The Britannia is an excellent ship & the staff so friendly & helpful. i had a disc slip while on the cruise & I was given 1st class treatment,. When my bow tie fell apart I could not sort out how to fix it and put it on a helpful person in the gents clothing shop fixed it for me and actually put it
on for me. The restaurants were excellent & we had freedom dining which really suited us. The cabin balcony was just suoerb. We went on many P&O excursions & they were all very good. we have seen Britannia in Southampton since & felt home sick. The entertainment was so varied & there was always so much to see & do. Live music or live theatre. If you want you could eat for 22 hours in every day, there is always some where to eat that is open. Everwhere is so clean. If you want to go to the Gym it is also excellent. On such a large boat the passengers are so spread out so there is loads of space on the decks and restaurants. Only at the 'farewell' does everybody congregate together around the main pool & only then do you reallise how many people are actually on the boat.
From booking (nearly 18months in advance) to debarking at the end of an amazing holiday, I simply have no complaints.
Booking was a breeze and the staff at CruiseSaleFinder were great.
Value for money - it doesn’t get much better than a cruise. This cruise gave us not only a high quality holiday for less, but a great way of taking our hotel to several destinations!
Boarding was easy, FTTF making it even easier (as you’re largely treated like a VIP) and once onboard we proceeded to make ourselves right at home.
The ship itself was well maintained and great to explore with several themed areas onboard.
Shows were top notch and the crew were great.
Cruise Director Eli was awesome and really helped to make this a memorable holiday.
Our destinations were excellent, but Noumea on a Sunday can be a little underwhelming after the delights of Maré, Mystery Island and Lifou.
We had a quad obstructed view cabin (4127) and I’d happily book this again.
Highly recommended and will be remembered for a long long time.
I had a great time on the cruise , staff were very friendly and helpful starting from our room 10150 steward Danielle who was always there to help with a big smile no problem to big or small. he was always there could not speak more highly of him a perfect gentleman. to our waiters in the waterfront
Jerome, Alex and Fatima on table 220 who were fantastic at there job always with a big smile when we entered the restaurant, very very good at there job once again could not speak more highly of them. I really cannot speak badly of any of the staff on board.
My only disappointment was the treatment of a member of our group who was treated or lack of it after the ceiling outside her cabin 10159 collapsed hitting her on the head leaving her with a nasty bump on the back of her head and instead of treating her were more worried about filling in paperwork and who was paying for any medical treatment she would receive, spent less than half hour before being sent back to her room. not once over the next couple of days asking weather she was alright.Just found out today 22-02-2019 after an m.r.i scan that she was heavily concussed. So i think that you seriously should look at improving this department of your your ship before something like this could happen again. Thanking you Natale.
The staff/crew were rude and arrogant. They failed to resolve any issues we raised. There answer to everything was to give you a bottle of Prosecco/Asti. My partner had his arm in a sling and on more than one occasion when I held a door open for him staff pushed him aside and barged through. No
one knew the word please or thank you
the food was ordinary and often they ran out of dishes in the buffet. You had to ask for butter both in the buffet and restaurant. There was not much variety in the food, Pizzas were awful considering it was an Italian ship. The bread was good
When ordering a beer in the buffet we were charged a variety of prices. Often there were not mugs and a number were chipped.Tables were given a cursory wipe with the same cloth used over and over again. Waiters were loath to remove dirty plates etc. and stood around chatting.
the shows were very ordinary with very little variation. If you like girls in skimpy clothes flinging their hair about then you are OK. None of the shows catered for the variety of people aboard. You had to book for some shows and this nearly caused an accident with people queuing and then surging forward. Some people sat on the steps in the theatre contrary to H&S.
the toilets frequently blocked and a number of cabins experienced some problems with this. this also occurred in the public areas.
We were charged 16 euros for a shuttle bus into Marseille only to discover there was a free shuttle 200 yds down the road
In 11 days on board they could not work out why some cabins could get English films and some could not. Instead of stating there was a problem they gave all orts of excuses.
If like us you have an evening flight there are a number of lockers you can use in Barcelona. I can recommend Bike Rental Barcelona, there is some one there all the time, don't be put off by all the bikes in what appears to be a cave in a back street (just off Ramblas) owner is lovely and speaks perfect English
Just love this ship, staff are excellent, food was divine especially Dragon Lady and entertainment was great. Moreton Island was just beautiful and snorkelling the wrecks was a real hi light. So many fish species and clear water.
Only 4 nights which wasn't enough. We loved this cruise, loved the ship and had an amazing time on the whale watching shore trip. Love the fit out of "Dora" and will definitely be back on board this beautiful ship
Absolutely loved cruising onboard the Majestic Princess, tried everything from the pool, food, entertainment, games, cocktails and spa. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway.
Well I was sure that booking in May for a november/december cruise would assure me a good cabin...never had a problem before.
So our first holiday as a couple is booked paid the premium for a balcony Queen bed room, but on cabin allocation we were assigned a quad share room that is one of only a hand full that cannot be reconfigured. 6 foot 4 inch partner in a bunk bed very romantic. only after 4 days of this horrendous sleeping arrangement and many tears did anyone onboard do anything. eventually got moved down 4 decks to an obstructed cabin thankfully with a queen bed. To say it ruined what was to be a romantic birthday cruise is an understatement but at least we know as a couple we can cope with issues and still smile. I could have saved myself many dollars and booked an obstructed view if that is what I wanted. Lesson dont think you will get what you have asked and paid for, the devil is in the fine print that allows this sort of shonky practice to go on.
