Starting with the cruise line’s 2019-2020 Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific Program, going on sale April 17, 2018, this change will effort all subsequent program releases.  The new final payment policy goes into effect aimed at encouraging guests to finalize their cruise bookings earlier and help reduce the likelihood of cruise cancellations.

Cruises through the end of Summer 2019 are unaffected and will continue to use the cruise line’s existing policy. The chart below reflects the current and new final payment policy due dates for Princess Cruises:

Any booking made after the final payment due date above will require the cruise to be paid in full at the time of booking.

John Chernesky from Princess Cruises sent out an email to travel agents informing them of the change that goes into effect on April 17, 2018.

Royal Caribbean was the latest cruise line to update their final payment dates.  They updated their final payment dates earlier this month.  Their changes can be seen here.

These recent changes from Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean put the cruise lines on par with the industry average.
