P&O Cruises and Cunard have further extended their respective operational suspensions through 31 July as a result of the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic, parent Carnival Corp has confirmed.
All P&O guests with holidays booked to depart up to 31 July will receive a 125% future cruise credit (FCC), as will all Cunard guests booked on any cancelled voyage. FCCs will be valid for any sailing to the end of March 2022.
Ionafest, P&O’s floating "festival at sea", which had been due to take place onboard new ship Iona from 4 July to tie in with the ship’s naming ceremony in Southampton, has also been postponed.
“With the current lockdown in place and government guidelines around the world advising against travel, it is necessary to extend the pause in our operations for all sailings up to and including July 31 2020," said P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow.
