Princess Cruises has announced the cancellation of world cruises on two cruise ships in early 2021.
World Cruises Cancelled
Princess Cruises has decided to cancel its world cruises in early 2021 on Island Princess and Pacific Princess. This comes due to restrictions and limitations with border and port access determined by government and health authorities and the continued uncertainty of airline travel.
Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president, said:
“We share in the disappointment of this cancellation for guests of our world cruises because it’s a pinnacle cruise vacation experience, booked by some of our most loyal guests.”
The cancelled voyages also include repositioning cruises and any related segments of the full cruises:
- Island Princess 2021 World Cruise sailing from North America, including associated segments and remaining voyages sailing immediately prior
- Pacific Princess 2021 Circle South America sailing from Australia, including associated positioning cruises

Guests currently booked on these cancelled voyages will receive a refundable Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 25% of the cruise fare paid. To receive the above FCCs, no action is required by the guest or their travel advisor.

Alternatively, guests can forfeit the bonus FCC offer and request a refund for all money paid on their booking by using this online form. Guests have until September 30, 2020 to elect a refund, or they will automatically receive the default offer listed above.
