With no end in sight to the coronavirus pandemic tourism continues to take an economic hit, especially the cruise industry.

According to Travel+Leisure, Princess Cruises have cancelled nearly all of their cruises through December in a move following the CDC’s decision to extend its “No-Sail Order” until October.
Travel+Leisure reports Princess Cruises will cancel all sailings in Asia, the Caribbean, the California coast, Hawaii, Mexico, the Panama Canal, South America and Antarctica, Japan, Tahiti and the South Pacific through December 15, 2020.

Cruises scheduled in and out of Australia have been cancelled through October 31, 2020.

“We share in our guests’ disappointment in canceling these cruises,” Jan Swartz, the president of Princess Cruises, said in a statement reported by Travel+Leisure. “We look forward to the days when we can return to travel and the happiness it brings to all who cruise.”
According to the cruise company’s website, “Guests currently booked on these cancelled voyages who have paid Princess in full will have the option to 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.”

“For guests who have not paid in full, Princess will Double the Deposit, providing a refundable FCC for the money currently on deposit plus a matching bonus FCC that can be used on any voyage through May 1, 2022,” the company shared. “The matching bonus FCC is non-refundable, will not exceed the base cruise fare amount of the currently booked cruise, and will have a minimum value of $100 per person.”
