P&O UK replaced its 2022 world voyage with a 40-night journey to the Caribbean and a 12-night sailing to  Portugal and the Canary Islands.

The voyages onboard Aurora go on sale on July 6 and will depart roundtrip from Southampton (England UK) on February 22 and April 1, 2022.

According to P&O's president Paul Ludlow, it was “not possible” to operate the scheduled 2022 world voyage because of the “complex logistics” involved with a global itinerary.
