Southampton UK-based P&O Cruises has announced on its website that "in response to the current restrictions on international travel", planned cruises on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura have been canceled until the end of August, and those on Britannia and Iona until the end of September 2021.
The company will instead be offering a series of short UK holidays at sea, departing from Southampton and sailing around UK coastal waters.
"All guests with bookings on a cancelled cruise will be notified and will automatically receive an enhanced 125% Future Cruise Credit or alternatively can fill in the web form for a 100% refund. The FCC will be added to your account automatically and may be used any time before December 2021 and put towards any holiday on sale at that time."
P&O President Paul Ludlow said:
"More details of dates, prices and the experience on board will be announced later this month, but rest assured, with P&O Cruises free flexible transfers guests can book with confidence."
