Today, the Department for Transport of the UK Government has updated their cruise advice with a domestic cruising page on their website.  

The page confirms that domestic cruises in the UK will have the green light to operate with certain restrictions on passengers and passenger numbers. This will become possible from May 17th 2021 and not before. 

Domestic cruises are stipulated as those that depart from and return to UK ports and they are currently restricted to UK ports of call. They may operate beyond UK waters but will not be able to stop.  After the May 17th date cruises will be able to operate with up to 1,000 people or 50% capacity, whichever is lower. This is a passenger limit and will not apply to crew. Further COVID-security will be enforced but from 21st June all these measures will potentially be lifted. 

Full details can be found on the government site: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-cruise-ship-travel
