Britannia has three main dining rooms. All three
dining rooms use the same menus and feature P&O
Cruises silver service.
The Oriental Restaurant is located at the stern of the
ship. For dinner, it follows the traditional shipboard
dining system. Under this system, each guest is
assigned a specific table during one of two seatings
(6:30 and 8:30). The main advantages of this system
are that over the course of the cruise, the guests come
to know their table companions and the waiter staff
comes to know each guest's preferences.
On gala nights, the Oriental and the other main dining
rooms have six course meals with suggestions by
celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
The Oriental is also open for breakfast and for
afternoon tea on an open seating basis.
The Peninsular Restaurant, midships on Deck 6, uses a flexible dining system called "Freedom Dining" for dinner. Under
this system, guests can dine any time the restaurant is open. You can eat early one night, late the next. This option is
particularly useful on days when the ship is in port as you do not have to be concerned about returning late from ashore and
missing your dinner seating. However, there is no guarantee that you will have the same waiters or the same table each
evening. The Peninsular is open for breakfast and lunch (sea days) on an open seating basis
