Launched in spring 2015, the new Britannia is a luxury five-star hotel on the sea. The biggest and most luxurious ship for British holidaymakers, it will thrill those who set sail on her: Mum, Dad, grandparents, children and everyone else. The kids' clubs are tailored to different ages, and there's a nursery service in the evenings and a teen area too. Grown-up guests can lounge by the pool, join the cookery club, work out in the state-of-the-art gym, watch a film in the cinema, enjoy live music and entertainment, or have a dance… or a bit of everything!

Cabin facilities vary but are all modern and spacious and comfortably sleep families with children. You can explore a host of destinations on-board Britannia, including the Canaries, France, the Caribbean, Norway, the British Isles and more. Included in your cruise holiday price is en-suite accommodation, flights (where applicable), dining (not drinks) and entertainment.
