One of my readers, Damian Gaughan, has recently returned from a 14-night cruise on Britannia, and he’s sent me his review of it. I’m publishing it here – with his permission, of course – because it’s written from a perspective that’s completely different from the one I would have. This is because Damian and his […]

Having covered the atrium area and the restaurants, now it’s the turn of cabins. We visited a number of these, of various types. Unfortunately we may have missed one or two types but the ones we saw are representative, I think. They were a single cabin; a balcony cabin; an accessible cabin; and a couple […]

Last Friday I toured Britannia as part of a press/media visit, and spent about three hours aboard her. There were quite a lot of people aboard – most were on passenger visits – and we were able to explore the ship pretty thoroughly. This post, and a couple of others, will give my impression on […]
