You carry them to muster, they show you how to put them on. You then practice putting them on. Then take them off straight after and return them to your cabin.

Boarding Britannia at Southampton
Has anyone ever arrived early for Britannia and got on earlier than their boarding times?

As a matter of interest do people tip the porters at Southampton? We normally give them a few pounds but not sure if that is enough. Last time they took the suitcases so quickly we didn’t have time...

A bit concerned about you saying no turndown service as we are on Magnifica soon and the grandchildren will be sleeping on sofa bed. I just asked the question on here was the sofa bed made up every...
Sofa beds for kids
Am I correct in assuming that if you have a sofa bed for the kids the Cabin Steward will make it up in the evening while you are eating and take it down in the morning when they make up the room?
That’s it thanks

Room Service
Is room service chargeable or does it depend on what package you have. What about breakfast, I assume that is free on room service. On Magnifica soon.

Thanks, is there a promenade deck? As we normally do a couple of miles round the promenade deck after breakfast and lunch. Walking around the top deck is just not the same.
Okay thanks but they are there then?

Magnifica deck plan question
This may seem a really stupid question but looking at the deck plan there doesn’t seem to be any public toilets as on all other ships we have been on. I was just thinking if you are in the theatre...

We are on the cruise before you and some family members have a time of 1/4 to 6 to board which to me is much too late for a family with young children to board, unpack, get to muster and eat before...
Southampton check in time
Travelling with family including two young children. We have a check in time of 13.00 hrs they have 17.45 hrs. Any suggestions? 1/4 to 6 at night is such a rediculous boarding time especially for...

I for one am a bit disappointed in this Status Match, we matched with our P & O Loyalty because it was our highest one, 150 days, and they gave us 200 points which put us on Classic Level. Having...

Well I phoned and queried it and they have now given us 2000 points so still on the lowest, Classic level. It must be pot luck what level you are put on.

Will do, I’m going with an open mind and will try not to compare to the other lines we have been on.

Thanks everyone, I think they must have made a mistake with ours as have only given us 200 points and put us on Classic. I think I will phone them on Monday and ask.

No it clearly says on our info 200 points. That’s why I think it must be wrong. It says Classic on ours.

Is it worth contacting them and asking why only classic?
