Bookings are now open for Britain's first cookery school at sea on the new P&O Cruises ship Britannia, as well as availability for Eric Lanlard's afternoon tea and the new Limelight Club. Passengers with holiday bookings may now reserve places in advance through the cruise personaliser site up to three months before departure.

The Cookery Club run in consultation with Britain’s favorite TV chef James Martin is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the best chefs in the business through a series of fully interactive classes inspired by James’s favourite dishes and the destinations Britannia will visit. Classes start from £45 per person up to £100 for a hosted dinner.

Book for master pâtissier Eric Lanlards signature afternoon tea which is a far cry from traditional tea and scones. Expect the likes of edible Earl Grey perfumes, savoury gruyère cheese éclairs with brie, rocket and red onion marmalade, and exotic pop cones topped with orange blossom Persian candy floss. Eric’s unique twist on this classic British institution elevates the humble afternoon tea into something utterly decadent and indulgent. Served at 15.30, book a table for between one to six people from £15 per person.

A first for P&O Cruises, The Limelight Club is an adults only venue that combines great food and entertainment. Passengers can expect a lively and enjoyable evening in the company of some great performers that are exclusive to the Limelight Club whilst enjoying dinner.
