2021 UK Getaways with P&O Cruises

This year, P&O Cruises are staying local so that they can whisk you away on the ultimate UK getaway. After months of lockdown and putting your travel plans on hold, you deserve a trip to a luxury hotel, a replenishing spa break, mouth-watering dinners and a dazzling show… Luckily, a fabulous cruise holiday with P&O offers all this and so much more.

Setting sail from Southampton, you’ll have the choice of three- and four-night breaks on board their flagship Britannia. Or embark on a week-long escape with Iona for her maiden season.

Wake each morning to a brand-new view, breathe in the crisp sea air and sunbathe (hopefully!) by the pool. What’s more you can do all this with confidence thanks to P&O’s free flexible transfers, enhanced well-being protocols and COVID-19 vaccination policy.

Vaccination policy

Given the advanced progress of the UK vaccination programme, and strongly expressed preference on the part of their guests for this limited series of UK coastal cruises, these sailings on Britannia and Iona will be for UK resident COVID-19 vaccinated guests only. For these cruises, the definition of “vaccinated” is a minimum of seven days following the second dose of the currently approved COVID-19 vaccines being administered.
