P&O Cruises has announced two new adults-only cruises on Aurora including a 40-night winter-sun trip around the Caribbean.
The Caribbean cruise will depart Southampton on 20 February 2022 and will feature 16 ports of call, including Madeira, St Kitts, St Lucia, Barbados, Aruba, Dominica, Antigua and Tenerife, before returning to the UK.
Aurora is also to sail on a 12-night Portugal and the Canary Islands cruise from Southampton on 1 April 2022 visiting La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Lisbon.
The new cruises, which go on sale on Tuesday (6 July), replace Aurora’s planned 2022 world cruise which had to be cancelled due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “The Caribbean and Portugal and Canary Islands are hugely popular with P&O Cruises guests so we’re delighted to be giving more options to enjoy some winter sun in early 2022 and on Aurora, our ship exclusively for adults.
“Due to the global travel limitations still in place and the complex logistics involved in a world cruise, many months in advance, sadly it is just not possible to continue to offer this in 2022.
“We’re extremely sorry as we know how much our guests look forward to this trip of a lifetime. As an alternative, booking is open for our 2023 world cruise and we’ll be releasing details of our 2024 world cruise later this year.”
