Think that P&O is going downmarket? Try Virgin!

Recommended Posts

Very interesting. Thanks for posting the link. You do have to hand it to Virgin that they can re-invent anything and some of the initiatives are very clever indeed. I know that red is the brand colour, but it is such a cheap looking colour and an assault on the eyes when used so comprehensively. I have no doubt, however, that our kids would love it.

Here's an update from the man himself. No buffets onboard, free wi-fi, no gratuities. The crew will be paid a salary. Also no single use plastic, including bottled water, straws, stirrers and individual serving packets.

From what I’ve seen Virgin looks massively more upmarket compared to P&O. Even the new P&O ships don’t have much of a wow factor eg. The Britannia atrium feels like sitting in a shopping mall. 

Can't remember seeing a tattoo parlour in the Britannia atrium. Didn't see many people wearing vests in the MDR either.

Can't say I'm overly impressed with what I've seen of the VV Scarlet Lady.

 

Even the decor looks like its trying too hard to be trendy.
