We’ve known for a month or so that P&O would start selling Britannia cruises from March 27th, although they have been allowing people to pre-register their interest. We can now tell you that the P&O Britannia cruises are finally on sale from today, although we did see that Thomas Cook had started to sell them one day early.
Even though the ship will be the biggest in the P&O fleet, up to 3,600 passengers and 1,400 crewmembers, you shouldn’t be complacent because bookings are expected to go through the roof. It is for this very reason why you are advised to book well in advance.
From what we can see on the P&O website, there are 44 Britannia cruises in all, these include itineraries for 2015 and early 2016. Prices start from as little as £249 for a two-night cruise to Guernsey. Some of the other cruises take in destinations in the Canaries, Mediterranean, Norwegian Fjords, and even one to the Caribbean.
There is so much to look forward to on P&O Britannia, and while they might not be as fun as on the upcoming Anthem of the Seas from Royal Caribbean, not everyone loves a party atmosphere on a ship.
If you were thinking of booking a cruise on the Britannia, but just cannot make that final decision, then just think about the fact that you will be part of history to go on her maiden season, especially when she has such an iconic name.
