Princess Cruises, the world’s leading international premium cruise line, is extending its pause in cruise vacations in Australia/New Zealand to March 14, 2022, due to the uncertainty around the return of cruising in the region. As a result of the pause extension, four sailings on Coral Princess will be cancelled.
For guests booked on a cancelled cruise, guests have the option to move to an equivalent cruise. The rebooking process will have the added benefit of protecting the guests’ fare on their replacement cruise. Alternatively, guests can choose a future cruise credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 10% of the cruise fare paid (minimum $25 AUD) or a full refund to the original form of payment.
Requests must be received through this online form by November 17, 2021 or guests will automatically receive the FCC option. FCCs can be used on any cruises booked by December 31, 2022 and sailing by April 30, 2023.
Princess will protect travel agent commission on bookings 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.
