P&O Cruises’ Britannia sets sail after multimillion-pound refit

P&O Cruises flagship Britannia has sailed from Southampton after a multimillion-pound refit.

The line recently announced that its travel agent ship visits schedule will include three chances to visit Britannia. 

The changes to the ship, completed earlier this month, come ahead of its 10th anniversary celebration cruise on June 6, 2025. 

The refurbishment includes public spaces, suites and cabins; extension of the loyalty and cruise sales area; enhancements to the Market Cafe; and a “significant investment” in crew areas.

The children’s splash area has been upgraded with interactive water features.

Capacity in the Sunset Bar has been increased with additional seating as design aspects from new ships Iona and Arvia are introduced.   

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.”
