Where can you sail to on Britannia?

During the summer, Britannia is found in the Med

It’s impossible to sum up a fraction of what the Med has to offer but some of the highlights include the giddy architecture of Barcelona, the glamour of Cannes, the awesome art treasures of Florence and the ice cream and icons of the Eternal City, Rome.

During the winter, Britannia wisely heads for the beaches of the Caribbean

Cruising is the perfect way to see the Caribbean as you can island-hop to explore its amazing cultural and geographical diversity, from the salt flats and flamingos of Curaçao to the waterfalls and volcanoes of St Lucia.
