Two new itineraries replace P&O Cruises’ Aurora’s 2022 world cruise

Aurora’s new cruises, replacing P&O Cruises' 2022 world cruise, go on sale July 6
P&O Cruises’ Aurora will sail the Caribbean, and Portugal and the Canary Islands in 2022 in two new itineraries that replace the world cruise.

‘The Caribbean and Portugal and Canary Islands are hugely popular with P&O Cruises guests,’ explained Paul Ludlow, president, P&O Cruises, ‘so we’re delighted to be giving more options to enjoy some winter sun in early 2022 and on Aurora, our ship exclusively for adults.’

He added, ‘Due to the global travel limitations still in place and the complex logistics involved in a world cruise, many months in advance, sadly it is just not possible to continue to offer this in 2022. We’re extremely sorry…  

Booking is open for our 2023 world cruise and we’ll be releasing details of our 2024 world cruise later this year.’ 

For the new itineraries, bookings open on July 6, 2021. 


Departing February 20, 2022 from home port Southampton, Aurora will spend 40 nights sailing the Caribbean, calling at 16 ports, including: La Coruña; Madeira; St Kitts; Guadeloupe; St Lucia; Grenada; St Vincent; Barbados; Bonaire; Curaçao; Aruba; Dominica; Tortola; St Maarten; Antigua and Tenerife.

The ship will return to Roseau, Dominica for the first time in almost a decade and will visit Aruba and Guadeloupe for the first time in four years.

Prices start at £2,149 per person. 

Portugal and the Canary Islands 

Departing April 1, 2022 on a 12-night cruise from Southampton, Aurora will visit La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Lisbon.

Inside cabins start at £599 per person. 

A  third passenger in the same cabin can travel from £199 on both cruises. 

A new world cruise in 2024

Aurora will sail the Mediterranean, ahead of its 2023 world cruise; a new world cruise for 2024 is set to be announced later this year.
