The UK based contemporary market unit in Carnival Corp. & plc, P&O Cruises, will operate just one world cruise in both 2018 and 2019 and deploy Aurora, which has performed the 2nd such cruise of the cruise line, on itineraries to South America instead.
The remaining world voyage will depart in January of both 2018 and 2019 and run westbound through Panama and Suez Canal. It will be operated by Arcadia, which has done a world voyage each year for a few years in a row.
Aurora will sail on a 65-night South America cruise on January 3, 2018 and a 55-night cruise to the same region a year later. After these, the ship will operate shorter voyages to Norway and the Caribbean.
