All the crew of the P&O Cruises UK-operated ship Oceana will remain onboard for 3 months while the vessel is docked at North Shields ' Northumbrian Quay (Port of Tyne England). The ship is there since early-June 2020.

With voyages cancelled until at least October 15, 2020 (due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic) P&O UK said its principal UK homeport Southampton has no berthing space for all liners, so Oceana was relocated to North Shields and will stay there for around 3 months.
