After four years in the making, the largest cruise ship built exclusively for British passengers was launched in a dazzling naming ceremony performed by Her Majesty The Queen on 10 March 2015.


We’re pretty proud of Britannia and what she’s achieved in her first year. To celebrate her birthday, we look back at her maiden year in numbers. From the amount of cups of tea served on board and pairs of slippers handed out to the number of ports visited and nautical miles she’s covered, there’s no doubt you’ll be impressed.
