President Paul Ludlow said: “With evolving restrictions on travel from the UK, unfortunately it is necessary to cancel these itineraries.

“These further cancellations vary according to ship as well as complexity and length of itineraries, advice and guidance regarding ports of call and current air availability for fly/cruises.

“We are continuing to monitor the overall situation closely and will certainly reintroduce cruises should the opportunity arise and it is feasible to do so.”

With evolving restrictions on travel from the UK, unfortunately it is necessary to extend our current pause until the beginning of next year.

P&O has cancelled all Caribbean cruises until the end of January 2021 as well as all cruises from and to Southampton until February.

Cruises to Arcadia and Aurora have been cancelled through to the end of their spring world cruises.
