At P&O Cruises the health, safety and well-being of our valued guests, the communities we visit and our loyal crew, is a top priority. Our health
and safety practices have always been of the highest standard. As our understanding of COVID-19 is still evolving, we are working closely with
some of the best minds in medical science, public health and infectious disease control to understand the challenges posed by the virus and how
to best mitigate its spread.
When we resume cruising, it will be with enhanced health measures. developed in conjunction with government health authorities, public health experts, local ports and the Cruise Lines International Association. In addition, our intention is to restart operations with vaccination - only cruises for guests and crew. The policy will be developed once the pathway for a return to cruising is clearer, but the broad intent is to require proof of vaccination for those in the population eligible to be vaccinated at the time. As Australia and the world re-opens social venues, we will continue to learn from their example and adjust these health and safety practices accordingly.
Some of the new safety measures we’re considering are below.
