Britannia, the newest innovation in the cruise holiday sector, is set to be unveiled in Southampton during spring 2015. This is not just another cruise ship – Britannia is the largest ship made for the British market to ever set sail. The giant vessel’s engine will generate 62,400k of power, equivalent to seventy challenger tanks. It is taller than the Eiffel tower and has the capacity for 3,600 passengers. Britannia’s lucky customers will enjoy the best of British, with 13 top restaurants and cafes as well as 13 bars. The ship was built with passengers’ preferences and tastes in mind and will showcase the best culinary talent, matched with superb service.
The head of the ship is Captain Brown, currently monitoring the Britannia’s progress while it is being built at the Fincantieri yards in Monflacone, Italy. Captain Brown has been with P&O Cruises since 1996 and he will be joined by Captain David Pembridge to lead the shipboard team. The team are highly experienced and qualified, a perfect fit for the great Britannia. They are Deputy Captain Martin Allen and Hamish Sunter, Executive Pursers Darljit Sharma and Keith de la Mare, and Chief Engineers Sinclair Ross and Rob Long.
