wonderful employees, ship could use a bit of work
The whole experience from start to finish was simply fantastic.
Booked premium no lounge access at Manchester no priority boarding at Barbados, meals on board average had to book at a supplement restaurants on board to get that special feel
Everything was excellent, our table waiters, Raja and Henry were superb and it was great to meet our favourite wine waiter Rahul once again
Great service in exceptional circumstances
Our cruise on the Britannia was cancelled the night we arrived on board (13th March 2020) due to covid-19 which was disappointing but the right decision for everyones safety and we have nothing but gratitude and admiration for all the crew and staff on board the ship dealing with this unexpected cancellation and ensuring our comfort and enjoyment during our 9 day Trans-Atlantic crossing to get home to Southampton. They got us back to England safe and sound and still made sure we had a good time doing it. Not the holiday we were expecting but enjoyable none the less. The crew were true professional and because of this service we have rebooked the same cruise for next year and are very much looking forward to trying again in 2021! Thank you to the P&O Britannia crew.
The staff all were very friendly and helpful, always cheerful and welcoming. The cabin attendant was first class and always left everything in pristine condition while the waiting staff at the evening meal soon got to know us and there was a great deal of friendly interaction with them and nothing was too much trouble. In the Horizon dining area the staff were also very helpful and friendly and again, nothing was too much trouble. My only criticism in the Horizon was that we witnesses an officer reprimanding a member of staff in front of passengers which made us feel uncomfortable and should have been done in private; it was rather unprofessional. Safety was of paramount importance and this was particularly evident when we experienced some rough seas when we were not allowed out on deck and were constantly kept informed of the situation. The evening entertainment was of a very high standard and varied while the day time activities also provided some good choices. The excursions were all very well organised and the local guides were brilliant and incredibly knowledgeable. In addition, the fact that tips were not an added extra proved very positive as it enabled individual choice here. On a negative note however, the cost of WIFI was very expensive, particularly when considering the fact that a lot of cruise lines offer this service for free. this may be something that P and O need to consider in the future. Finally, I would like to end this review by saying that overall the cruise was utterly amazing, the detail paid to excellent organisation and the first class service of all staff members made it very special indeed. Thank you to all.
