Michele Andjel from P&O Cruises told Wessex FM: 

"All our ships are in UK waters, they go out periodically on marine operations, for example to make water.

"The ship is berthed in Southampton and will stay at sea until returning back to Southampton on the 29th April."

This comes after the British Cruise Line company announced that they are suspending all of their cruises until 31st July. 

A video from the company's president Paul Ludlow was posted on their Twitter page.

This is the third time they have suspended operations due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

P&O were meant to resume sailing on 11th April and then extended it to 15th May.
