Cruise Lines Continue to Push Back Return-to-Sail Dates

Cruise Lines Continue to Push Back Return-to-Sail Dates”

Princess Cruise Lines has announced it's continuing a pause on all guest cruise vacations through at least May 14, 2021.

"As we work towards this goal, we wanted to provide our Kiwi guests with as much certainty as possible and flexibility around their 2021 bookings and an opportunity to reschedule their cruise holiday for 2022 or beyond".

Holland America is also cancelling all Alaska cruises through mid-May, Alaska departures on three ships through early June, any Land+Sea Journeys connected with cancelled Alaska sailings, Mediterranean cruises through early June and Zaandam's Canada/New England itineraries through August. "We continue to prepare our ships for our return to service and we are eager to see our guests back on board to create summertime memories".

Guests now booked on canceled voyages will have the option to receive a refundable future cruise credit equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus representing 25% of that fare.

Guests and their travel agents are being notified of the cancellations and options for Future Cruise Credits (FCCs) and rebooking. Passengers may receive a refund or 125% future cruise credit (you have until May 1, 2022, to book and until December 2022 to sail).

Guests who prefer a 100% refund of monies paid to Holland America Line can visit the Cancellation Preferences Form to indicate their preference no later than February 15, 2021.

Guests with trips booked on Carnival will be able to choose to either get a full refund or credit to be used on future trips, the company said. In what may feel like a case of deja vu, the cruise industry is in the midst of another round of pushbacks on the return to sailing.

Carnival PLC (LON:CCL) said P&O Cruises in New Zealand and Australia have again been delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Princess will protect travel advisor commission on bookings for cancelled cruises that were paid in full in recognition of the critical role they play in the cruise line's business and success.

The most current information and instructions for booked guests affected by these cancellations, and more information on FCCs and refunds, can be found online at Information on Impacted & Cancelled Cruises. The company is part of Carnival Corporation.
