RCI is very family orientated, but again, easy going.
Don't forget to...

No, it was with P&O, part of Carnival Co, on a Med cruise out of the UK. There's no closed loop deal out of the UK, as almost everyone has a passport from being a baby.

Yes, Celebration and Spirit.
Plus Costa Europa, which is Dream (possibly because it seemed they were going to buy NCL Dream, but it fell through), and Majesty, the old NCL Majesty.

I think most P&O ships now have a Costa Coffee shop on board, which appears to be the favourite coffee in the UK, so I'd be very surprised if Britannia had something different. When you buy a coffee...
