When on board, explore Britannia’s beautiful State Apartments which include two special rooms: the Queen’s favourite room, the Sun Lounge; and the stunning State Dining Room where Her Majesty entertained world leaders and celebrities from Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela to Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra.
