P&O Cruises replaces Tripoli in winter itineraries

Due to the current unrest in Libya P&O Cruises has cancelled all three scheduled calls to Tripoli.

Adonia’s call to Tripoli on December 30, 2011 has been replaced with a call to La Goulette, Tunisia on December 31, 2011. To accommodate this change it has been necessary to alter the call dates for Haifa, Ashdod and Malta. The amended itinerary is as follows:

Departing on December 20, cruise no. D115 calls in Piraeus, Limassol, Ashdod, Haifa, Port Said, Alexandria, Malta, La Goulette, Salerno and Naples.

The call to Tripoli on January 11, 2012 as part of Oriana’s X201 world cruise departing on January 5, 2012 has also been cancelled and is replaced by Naples and Malta.

The full world cruise is priced from £8,804 per person based on two sharing an inside cabin, and includes £500 per person on board spending money.


The 18 night Southampton to Dubai sector of the world cruise (XAQ) departs on January 5, 2012, and the amended itinerary is as follows:

Southampton, Oporto, Naples, Malta, Port Said, Suez Canal, Suez, Sharm el Sheikh, Muscat and Dubai.

Prices start at £1,687 per person based on two sharing an inside cabin, cruise only, and includes £45 on board spending money.

Oceana’s Tripoli call on March 3, 2012 on cruise E203 has been replaced with Alexandria. Departing Southampton on Sunday February 26, 2012, the ports of call in the 24 night cruise are now Southampton, Cadiz, Alexandria, Port Said, Limassol, Ashdod, Haifa, Piraeus, Katakolon, Messina, Valencia, Lisbon, Southampton.

P&O Cruises will continue to monitor the situation in Libya and if it improves and it is deemed safe to call in Tripoli, it will return to the original published itineraries.
