The one where P&O Cruises said farewell to Poum…

The port of Emerald Bay (Poum) has been cancelled from P&O Cruises’ South Pacific itineraries for the remainder of 2011 with the cruise line basing their decision on “ongoing tribal disputes on the island.”

Affected passengers have been notified accordingly of the amended itineraries with the P&O Cruises website reflecting the change by removing mention of the port on their ‘Destinations’ page.

Mystery Island and Santo, Vanuatu have replaced Poum on affected voyages with the cruise line monitoring the situation moving forward.
