Photography has always played an important role on Britannia. While she was in service, there was always a 'Yottie' appointed, nicknamed 'Snaps', to take photographs of life on board the Royal Yacht.
In keeping with this tradition, we now have our own Photographer in Residence, who has been capturing our very own Weekly 'Snaps' - a collection of snapshots of life around the ship today.

Visitors enjoy taking steps up the Royal Brow, where the Royal Family and their guests boarded Britannia.
Senior Facilities Officer, Ricky, polishing the bronze statue of Ellis 'Norrie' Norrell MVO RVM, Britannia's longest serving Royal Yachtsman who served on board for 34 years.
Our soups including carrot and flat-field mushroom, accompanied by smoked paprika potato wedges, are just one reason to stop in the glorious Tearoom.
The Royal Marines' bunk beds in their Barracks, with instruments and items from some of the 26 different uniforms they wore according to Royal protocol.
Sink into an indulgent bath on board Fingal, a decadent getaway at our five-star hotel and former lighthouse tender in Leith.
The Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar's breakfast menu is a joy to start the day with. Try our Eggs Florentine.
As part of our commitment to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint, Fingal is proud to work with Belu Water, who provide a water filtration system to our hotel and through their work with WaterAid, bring clean water to communities around the world.
