Princess Cruises extends the pause in its operations
The company continues to work with the government and port authorities to finalize its restart plans
While Princess Cruises continues to work with the government and port authorities to finalize its plans to return to cruises, the company is extending its cruise vacation pause sailing along the Caribbean coast of California, Mexico and the Mediterranean until June 30, 2021. .
The pause in operation affects the following trips:
Caribbean Princess: Seven-Day Western and Eastern Caribbean Cruises
Enchanted Princess: Seven-Day Mediterranean and Adriatic, Seven-Day Western Mediterranean, and 14-Day Western Mediterranean and Adriatic Medley
Ruby Princess: Seven-Day Classic Coast Cruises from California, seven days on the Mexican Riviera and five days in Cabo San Lucas for getaways
For guests booked on a canceled trip, Princess will offer to transfer guests to the equivalent cruise in 2022. The rebooking process will have the added benefit of protecting guests' 2021 fare on their 2022 trip. Alternatively, guests may choose a future cruise credit (FCC) equal to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable FCC voucher equal to 10% of the cruise fare paid (minimum $ 25 USD) or a full refund to the original price form of payment.
For guests currently booked on a canceled trip where a combo cruise is not available in 2022, guests will automatically receive a refundable future cruise credit (FCC) equal to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable FCC bonus equal to 10% of the cruise fare paid (minimum $ 25). Alternatively, guests can request a full refund to the original form of payment.
Applications must be received via this online form before April 15, 2021 or guests will automatically receive the FCC option. FCCs can be used on any cruise booked and sailing before December 31, 2022.
Princess will transfer the commission earned by travel agents from the canceled cruise in 2021 to the new booking in 2022 for bookings that were paid in full. This convenience is in recognition of the critical role they play in the business and success of the cruise line.
