Munich, 10.10.2022

Dear guests and partners,
•    If you, your family members living with you in the same household or traveling companions assigned to the same stateroom, cancel a cruise booking due to testing positive for COVID-19 within 7 days of embarkation, you and those traveling companions assigned to the same stateroom are entitled to an FCC for the amount paid to Princess. To qualify for the FCC, you are required to notify Princess within 24 hours of receiving a positive COVID-19 test result. Guests may be required to provide proof of a positive test prior to building a FCC. 
•    Any close contacts of a confirmed COVID-19 case (those in the same household or traveling companions assigned to the same stateroom) may travel if they are asymptomatic on embarkation day, test negative to an antigen test at embarkation and agree to additional testing up to 5 days from last exposure. Close contacts with a document of recovery are exempt from testing. 

•    If you, your family members, traveling companions or other close contacts are denied embarkation or reboarding, or are isolated or disembarked during the voyage due to a positive COVID-19 test or being suspected of having COVID-19, you are entitled to an FCC for the amount paid to Princess in the event of denial at embarkation, or a pro-rated FCC for the unused portion of your cruise fare in all other cases. 
•    If you are denied embarkation or re-boarding, or are disembarked or quarantined during the voyage, for failure to comply with the Princess COVID-19 Cruise Health Protocols in effect at the time of the cruise, you shall not be entitled to compensation of any kind. 
Thank you for your continued support!
