Breakfast, the most important meal of the day! Especially aboard a cruise ship, you need to sustain yourself for all the exploring and further eating of the day!
Those of you making your return to Cruising this summer, aboard P&O Britannia, will have lots of choice for places to eat your breakfast!
Let me give you 5 idea
- The Horizon Restaurant, on the Lido deck, Deck 16.
Though currently we’re not sure how buffets will work in a post Covid cruising world, some cruises seem to have adapted them to be a served buffet, with staff dishing out the food you want. In the Horizon, a continental breakfast is served from 06:30 to noon then cooked items are served from 0700-1100. The Horizon always seems to be a popular place to breakfast. The choice is immense, take a wander round to the different stations. You may be lucky enough to enjoy your breakfast on a table next to the floor to ceiling windows, a beautiful view out to sea from the 16th deck, or if we have warm weather this summer there are plenty of places for you to sit outside too, either around the Sunset Bar or out around the Riveria / Lido Pools.
2. The Peninsular or Oriental Restaurant, aft and midship, Tween Deck, Deck 6.
If your eyes are bigger than your stomach or you’d prefer a more refined breakfast you must head to one of the main dining restaurants for your breakfast. The Peninsular or Oriental restaurants are open from approx 07:30 til 09:30 depending on port or sea days. You’ll be seated on a table size of your choice (if you’re not a morning person you can always request a table for two) and you can then enjoy a table service of breakfast. Perhaps try one of the breakfast dishes of the day, or treat yourself to your favourite cooked selection.
Towards the beginning of your cruise, I would put good money on the Oriental restaurant being much quieter for breakfast. People not familiar with the lay out of Britannia tend to find the Oriental restaurant many times, accidentally, not so often on purpose, due to its location on its own aft on Deck 6.
3. Grab and Go, opposite the Ice Cream counter, Near the Riveria pool, Lido Deck, Deck 16.
If you are planning a day by the pool and do not want to leave your sunlounger why not treat yourself to a grab and go breakfast from the poolside grills on deck 16. Grab and go breakfast items are served from 08:00 to 11:00 and you won’t miss a moment of Summer sunshine!
4. Breakfast in Bed – delivered to your Cabin at a time to suit you.
You could always treat yourself to breakfast in bed! Fill out the breakfast order form found in your cabin, leave outside your cabin door before you retire for the night and be woken in the morning with a delicious feast of breakfast goodies! Top tip! Make sure you take the do not disturb sign off before you catch some beauty sleep! So that the Room service steward can knock on the door to deliver your food.
5. The Epicurean restaurant , Forward, Lido Deck, Deck 16.
Suite passengers have an extra breakfast option. Treat yourself to a delicious, luxurious start to the day served alongside a wonderful 16th floor forward view! Nothing is too much bother, service is impeccable and the special menu includes extra little treats to make your Suite experience just that little bit more magical.
Breakfast is most definitely the most important meal of the day, treat yourself!
