Watch P&O Cruises’ Britannia begin sea trials

Britannia

Britannia, P&O Cruises’ flagship vessel, has spent its first moments at sea  and you can watch them in the video below.

The sea trial comes ahead of the 142,000 ton ship’s christening in Southampton on March 10, 2015.

The ship the largest ever built for the UK market will depart from the port on March 14, 2015 for its maiden voyage, taking in Spain, Italy and France.

Details of what to expect onboard the 3,600-passenger ship will be announced later this month, but the cruise line has already confirmed plans to host award-winning chefs such as Marco Pierre White and James Martin.

Speaking to Cruise Adviser in the 2015 ex-UK guide (which is out now), Chris Edgington, marketing director for P&O Cruises, said: “We want to show Britannia as the newest version of P&O’s expertise and we believe Southampton is where she needs to call home.

“There is capacity in the marketplace and we know we can create an extraordinary holiday experience.”
