  1. Just returned from a 15 night trip on Britannia. My wife and I wanted to use the Retreat, so we booked it as soon as we got on board. We were given card numbers 43 and 44. We found out later that they only sold 60 cards in total. You cannot book it online - it has to be done at the Spa Reception on deck 5. We were also advised that no day-passes were sold. The other thing we encountered was that they tried to charge us £240 each for the 14 days, but I had already downloaded the Retreat PDF document from the P & O web site (Britannia/Life on Board/Spa/Retreat) which clearly states the cost as £400 per couple. If other passengers weren't aware, and we spoke to one couple who definitely were not, then the Spa management could have overcharged by almost £2,500 for the 30 couples that they allowed in. We found the Retreat was more sunny than shaded - several people were battling to stay out of the sun. Hope that helps.

  3. We sailed on Britannia out of Southampton on 27 October for 15 nights. I used my Barclaycard at check-in and it was accepted without any problems. Now home, account agreed and paid. Hope that helps.
