P&O cruises have many great ships in their fleet, but there’s one that is sure to impress. The P&O Britannia will be the largest ship in the entire fleet.
Constructed exclusively for the British marketplace, P&O are using British design company, Richmond for overseeing the whole project behind the ship's interiors.
The Britannia’s capacity is huge and will accommodate approximately 3,611 passengers. The ship is equally impressive in terms of design as it will have an enormous 94 metre Union Jack Flag on the bow of the ship.
The ship also has two blue pillars which hold the sun motif that P&O cruises have on all of their ships. A beloved icon of the British Isles will also be featured by the end of this year, on all eight ships in the P&O fleet styled in a contemporary way which looks to the future, whilst celebrating the past.
The ship is destined to be the one that will truly keep its promise by offering something for everyone.
