P&O Cruises’ Ventura resumed sailings on Sunday, departing Southampton for a cruise to the Canary Islands.
Half of the P&O Cruises fleet is now back in action, with Ventura joining Iona and Britannia. Azura will also restart operations in December, when the P&O favourite joins Britannia for a Caribbean season. Arcadia and Aurora will return in 2022,
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “Ventura’s international restart is the result of guest confidence in cruising and is the very latest stage of P&O Cruises sailing resumption as we work towards the return of our full fleet in spring 2022.
“Due to demand and the resounding endorsement of the first international holidays on Iona and Britannia we’ve opened up increased capacity to holiday with us.
“We’re proud to have four ships sailing internationally this year giving our guests a greater choice of where and when they travel with P&O Cruises for winter sun.”
