Following the recent Government announcement Simon mentioned in his update last week, 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.

As hospitality opens up and summer holidays can be booked with confidence, P&O Cruises plans to put on sale a series of UK cruises as “the ultimate escape” staycation this summer. The cruises will go on sale later in March.

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. In the meantime, with our Guests remaining incredibly keen to sail with us, we wanted them to be able to enjoy a proper summer holiday at sea with the best in relaxation, entertainment and dining choice. We’ll give the nation a much needed break from these challenging times and a sense of hope for a brighter future.

These sailings will leave from our home port in Southampton and sail around UK coastal waters enjoying the summer sunshine. More details of dates, prices and the experience on board will be announced later this month, but they will, of course, all have flexibility so Guests can book with confidence.

So that we can offer Guests these special UK “ultimate escape” staycations, which we’re positive will have a wide appeal, we need to cancel some of our current published programme of holidays this summer. Cruises on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura have been cancelled until the end of August and on Britannia and Iona until the end of September.

There is no news to share about Cunard’s pause in operations but we will, of course, keep you updated if this changes.
