Here are the details posted by the cruise line on Majestic Princess which is one of the newest ships in the fleet and purpose-built for the Asian market:

“Our team continues working to finalize itinerary changes and to communicate these changes to you as soon as the details are confirmed.”

“Due to current port restrictions and closures and lack of predictability regarding port availability in our Southeast Asia itineraries going forward, we have made the decision to cancel additional Asia voyages on Sapphire Princess and Majestic Princess. All booked guests will receive a full refund, back to the original form of payment, of their cruise fare, Princess Air, pre- and post-cruise hotel packages, prepaid shore excursions and other prepaid items, and taxes, fees, and port expenses. As these cruises have been cancelled so close to departure, each guest will also receive a Future Cruise Credit.”

“We will provide complete details to all guests booked on impacted voyages via email and Cruise Personalizer.”
