Cruise company Carnival said British unit P&O Cruises had extended a pause on operations until 12 November, citing restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic. It had also cancelled two long cruises due to depart in January: Aurora's Caribbean and South America Adventure and Arcadia's World Cruise. Carnival's Italian unit Costa, meanwhile, said it was planning to restart its operations from Italian ports gradually on 6 September.

That ship would be followed by Costa Diadema, on September 19, operating seven-day cruises from Genoa to Italy and Malta.
