'Overwhelming' demand for P&O Cruises domestic sailings

P&O Cruises says it has gained an 'overwhelming' number of bookings for its recently announced summer season of domestic coastal cruises.

There has immediately been huge demand as reservations went live this week.

The high demand led to 'technical issues' on its website for some time, although travel agents were still able to make bookings.

Three, four and seven night cruises, on flagship Britannia and brand new ship Iona, will set sail from Southampton from June to September.

 "It is very demonstrable evidence that a holiday at sea, with all that it has to offer, is a popular and much longed-for option this summer," said P&O Cruises President Paul Ludlow.

"We always hoped that these domestic cruises would be popular, given the uncertainty around holidays abroad, but we have never before seen such significant and immediate demand."

"We have spent so long working towards this point and we all just can't wait to see our ships sailing once again, it's been a very long year."
