Why huge P&O cruise ship is moored in Weymouth Bay

P&O Cruises (Logo)The Arcadia ship, usually based in Southampton, arrived off the coast of Weymouth yesterday morning just before 7am – and is expected to be a regular site for beach lovers for the foreseeable future.

P&O Cruises has said the ship, which was built in 2004, will not set sail again until this summer – and is currently moored in Weymouth Bay due to a number of cruises being cancelled due to staff shortages.

A spokeswoman from the cruise ship firm said: “Arcadia is in Weymouth Bay following the impact on airlines and the wider hospitality industry caused by Covid-19 which has resulted in disruption to crew members available to join our ships”.
