Princess Cruises has announced that, in continued response to the impact of the COVID-19 global outbreak and the recent order from the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the line is cancelling all voyages due to depart up to and including June 30, 2020.
Princess Cruises had previously announced a voluntary pause for two months (60 days), impacting voyages departing March 12 to May 10, 2020.
In addition the cruise line is cancelling all Princess Alaska Gulf cruises and cruisetours. The five wilderness lodges, trains and buses operated by Princess in Alaska will not open this summer. The line will however continue its roundtrip sailings from Seattle to Alaska on Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess.
Each Princess ship will have a unique return to service date based on the previously published cruise itineraries with some modifications, departing after July 1, 2020. Details about the cancelled voyages can be found here.
Princess Cruises is offering two cancellation options. Guests currently booked on these cancelled voyages, who have paid in full, will receive a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid and as an added incentive, an additional 25% FCC. Guests must use their credits on a cruise that sails on or before May 1, 2022. No action is required for guests to receive this offer and they will be notified by email once the credits have been issued.
Alternatively, guests can receive a full refund for all monies paid in full on their booking through this online form. Requests must be received by May 31, 2020, or they will receive the Future Cruise Credit option. Guests who have not yet paid in full will receive a refund of all monies paid.
