Princess Cruises Announces Extension of Pause of Operations in Australia through End of May 2021

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (October 27, 2020) – Due to the uncertainty about when international travel restrictions might be lifted, Princess Cruises is extending its pause in operations for cruises departing from  Australia and New Zealand through  May 31, 2021.

Guests  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  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 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 cancellations, and more information on FCCs and refunds, can be found online at Information on Impacted & Cancelled Cruises.
