As I was scrolling through my Twitter feed this evening, I spotted a lot of tweets from my friends and colleagues who are at the Travel Weekly Globe Awards about an exciting announcement coming up from Britain’s favourite cruise line P&O Cruises.
Soon enough, I saw the tweet that everyone had been waiting for, which linked to a video on the cruise lines’ YouTube channel:
As you can see from the video; P&O Cruises have given us all a glimpse inside Britannia; the largest cruise ship to be designed for the British market, that will be setting sail in Spring 2015. We also saw that she will embrace a very bold 94-metre long Union Flag across her bow; which will actually be the largest version of the flag in existence. Not only that; but the twin-funnels aboard will be painted blue and will feature the iconic P&O Cruises’ logo, which is a step away from the current “buff” coloured funnels found on other ships within the fleet.
In fact, as part of a new move by the cruise line, the new livery will be rolled out across the entire fleet, starting with Aurora; who will sport the new look after emerging from a scheduled dry-dock in September. The remaining ships will also receive their new looks by the end of 2016.
What do you think of the new look? I think it is great that P&O Cruises are showcasing their “Britishness”, especially with the launch of the aptly-named Britannia next year.
