P&O Cruises UK announced it had dropped its COVID-vaccination and testing requirements.

In a statement posted on its website, P&O UK confirmed it was no longer mandatory for passengers to show proof of full vaccination/pre-departure COVID test.

However, voyage J301 (Arcadia’s World Cruise), Classic Southern Hemisphere Journeys or fly-cruises still require COVID measures.

Vaccination is no longer required for the majority of P&O UK's voyages, but the company still "highly recommends" all passengers are up-to-date with vaccinations/boosters when eligible/where available.

"If you’re displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or feel unwell in the days leading up to your holiday, we highly recommend that you take a Covid-19 test before you travel and only travel to the ship if this is negative.

"If you’re symptomatic on the day of embarkation, we ask that you declare this to terminal or check-in staff."
