We were concerned over mixed reviews but we were very pleasantly surprised. Check in very friendly and efficient. Cabin more spacious than others, balcony is slightly smaller but adequate. Bathrooms much better with proper shower doors and luxury toiletries from The White Company. Staff we experienced were exceptional. Entertainment was of excellent quality. The Cookery Club/Chefs Table was fantastic with Nico and his team Food was very good, teenage daughter did prefer RCC but I didn't. Crows Nest and Library were my favourite areas. Only downside was a small % of passengers who moaned about everything and were just downright rude at times. We had one who blocked out a double table so she wouldn't have to sit next to anyone, another tried to stop others accessing seats next to her in the theatre and a guy in the restaurant who complained loudly and clicked his fingers at the staff every time he wanted something, even if they were waiting on other guests. In summary, loved P&O, loved Britannia, loved the ports. Staff were great, shame on that small % of passengers who believed they were superior, acted in such embarrassing ways and refused to find joy in anything.
