The new series of cruises will depart from the cruise line’s home port of Southampton
P&O Cruises will offer a series of short break and week-long cruises around the UK this summer, departing from the Port of Southampton. Dates and details of the onboard experience will be announced later this month.
“Following recent government announcements and as the vaccine programme is rolled out across the globe, we can all begin to feel a sense of reassurance and hope that this current lockdown period in the UK will come to an end,” said Paul Ludlow, president of P&O Cruises. “Whilst holidays here in the UK will be the first to become a reality we will, of course, gradually see the return of international travel. But first we want guests to be able to enjoy a proper summer holiday at sea.”
Previously announced sailings onboard Arcadia, Aurora and Azura have been cancelled until the end of August, while cruises onboard Britannia and Iona have been cancelled until the end of September.
“I really am so sorry for the disappointment these cancellations will cause but hope that the new UK cruises will enable everyone to enjoy a wonderful holiday this summer,” said Ludlow.
