This date will see ship Britannia set sail from Southampton on a three-night short break.
These UK cruises are set to sail throughout the summer with dates available to book until late September at the time of writing.
However, the extension of lockdown means the 3,600-passenger ship is only allowed to carry 1,000 guests until the cap is removed on July 19.
Consequently, P&O has said it will be offering alternative dates for some passengers.
Brand new cruise ship Iona will make her maiden voyage on August 7.
This will be a seven-night non-stop cruise via the Scottish isles followed by further seven-night itineraries until September 18.
These sailings are for UK resident COVID-19 vaccinated guests only.
What's more, all passengers must have comprehensive cruise-specific travel insurance.
However, international cruises for the summer have been cancelled.
According to P&O's latest travel advice, four ships have had their sailings axed until the end of August with two more ships' voyages cancelled until late September.
The cruise line announced: "We are sorry to announce that cruises on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura have been cancelled until the end of August 2021 and on Britannia and Iona until late September 2021.
"We have extended our pause in response to the current restrictions on international travel."
For those cruise passengers worried about their cruises after these dates going ahead, P&O said it would update travellers.
The advice states: "We are constantly monitoring guidance on international travel and the ports we visit and will update guests if any changes are necessary."
