Book with Confidence. Giving you the flexibility to change your plans.
If you feel ill and need to change your plans, Princess protect your cruise investment. Under the temporary Book with Confidence policy, they’ve taken the worry out of booking your next cruise:
For guests booked on a cancelled cruise, Princess will offer to move guests to a choice of an equivalent cruise in 2021 or 2022. The rebooking process will have the added benefit of protecting the guests’ 2021 fare on their replacement cruise. Alternatively, guests can choose a future cruise credit (FCC) equivalent to 100% of the cruise fare paid plus an additional non-refundable bonus FCC equal to 10% of the cruise fare paid (minimum £25) or a full refund to the original form of payment.
While Princess Cruises continues to work with various government and port authorities to finalise its additional plans for return to cruising and due to ongoing international travel restrictions, the company is cancelling the following cruise holidays:
California Coast and Mexico sailings on Ruby Princess through 21 August 2021
Caribbean sailings on Caribbean Princess through 21 August 2021
Remaining 2021 Mediterranean season on Enchanted Princess

Enhancing Health Screenings
Taking steps to implement COVID-19 appropriate pre-embarkation screening, including:
Responsible Physical Distancing
When physical distancing can’t be maintained, or when mandated by public health authorities, masks will be required on board, at private islands, and during shore excursions. Masks must be worn in terminals, during embarkation and disembarkation.
Guests will be encouraged to use the hand-washing sinks and hand sanitiser dispensers at venue entrances and in high-traffic areas throughout the ship. Guests will be asked to follow health information about the ways to stay healthy on board and when ashore through daily programming, entertainment systems, announcements, in-stateroom literature and the Princess app. There will be no self-service for meals. Princess will do the serving for you.
Safe Shoreside Experiences
Princess is working with local authorities, destinations and tour operators so that the enhanced health and safety measures on board are maintained ashore. Princess will follow the health protocols for every port visited. There may be a reduction in the capacity of excursions and tour vehicles. Only shore excursions that comply with prescribed protocols will be permitted, with strict adherence required of all guests and denial of re-boarding for any guests who do not comply.
