UK-Based Cruising Poised To Make A Post-Covid Come-Back

The Cruise People Ltd 

This ietter is being sent this week to our UK clients:

I am writing to you today to share with you some great news regarding future travel and cruising. Although the global Covid-19 Pandemic is not yet over, the UK’s successful vaccination programme will now make it possible to start planning our lives and holidays once more.

As you have booked with us before, I am particularly pleased to bring you news that, starting from Monday 17th May 2021 (the same day that British hotels are due to re-open) cruising from UK ports will be backed by the UK Government‘s Ministry of Transport.Taking cruises outside the UK will still be frowned upon, however. Companies like Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises, Hurtigruten and Cunard Line are now designing and will soon be offering UK to UK sailings for UK residents, complete with all necessary protocols for passenger health.

In the course of this, we will also be pleased to bring you some brand-new cruise and voyage offers to consider at your leisure. We have also added some fantastic and exciting new polar and expedition voyages to our already extensive travel menu for 2021, and many of our voyages also come with no single supplement.

We very much look forward to being able to serve you again, so please call to enquire about the latest availabilities and to discuss your next unforgettable and well-deserved holiday voyage. From ultra-luxury cruising, polar and expedition voyages, Transatlantic sailings to freighter travel we’ve got you covered and can’t wait to welcome you on board one of our great ships soon.

Itineraries and fares for the summer cruises will be advisedin late March. Please let us know on 020 7723 2450 or at cruisepeopleltd@outlook.com if you would like to be advised when the information is available with the reference UKSC.

With very best wishes

    No sign of any May cruises on Fred Olsen website!

  2. Hi Redvers, most of the cruise lines have cancelled earlier itineraries and the only May cruises remaining seem to be Viking Cruises’ Viking Venus; https://www.luxurytraveladvisor.com/cruises/viking-to-resume-operations-special-u-k-only-sailings Kevin

    • PS: Fred. Olsen’s previously advertised five cruises have changed into 11 3-, 4-, 5- and 7-day cruises, mainly on the Borealis from Liverpool and the Bolette from Dover – in July and August.
