Cruise Ships


The biggest ever ship dedicated to the British market

Britannia, which became the flagship of the P&O Cruises fleet when she was christened by the Queen in March 2015, is by far the biggest ship built for the British cruise market.

She offers a sophisticated, contemporary holiday experience across health and beauty, shopping and entertainment with a strong focus on dining.

In a first for P&O Cruises, all 1,313 outside cabins have balconies. The 62 suites are butler-serviced and guests receive a number of treats including exclusive access to breakfast in Epicurean and priority tender passes.

Special features of the ship include

  • The Cookery Club, a 24 person state-of-the-art cookery school developed in association with James Martin
  • A three-tier feature atrium with Eric Lanlard patisserie, a charcuterie and gelateria as well as spectacular Star Burst sculpture
  • Sindhu restaurant by Atul Kochhar and Olly Smith’s The Glass House; gala menus created by Marco Pierre White
  • The Limelight Club, a combined entertainment and dining venue in the great tradition of the supper club
