Your Options With Princess
As a result of their covid suspension, Princess is making a very strong offer to encourage guests to sail in the future. If you are impacted by this Covid suspension and have paid in full, you will automatically receive a future cruise credit (FCC) for 100% of the cruise fare plus a non-refundable bonus FCC of 25% of the cruise fare.
If your cruise was not paid in full, Princess will issue a FCC for the full value of your payments plus a matching bonus FCC which can be used through May 1, 2022.
If you prefer, you may also request a refund of what you paid toward your cruise, but you’ll be passing up the bonus FCC. Be aware that there is a deadline for requesting a refund. Click here for the Princess refund form.
Princess is taking health and safety protocols seriously in order to resume sailing as soon as possible while keeping guests and crew safe. When you sail Princess you can expect better health screening procedures, enhanced sanitizing in the terminals and on board the ship, social distancing, advanced air filtration systems, along with state of the art medical facilities and equipment with medical personnel trained in the latest techniques and armed with the latest information.
