Princess Cruises Extends Pause of Cruise Vacations in Australia Through Mid-January 2022
Luxury Cruise Guide
24 September, 2021
With uncertainty around cruising in Australia and New Zealand persisting, Princess Cruises has extended its pause in cruise vacations to the region till January 27, 2022.
As a result of the pause extension, Coral Princess’ voyages through January 17 and Royal Princess and Sapphire Princess seasons through March 2022 have now been canceled.
"It became apparent we would not be able to deliver planned deployment of Royal Princess and Sapphire Princess in Australia before they were due to start their published northern hemisphere voyages," said Deanna Austin, Princess Cruises chief commercial officer.
Guest booked on a canceled cruise 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 percent of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 10 percent of the cruise fare paid (minimum $25) or a full refund to the original form of payment.
Requests must be received through this online form by October 31, 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 said in a press release that it 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 www.princess.com.Find Great Cruise Deals
