P&O Cruises Britannia is Red, White And Blue

P&O Cruises Britannia Livery

P&O Cruises has put the finishing touches to the brand new livery on its newest ship in the fleet – Britannia, the largest ship built for Britain which will be officially named in a glittering ceremony in Southampton in March 2015.

The bold new look on the bow features the world’s largest contemporary version of the Union Flag, which required the following volumes of paint for the newest look to its ship: 280 litres of red paint , 40 litres red for the shadow, 80 litres of blue, 20 litres of blue for the shadow and
160 litres for the big logo of P&O Cruises on the front of the bow.

The ship will also have two distinctive blue funnels carrying an illuminated rising sun motif which depicts the Oriental part of the Peninsular and Oriental (P&O) name on the company’s coat of arms.

When working to full capacity, Britannia’s four engines will generate 62.4 Megawatts or 84,000 horsepower which is equivalent to the power generated by 168 supercars, allowing the 141,000 ton ship to cruise at a speed of 22 knots.

As P&O Cruises refreshes and re-energises its brand, the company is to update the livery across all eight ships to celebrate, more clearly, its British credentials.
