Princess Cruises Extends Pause of Global Ship Operations On Select Sailings in Australia, Canada, California & Pacific Coast and Taiwan

Princess Cruises cancellations: Impacted Sailings

Due to extension of the closure of cruise ports in regions around the world and other factors impacting international travel, Princess Cruises is extending its pause in cruise operations with respect to the following voyages:

  • All cruises sailing in and out of Australia through mid-September on Sea Princess, Majestic Princess, Sun Princess and Sapphire Princess
  • All cruises in and out of Vancouver and Seattle in September and October on Coral Princess, Emerald Princess, Grand Princess, Royal Princess, Ruby Princess and Star Princess
  • Pacific and California Coast 7-day roundtrip cruises from San Francisco departing in September and October 2020 on Star Princess
  • All roundtrip cruises from Keelung, Taiwan, departing August 2020 on Majestic Princess

Refunds or Future Cruise Credit

Guests currently booked on these canceled voyages, who have paid Princess in full, will have the option to 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 (not applicable on charter voyages).

For guests who have not paid in full, Princess will Double the Deposit, providing a refundable FCC for the money currently on deposit plus a matching bonus FCC that can be used on any voyage through May 1, 2022. The matching bonus FCC is non-refundable, will not exceed the base cruise fare amount of the currently booked cruise and will have a minimum value of $100 per person.

For Sea Princess, Sun Princess, and Sapphire Princess May and June sailings a different offer was provided.

In order to receive the above FCC no action is required.

Alternatively, guests can request a full refund for all monies paid on their booking through this online form. Requests must be received by June 30, 2020, or guest will be registered for the Future Cruise Credit option.

More Information

Princess 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.

The most current information and instructions for booked guests affected by these Princess cruises cancellations, and more information on FCCs and refunds, can be found online at Information on Impacted & Cancelled Cruises.

Princess had last cancelled several voyages on May 6, 2020, and has paused operations through Summer 2020.

The Princess Cruises cancellations announcement also follows the CDC’s April 10, 2020 extension and modification of their earlier announced No Sail Order, which continues until the earliest of three conditions situations occur:

  • First, the expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that the virus constitutes a public health emergency. 
  • Second, the CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific public health or other considerations. 
  • Or third, 100 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.
