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.

Within the Sun Lounge, the ‘Rum Tot’ tub dates from Queen Victoria’s reign. The tub was used on Britannia to issue the Yachtsmen’s daily rum ration up until 1970 when the Navy’s rum issue was abolished.
A beautiful reminder of a day spent touring the five decks is our Britannia snow globe, which can be purchased from the Gift Shop.
