Cunard has always set the standards high and the rest simply follows. Congratulations on making that choice as the trans-Atlantic is one of the best way to relax & unwind, away from the rest of the world for 6 days. I believe there is 3 formal night, 2 informal & smart casual.She is a fantastic ship, has 4 major elevators (A=forward - D=aft/back) deck 2,3 & 7 is where you shall find play,food, drink and Canyon Ranch Spa, endulge & bon voyag.

I agree with the last answer, Cunard has higher standards than P&O - or more accurately they have kept the standards that P&0 used to have before it was aimed at the mass market by its US owners. Cunard tranatlantic is a different experience - with no ports of call - and thus its US owners have focused on providing an on board elegance, wonderful things to keep one entertained and more attracts people who do not find it an imposition to dress for dinner. However it is not at all starched shirt or stuffy but would be seen as such only by those who want to come directly to dinner from the poolside, complete with a pint of lager in their hand. You are in for a wonderful time,with outstanding service, food and entertainment. For those that do however like the P&O formula they do have one bar that is a pub, with pub entertainments but this is easy to avoid if you want to.

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
