Cruise really is back, and it feels incredible!

OK, so we know technically it’s been back a little while now thanks to MSC Cruises resuming operations back in May, and more recently, Viking Ocean joining the sailing party, but yesterday things took another step in the forward direction, with both P&O Cruises and Saga Cruises welcoming back guests for the first time in over a year.

Saga Cruises’ ‘Spirit of Discovery’, which originally launched in July 2019, returned to the ocean yesterday from Tilbury Docks on her first round Britain tour since the UK was locked down in March 2020. She will call first at Portsmouth (arriving there today), Portland on June 29, the Isles of Scilly on June 30, and Falmouth on July 1.

Not too far away, in the port of Southampton, Britannia welcomed back P&O Cruises guests for the first time in 15-months as she departed on a four-night summer sailing around the UK coast.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines newest fleet addition is also getting ready to welcome guests, as she will depart Firth of Forth tomorrow (June 29) and set sail for Liverpool, where she will embark guests on her first sailing for the cruise line.

All sailings in the immediate future are closer to home no fly cruises and people are lining up to book. Right now, it’s not so much about the destinations on the cruise, it’s just being back onboard that we’re all craving – cruisers are a loyal bunch.

The NoFlyCruises team haven’t yet had the pleasure of once again setting sail, but the day is getting closer and when it’s here, we’ll be sharing every aspect of the trip with you.

Slowly but surely, our ships are sailing again and it’s a great joy to see people’s pictures from embarkation to dining and pool decks to disembarkation. The future of cruise is looking bright – there is now light at the end of what felt like a never-ending tunnel of lockdown gloom. Many other cruise lines are also due to resume sailings within the next few days and weeks – Celebrity Silhouette and Regal Princess are lingering off the south coast as you read this.
