          I understand

          It's also been announced that Britannia was 5% cheaper at £437m thanks to a currently strong Pound Sterling against the Euro.

          P&O have also announced that Britannia is fully booked for 70% of her first Season.

          A link to a set of photos of the actual handover, the previous set in #3being of the ship.

              Don't think so, the Godmother is a Travel Agent, she won the title in a competition run by P&O.

                Is it me or does the ship look rather bland?

                  I have seen this written elsewhere and have to agree, the photo's in my opinion don't give it a wow factor,

                    I'm glad someone else has said that they think it looks rather bland as that is what I think too. It needs a splash of colour somewhere, artwork or floral displays?. I agree Delboy, lovely as it looks, there doesn't seem to be any wow factor - maybe it'll be better in the flesh so to speak.

                      I think it looks very good. Not over the top - just right.

                          I must like bland, did notice it looks very wet, and no sign of a roof for the pool area.

                            If you want glitz there is always MSC or NCL, I think the décor looks good just right. CG

                              The most recent three NCL ships are quite tasteful compared to earlier ones.

                              Early Carnival and now Costa are the loudest! (Same interior designer, Joe Farcus)

                              You cannot really judge a ships décor by photos - sometime the décor appears louder than it does in the flesh, other times more bland.
