Britannia joined the P&O Cruises' fleet in 2015. Designed for the modern British holidaymaker, she combines the latest innovations with a contemporary style. The spectacular 'starburst' centrepiece at the heart of the atrium greets you as you step aboard and perfectly complements the 6000 artworks, chic public areas, and state-of-the-art staterooms. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to amenities - there are more than ten eateries, eight social areas and bars, seven entertainment venues, and countless places to relax, unwind, and have fun. Escape to the Retreat adult-only spa terrace for an hour or so while the kids have fun with the clubs and activities at The Reef. Innovations such as The Cookery Club and The Studio add to your on-board experience too. Days in port open up a world of sightseeing, thrilling adventures, and cultural activities, either independently or on an organised excursion.
There are three main dining rooms on Britannia — Peninsular, Oriental and Meridian — and all serve a five-course dinner menu. Oriental offers traditional Club Dining with early or late sittings, while Meridian and Peninsular provide more flexible Freedom Dining. Horizon opens round-the-clock for light bites and international buffet-style dishes. There is also Lido Grill and a 'grab and go' counter by the pool. Market Cafe is a classic French-style patisserie from Eric Lanlard serving gourmet meze boards, crepes, and gelatos. Speciality restaurants include The Epicurean — offering modern afternoon tea and a fine dining menu — and Sindhu Restaurant, which serves a fusion of Indian and British cuisines with exotic cocktails. The Glass House pairs every mouth-watering dish with a glass of wine. The Limelight Club is an adult-only eatery that hosts a gourmet dinner before transforming into a late-night entertainment and dancing venue. Celebrity chef-hosted dinners are also available on Britannia.
There is a bar or lounge to match your every mood. Unwind with a leisurely cappuccino in Java coffee bar after a day ashore. Brodie's Bar combines a relaxed traditional pub setting with quizzes, live football screenings, and the chance to experience The Great British Beer Menu. Relax with a glass of wine in The Glass House, with recommendations by celebrity wine expert, Olly Smith. The expert bar staff in The Blue Bar create signature cocktails in their own inimitable style before your eyes. Socialise with new-found friends over an artisan gin and tonic as you enjoy amazing views in The Crow's Nest.
Indulge yourself with a pampering afternoon in Oasis Spa or hone your cooking and chocolate-making skills at The Cookery Club. The Studio hosts guest speakers, films, game shows, and musical recitals, or you can take a twirl with your partner around the dance floor in The Crystal Room. Headliners Theatre presents Broadway-style shows, musical extravaganzas, acrobatic shows, and themed performances against a unique LED backdrop. Take your seat in The Live Lounge to enjoy comedy, live bands, and tribute acts, or try your luck at the slot machines in the casino. Bring your day to a close in style with late-night dancing in The Limelight Club.
