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.

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.
