Due to ongoing international travel restrictions, Princess Cruises has announced that it has canceled the following cruises:
- California Coast and Mexico sailings on Ruby Princess through August 21, 2021
- Caribbean voyages on Caribbean Princess through August 21, 2021
- The remaining 2021 Mediterranean season on Enchanted Princess
Princess is continuing its discussion with various United States and Canadian government officials to try and preserve part of this year’s Alaska season.
“We continue to have constructive discussions with the CDC but still have many questions that remain unanswered. We are working diligently to resume sailing in the U.S. and meet the CDC guidelines,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “We know our guests are just as eager as we are to begin sailing, and we appreciate their patience as we get close to resuming cruising.”
Those booked on a now-canceled cruise can be moved to an equivalent cruise later this year, or one in 2022. The rebooking process will have the added benefit of protecting the guests’ 2021 fare on the replacement cruise.
Alternatively, passengers can choose a future cruise credit equivalent to 100 percent of the cruise fare paid, plus an additional non-refundable bonus future cruise credit equal to 10 percent of the cruise fare paid. The third option is a full refund to the original form of payment.
Requests must be received through this online form by June 15, 2021, or passengers will automatically receive the future cruise credit option.
Future cruise credits can be used on any cruise booked by and sailing by December 31, 2022.
This summer, Princess Cruises is still planning to operate UK coastal cruises aboard Regal Princess out of Southampton.
