Destinations: Britannia itineraries

Sailing from its homeport of Southampton, the Britannia has a rich and varied schedule that takes it to ports across Europe, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and beyond. Itineraries are well-designed to include a range of shore excursions, with tours to suit all interests and activity levels. Popular examples include birdwatching in Gibraltar, swimming and shopping in Ibiza and wandering the old streets of Bairro Alto in Lisbon.

Things to remember: On board Britannia

Here are some helpful facts to keep in mind when planning a holiday on board the Britannia cruise ship:
  • The dress code is smart casual by day, evening casual by night, although there are usually at least two formal nights per cruise.
  • Daily gratuities are automatically added to your account and the onboard currency is the Great British Pound.
  • Families are welcome, with excellent children's facilities and organised youth programmes.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
