Princess Cruises Australia and New Zealand sailings cancelled through May 2021

   October 28, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

Due to the current uncertainty about when international travel restrictions amid the Coronavirus/COVID crisis might be lifted, Princess Cruises announced it is extending its pause in operations for sailings departing from Australia and New Zealand through May 31, 2021.

Passengers will receive a refundable FCC (Future Cruise Credit) equivalent to 100% of the fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus Future Cruise Credit equal to 25% of the fare paid. To receive the FCCs, no action is required by the passengers or their travel advisors.  

Alternatively, vacationers can forfeit the bonus FCC offer as well as request a refund for all money paid on the booking. Passengers have until November 30 to elect a refund, or they'll automatically receive the default offer. Princess Cruises will protect travel advisor commissions on bookings for cancelled cruises that were paid in full, in recognition of the role they play in the line’s business.
