The Queen officially names P&O Britannia

Britannia -naming -ceremony

Her Majesty the Queen has officially named P&O Britannia at a stunning ceremony in Southampton on 10th March. The vessel, at over 1,000 ft, is the largest cruise ship designed for the British holiday market and cost almost £0.5bn to build. The naming of the ship ended several days of celebration since it arrived in the UK.

Our Head of Cruise Marketing, Rhiannon Kilbride was there to soak up the action. Below are some of our favourite tweets from the day:
