Princess Cruises is extending their pause in cruising in Australia through May 31, 2021. This includes all cruises departing from Australia and New Zealand.
The cruise line said that the reason for the additional cancelations was due to the uncertainty about when international travel restrictions will be lifted.
Guests who were booked on one of the canceled cruises will receive a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 25% of the cruise fare paid. To receive the above FCCs, no action is required by the guest or their travel advisor.
Alternatively, guests can forfeit the bonus FCC offer and request a full refund for all money paid on their booking by using this online form. Guests have until November 30, 2020, to elect a refund, or they will automatically receive the default offer listed above.
Princess Cruises will protect travel advisor commissions on bookings for cancelled cruises that were paid in full, in recognition of the critical role they play in the cruise line’s business and success.
