Home News2021 programme taking shape, with cruise ship sailings being added to Port of Southampton schedule, including P&Os Iona

Our 2021 programme was relaunched last March and included some new and re-arranged sailings. Please do check our latest and up-to-date programme online, or if you prefer, download a summary sheet here.

Over the past month cruise ship companies such as Cunard, MSC and P&O have been announcing their 2021 summer schedule for departures out of Southampton, and it is looking likely that Shieldhall will be passing a good number of cruise ships either at berth or on the water! We can look forward to seeing MSC’s Virtuosa (first sailing out of Southampton on Sat 26 June, same date as Shieldhall’s first 2021 sailing) and P&Os Iona, who will make her maiden voyage on Sat 7 August, the same date as Shieldhall’s Needles Cruise. As a result, we are expecting the Needles Cruise to be very popular – please book early to avoid disappointment:
