Preparation for embarkation, especially information regarding covid requirements and testing. Staff were always helpful and excursions were informative. We often recommend P&O and would sail with them again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time onboard Britannia. Felt very safe with all the Covid protocols in place. One thing that is always consistent with P&O is the high level of service provided by crew through out the ship which is one of the main reasons we remain loyal to P&O.
