P&O Cruises have extended their suspension of all sailings until mid-November after the Foreign & Commonwealth Office are advising all holidaymakers to avoid cruises due to the pandemic.
Two trips with longer itineraries which were due to resume in January 2021 have now been suspended and all sailings have been cancelled until 12 November.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said, “It is clear that whilst the guidance is in place it is not advisable for us to resume operations.
“As well as cancelling all cruises up until 12 November 2020 we will, sadly, also be cancelling Aurora’s Caribbean and South America Adventure and Arcadia’s World Cruise.
“Given long-term planning, combined with the complexity and length of these long-haul itineraries and evolving border restrictions, we need to ensure that we adhere to the guidance as it stands.
“I know that these January cruises, in particular, are holidays of a lifetime and we are so sorry for the disappointment that these cancellations will cause.”
