Horizon is the main buffet restaurant where the cuisine chooses daily, themes include Indian, Mediterranean and Best of British. And with indoor and outdoor seating available, you have the option to dine alfresco.
The Limelight Club, Market Café, Sindhu, The Glass House, The Epicurean, Afternoon Tea at The Epicurean, The Beach House, Cookery Club and Java are all fee dining options. With a menu designed by master pâtissier, Eric Lanlard, Market Café has the most delicious French-style pastries, fine cheese, antipasto, charcuterie, tapas and speciality breads. P&O Cruises first foray into a supper club, The Limelight Club is an incredible option, providing guests with the opportunity to hear live musicians in an intimate setting.
Boredom is not an emotion you’ll feel aboard Britannia; there’s a plethora of games, activities and entertainment available all day, every day. Food has a huge role on board with regular cooking demonstrations taking place in The Studio on Deck 7. The Cookery Club hosts three-hour long sessions in which you’ll learn from the best: Terrence Alexander, Marco Pierre White and Eric Lanlard.
During the day, Brodie’s pub is the home of quizzes, trivia and bingo and The Crystal Room hosts talks from guest lecturers. Card games take place in the Marlow Suite, Britannia’s card room. Next door in the Ivory Suite, enrichment activities (such as language classes) take place.
There’s dancing and live music available all day. The Live Lounge and the Crystal Room are the top spots for dancing with the entertainment team hosting line dancing and ballroom classes.
As the sun sets, the evening entertainment kicks in. Show off your new moves and dance the night away in The Crystal Room as it becomes a lounge dedicated to the love of Latin and ballroom dancing. The Live Lounge becomes the ships late night disco and a small casino adjoins Brodie’s pub where you can take part in tournaments.
