During this unprecedented period, which has seen cruise lines around the world ground their entire fleet in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus, cruise ships are filling up port terminals around the world until sailings resume, a number of which are docked in the UK.
Find out which ships are currently docked in UK ports below.
Bristol: CMV is docking Marco Polo in Bristol.
Dover: Two P&O Cruises ships, Aurora and Oceana, are currently docked in Dover.
