Nov 20, 2020

Princess Cruises announced today that the company is canceling voyages on all 15 ships in the fleet through March 31, 2021. In a press release, the company said the reason for extending its pause in global operations is to allow more time for the preparation needed for completing required activities by the CDC "Framework for Conditional Sailing Order" prior to sailing and taking into consideration the temporary seven-day cruises cap on itineraries that call at a U.S. port. 

The cruises impacted by the latest cancelations include the following:

  • •All cruises sailing through March 31, 2021
  • •All cruises longer than seven days All cruises longer than seven through November 1, 2021
  • •Diamond Princess cruises departing in and out of Japan through June 25, 2021.


"We are focused on preparing our ships to meet the CDC health and safety requirements for our eventual return to service," said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. "We also appreciate the continued support we have received from our guests, partners and travel advisors, reinforcing for all of us why we do what we do."

 Guests affected by these cancellations will have the option to receive a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid and an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 25% of the cruise fare. To receive the above FCCs, no action is required by the guest or their travel advisor.
