The UK’s Largest Cruise Line Cancels All Cruises Until Next Year

The UK cruise industry is pretty much shut down until next year after P&O Cruises announced all cruises are cancelled until 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic and potentially devastating impact on the cruise industry, and that impact goes far beyond cancelled voyages and the suspension of sailings worldwide. Cruise Travel magazine, the world’s leading cruise vacation print magazine, has ceased publication and will no longer be available to inspire, encourage, and inform cruise passengers and travel lovers.

Cruise Travel Ceases Publication

According to a message on the magazine’s website, a lack of advertising coupled with the uncertainty in the cruise industry has forced the end of Cruise Travel’s publication. The last issue mailed to subscribers was the March/April 2020 issue with features on Norwegian Encore, Christmas market cruises, Athens, and more.

About Cruise Travel

Cruise Travel debuted in 1979 and has brought cruise lovers more than 240 issues of outstanding cruise information. While different features have come and gone over the years, popular features of the magazine’s most recent layout have included:

  • Port of the Month details with personalized insights and recommendations
  • Cruise of the Month outlining an incredible sailing and its ports
  • Ship of the Month with fun facts, deck plans, photos, and detailed overviews of a single vessel
  • Homeport spotlights with tips for readers embarking from different ports
  • Letters from readers covering a variety of issues in the cruise travel industry
  • Cruise news and updates from all types of lines, ports, and organizations
  • Extra features and articles offering different viewpoints for all things cruise-related

A particular favorite of Cruise Travel readers has been the magazine’s annual directory issue with detailed information on not just cruise ships and cruise lines, but themed cruises, special interests, and more. Having this information in one location has been invaluable for cruise travel planning for decades.

Despite the cessation of the print publication, cruise enthusiasts can still purchase a subscription to Cruise Travel’s full digital archive. This allows readers to enjoy hundreds of past issues and all their articles, ideal for enjoying cruises at any time from a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Staying Updated About Cruises

Cruise Travel subscribers who still have time remaining on their subscription are to have that time fulfilled by a different travel magazine, but have not yet been notified of which one or how the subscription transfer will occur. The replacement magazine will be contacting subscribers directly with details.
