P&O Cruises says British passengers on two of its cruise liners this summer will need be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before joining any voyage.

According to Marine Industry News, it is the cruise line’s “strong expressed preference” that British guests boarding the Britannia and Iona in Southampton have received two doses of an approved vaccine at least seven days prior to departure.

Proof of such will be required at the terminal, as will travel insurance — any passenger without either will be denied boarding, the company adds.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
