Princess Cruises is canceling its summer Caribbean cruise season amid the pandemic.
The move is part of a wider extension of its pause of global cruise operations, which will apply through the remaining 2020 summer season.
“As the world is still preparing to resume travel, it is with much disappointment that we announce an extension of our pause of global ship operations and the cancellation of cruise vacations for our loyal guests,” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. “Among other disruptions, airlines have limited their flight availability and many popular cruise ports are closed. It saddens us to think about the impact on the livelihood of our teammates, business partners and the communities we visit.”
Those who have already paid for canceled sailings will have “the option to receive a future cruise credit equivalent to 100 percent of the cruise fare paid plus an additional bonus FCC equal to 25 percent of the cruise fare,” the company said.
Guests can, however, also receive a full refund.
