P&O Cruises’ flagship Britannia takes centre stage in tonight’s episode of The Apprentice on BBC One.

The candidates board the ship in Southampton on a short cruise to Bruges where they are challenged to organise their own shore excursions of the city.

Once back on board, they must top up their profit margins by selling souvenirs to become the winning team.

P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said “We are very excited to see Britannia featured in The Apprentice.

“P&O Cruises is an expert in delivering memorable holidays and experiences for guests setting a high benchmark for the candidates to reach.

“Short breaks are the perfect way to get a taste of a cruise holiday and we are very proud to be involved.

“We will be encouraging all our past and present guests to tune in and be part of The Apprentice experience.”
