We don’t think finances should affect decisions about your health, so if you feel ill and need to change your plans, we’ll protect your cruise investment. Under our temporary Book with Confidence policy, we’ve taken the worry out of booking your next cruise:

  • Cancel up to 30 days before you sail, and get your cancellation fees back as a Future Cruise Credit1.
    • Applies to voyages departing through September 30, 2022.
    • Applies to bookings made through September 30, 2022.
    • To use the FCCs created as part of this program, book your cruise within a year from the date you received your credit, and sail by September 30, 2023.

  • Book with Confidence only modifies our policy within final payment — the date when balance is due. Outside of final payment, our standard policies2 apply.
1A Future Cruise Credit is like a voucher for a vacation at a later date, the promise of another adventure at sea. FCCs will automatically be applied to your Captain’s Circle account on the bookings cancelled in this time frame. Note, FCCs will not be available instantly and may take up to 60 business days to be processed.
2 Final Payment varies by voyage length. Review our standard policies for cancellations, refunds & final payment for more details.
Book with Confidence
Terms & Conditions
The Book with Confidence offer (“Offer”) is applicable to all Princess Cruise Lines (“Princess”) cruises (excluding charter voyages) and cruisetours departing through September 30, 2022 (“Cruise”) that are booked by September 30, 2022. A guest may cancel their Cruise reservation up to 30 days prior to the Cruise’s departure. To cancel the Cruise reservation, guest must expressly communicate the cancellation to Princess by contacting their Travel Advisor (if a Travel Agent was used to book the cruise) or our Contact Center (“Valid Cancellation”). No-shows at embarkation will not be deemed a Valid Cancellation. For Valid Cancellations no less than 30 days before the sail date, the guest will be entitled to a Future Cruise Credit (“FCC”) for the cancellation fees that are laid out in the standard cancellation policy (available on the Standard Policy for Cancellations, Refunds & Final Payment page). FCCs created as part of this program have a book by date that is one year from the date of creation and a sail by date of September 30, 2023. If a guest does not use their FCC within that time period, it will expire in its entirety and guest will not receive any refund or compensation (including if the guest cancels the subsequent cruise).
Guests eligible for the FCC will receive an FCC worth 100% of the cancellation fee amount, and shall also receive a refund to their original form of payment for the non-cancellation portion of the cruise fare and/or cruisetour fare (as applicable), all taxes, fees, port expenses, and pre-paid onboard experiences. Although Princess cannot give a specific date as to when the refund will be received, typically refunds are processed within 60 days of receipt of the refund request. FCC cannot be used to rebook original Cruise. For North American guests who have purchased Princess Vacation Protection (excluding Quebec and Puerto Rico), Princess may offset the value of the FCC against any amounts the guest collects from Princess Vacation Protection and may do so by removing FCC value from Guest’s account to avoid duplicating refunds and/or FCCs. Guest shall not be entitled to any total FCC and/or refund amount exceeding the amount paid by Guest to Princess for the Cruise. Princess reserves the right to modify or withdraw this Offer at any time.
