The majority of Princess Cruises 2020 Alaska programme has been cancelled and the cruise line has also delayed the launch of Enchanted Princess
Princess Cruises had previously suspended sailings until 10 May, but the cruise line has extended its pause in global operations through 30 June in response to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s decision to impose its “no sail order” for at least a further 100 days.
Jan Swartz shares an update to announce our extended pause through June 30, including the impact on our Alaska season, Enchanted Princess delayed debut, and cancellation options: https://t.co/Jrf8ZqThVp We remain grateful for your support and look forward to brighter days ahead. pic.twitter.com/oq7WNXTNwW
