P&O Cruises Ventura has decided to resume operations as it sets sail for the Canary Islands as the demand for international cruise holidays grows. Half of the P&O Cruises fleet is now in service as Ventura joins Iona and Britannia, both of which sailed a series of summer UK coastal cruises and have been sailing internationally since September 25.
Azura will also resume sailing in December, joining Britannia for the Caribbean season. Paul Ludlow, President, P&O Cruises said in a statement that 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.
He mentioned that due to demand and the resounding endorsement of the first international holidays on Iona and Britannia the company has opened up increased capacity to holiday with the line. He said that the cruise line is proud to have four ships sailing internationally this year giving guests a greater choice of where and when they travel with P&O Cruises for winter sun.
