Princess Cruises Continues Plans to Resume Cruising in United States with 
 Sailings Departing from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Ft. Lauderdale in the 
                                   Fall 2021 
 
SANTA CLARITA, Calif., June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Following collaboration 
with government officials, and evolving guidance from the U.S. Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Princess is announcing its intent to 
return to service in the United States sailing from Los Angeles, San Francisco, 
and Ft. Lauderdale this fall. 
 
Starting between September 25 and November 28, 2021, cruises onboard eight 
Princess MedallionClassT ships will once again take guests to the Caribbean, 
Panama Canal, Mexico, Hawaii, and the California Coast. 
 
  * Majestic Princess and Grand Princess: Los Angeles once again provides the 
    springboard to a variety of destinations, including the California Coast 
    and Mexico on seven-day cruises, and the Islands of Hawaii on 15-day 
    cruises. Also available are three- to five-day Getaway cruises to the 
    California Coast and Mexico. 
  * Ruby Princess: Sailing out of the iconic Port of San Francisco, Ruby 
    Princess will start with seven-day California Coast cruises before adding 
    15-day cruises exploring four distinct island jewels in Hawaii and 10-day 
    Mexico cruises to the lineup. 
  * Enchanted Princess: Begins with two brand new cruises from Ft. Lauderdale 
    to start her existing inaugural season of 10-day cruises to the Southern 
    and Eastern Caribbean. 
  * Sky Princess, Regal Princess and Caribbean Princess: From Ft. Lauderdale, 
    guests can island hop through the Caribbean with three-, five-, seven- and 
    14-day cruises available in the Eastern Caribbean that visit some of the 
    best-known beaches in the world and the Western Caribbean that allows 
    guests to explore Ancient Mayan Ruins and the beauty of unspoiled coral 
    reefs and underwater caves. 
  * Crown Princess: Travels to the Panama Canal, from Ft. Lauderdale on a 
    series of 10-day cruises to this iconic cruise wonder of the world. 
 
"As we continue our return to service, it is a thrill for us to be able to 
bring more cruise vacation options to our travel-starved guests," said Jan 
Swartz, Princess Cruises president. "We appreciate the support of government 
and port officials who we worked closely with to make these travel 
opportunities available, in a thoughtful and safe way, for our guests." 
 
Dining, entertainment, and shore excursion details are currently being 
finalized and will be communicated in the coming weeks. 
 
Princess cruises sailing through 2021 are available for guests who have 
received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days 
prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination. Crew 
vaccinations will be in accordance with CDC guidelines. 
 
We will continue to monitor the latest guidance from the CDC as well as local, 
state and federal officials in the ports we sail from and those we visit and 
will adjust our on board protocols and vaccination requirements, as necessary. 
Should our vaccination approach change, we would notify guests prior to final 
payment. 
 
CRUISE WITH CONFIDENCE 
As of now and subject to change as CDC guidance, medical, and public health 
guidance evolves, the line's Cruise Health program provides steps to enhance 
public health. Please check regularly, as there will be updates as new 
procedures are finalized and existing protocols may evolve. 
 
Updates to the cruise line's Cruise with Confidence program are also being 
implemented, providing peace of mind for booked guests who may encounter an 
unexpected trip cancellation or interruption due to COVID-19. Guests can cancel 
for any reason up to 30 days before departure and receive a Future Cruise 
Credit for any cancellation fees and a refund of additional funds received to 
the original payment method. As an enhanced benefit, guests may cancel and 
receive the same Future Cruise Credit and refund within 30 days all the way to 
sailing day if they test positive for COVID-19. Full details can be found here. 
 
PRINCESS MEDALLIONCLASS VACATION 
All Princess ships offer TrulyTouchlessT experiences with more ways to support 
physical distancing and personalization that simplifies the guest experience 
and delivers next-level service supporting new health protocols. 
 
The cruise line's award-winning OceanMedallion wearable device replaces the 
traditional cruise card and pairs with embedded IoT ("Internet of things") 
-driven innovative technology to significantly expand touch-free options and 
personalization on board, including: 
 
  * Touchless embarkation and disembarkation 
  * Keyless stateroom entry 
  * Completely contactless commerce 
  * Simplified safety training 
  * On-demand food, beverages and retail items delivered anywhere on board

  * Entertainment content via smart devices 
 
Princess ships offers the best Wi-Fi at sea, MedallionNetT, so guests can stay 
connected to the things and people they love and share vacation memories with 
ease. 
 
These Fall 2021 voyages are open for booking now and will be accessible for 
OceanReady pre-cruise preparations and for making dining reservations on July 
30. 
 
To accommodate this restart, select cruises will be cancelled as well as the 
remaining Europe and Transatlantic season for Island Princess. For 
guests booked on a cancelled cruise, Princess will offer to price protect on a 
replacement voyage. 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 USD) 
 or a full refund to the original form of payment. Requests must be 
received through this online form by July 17, 2021, or guests will 
automatically receive the FCC option. FCCs can be used on any cruises booked by 
and sailing by December 31, 2022.
