The Port of Dover is supporting its cruise customers by offering lay-by provision for their vessels to help them bring their cruises back home to the UK.
Currently we are hosting two P&O Cruises vessels – Aurora and Oceana. Everyone on board is fit and healthy and the crew are remaining on-board to protect the local community as well as themselves. Food and supplies are being provided by their normal specialist suppliers so there will be no impact on the availability of food and other supplies in local supermarkets.
COVID-19 is having a significant economic impact on all of us in the cruise industry, so it’s important that we work together and support each other as we navigate through some difficult times.
The Port of Dover is pleased to assist P&O Cruises as part of its wider response to the current situation.
