More Cruises Cancelled by P&O Australia

P&O Cruises has decided to extend its suspension on operations to December 2, 2020, due to on-going travel restrictions and country limitations. By extending now it means guests can plan better for the future knowing that that the cruise line will be fully ready for when cruises resume.

P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell, said:

“It is clear that society is not yet ready to return to sailing and we will continue to liaise with governments and public health experts as all align on how people should gather and holiday,” Mr Myrmell said.

“Like our loyal guests, we remain hopeful that the start of summer will bring new opportunities for the entire travel and tourism industry, which contributes so much to many regional economies around Australia.”

“We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our guests who are looking forward to being back onboard as much as we are.  In the meantime, we are trying to provide guests with as much certainty as possible and flexibility around their bookings while we all wait for the day when cruising resumes.”

The further cancellations impact the Pacific Explorer, Pacific Adventure, Pacific Dawn, and Pacific Aria, a total of 20 cruises. The cruise line is contacting guests who are impacted and will inform them of the options available for rebooking or refunds as applicable. There is an online tracking tool provided by P&O so guests can find out the status of any expected Future Cruise Credit (FCC).
