P&O Cruises cancels sailings until spring 2021


P&O Cruises announced today that it was cancelling all cruises until next April in response to the current uncertainty around European ports of call.

The cruise line had been hoping to restart Caribbean cruises in February and cruises from Southampton next March.

But it said this morning that it felt it was right to announce the further cancellations now as final payments for these cruises are due very soon.

President Paul Ludlow said: "With hopeful news headlines clearly we do not want to extend our pause in operations any further than absolutely necessary, but given the ever changing guidance around international travel and the varying regulations in many European ports of call we felt it prudent to cancel these additional dates.

"In addition, as the final payments are due for these cruises very soon we felt it was the right thing to do for our guests.

"We are so sorry to disappoint those who were due to travel but really hope they will re-book for later in the year or for our new programme of 2022 holidays which went on sale earlier this month with strong demand, showing great confidence in cruising in the future."

All guests on a cancelled cruise will be notified and will automatically receive a 125% Future Cruise Credit or alternatively a 100% refund by filling out a web form, said the cruise line.

Details of cancellations can be found on this page on the P&O website.

The Foreign Office is continuing to advise against all ocean-going cruises.
