Holidaymakers with P&O Norway cruises can relax and look forward to their trips, as the strike by harbour pilots ended on Friday night, according to Norwegian Coast Guard Web site Kystverket.

From now on the schedules for P&O cruise liners will be as originally planned for the Adonia and Azura boats.

Customers had to endure cancelled cruise lines as well as itinerary changes, as the strikes affected several ports including those at Tromsø and Alesund, as well as Oslo Fjord, which was closed.

Disruption to cruise lines by unexpected problems can be protected against with specific cruise travel insurance.

The good news is that customers who cancelled their P&O cruises, can take up their bookings again by phoning the reservation line or going to the Southampton cruise terminal, the company started on Facebook.

P&O altered times of cruise times on Saturday from Southampton for the weekend Fjords trip, to a later departure time of eight-o-clock and check-in time of seven o-clock, to try to account for the reinstating of the cruise.
