(Sharecast News) - Cruise operator Carnival said on Thursday that its P&O Cruises Australia division was "maintaining its optimism" for the ultimate restart of cruising despite extending its current operational pause to departures on or before 18 June.

Carnival stated that guests with bookings affected by the pause extension were being given "as much notice as possible" to provide greater certainty around holiday plans.

P&O president Sture Myrmell said: "While we are becoming increasingly confident in the restart of cruising in Australia, we are continuing with the realistic and pragmatic approach we have adopted previously.

"We know from our contact with guests and through our social media channels that they, like us, can't wait to be cruising again and our crew can't wait to again be delivering exceptional cruise holiday experiences.

Carnival added that P&O would make contact with affected guests, either directly or via their appointed travel agent, to let them know of the pause extension and of the options available to them.

As of 0815 GMT, Carnival shares were down 0.11% at 1,396.50p.
