The P&O Cruises ship Britannia has set sail from Southampton following a multi-million-pound makeover, with the first guests experiencing the revamp this weekend.

The changes, which were completed earlier this month, come ahead of Britannia’s 10th anniversary celebration cruise in 2025.

The makeover includes a refresh of public areas and cabins, enhancements of the space and dining choices in the Market Café; and an investment in the crew areas.

The Sunset Bar has a new warm colour scheme and additional seating and the children’s splash area has a colourful upgrade with interactive water features. Market Café will now offer Snowflake’s first gelato-filled doughnuts at sea.

P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “Britannia is our flagship, and with her 10th anniversary celebration cruise next summer we know the importance of ensuring the ship looks its absolute best to deliver an elevated experience for our new and loyal guests.”

Britannia sets sail on the 10th anniversary celebration cruise on June 6, 2025, from Southampton, exploring the British Isles. Ports of call will include Edinburgh (Newhaven), Kirkwall, Stornoway, Belfast, an overnight in Liverpool, and Cork (Cobh), with prices starting from £1,099 per person, based on two people sharing an inside cabin. More details of the celebration cruise, including special guest entertainers and other surprises, will be revealed later closer to the sailing.

P&O Cruises recently announced its travel agent ship visits programme will include three opportunities to visit Britannia.

Agents will see everything the flagship has to offer, including a tour of the cabins, entertainment venues, dining, plus a three-course meal in one of the restaurants on board. Find out more at Shine Rewards Club.
