Enjoy Some Peace of Mind with Princess Vacation Protection

Life can be unpredictable but you can rely on Princess Vacation Protection

One of the most common questions we hear from our guests is, “Should I buy cruise insurance?” If you want to spend more time relaxing and less time worrying, the answer is yes. Cruise travel insurance offers some peace of mind for travelers. That’s why we offer Princess Vacation Protection (PVP), which provides both a cancellation fee waiver and insurances as a simple way to ease your worries before setting sail.

A: Yes! Princess will refund the cancellation fees (up to the full value of the cruise vacation) if you have to cancel your trip because of a specified reason such as illness, injury or death of yourself, a traveling companion or either of your immediate family members.

Q: : If I have a heart condition and am on continuing medication, am I protected if my heart condition flares up during my vacation?
A: Yes! Princess Vacation Protection provides reimbursement for conditions that are stable during the 60-days prior to purchase, so if you have had no changes in your health (even if you are on continuous unchanged medication), you would be protected.

Q: What if my condition did change prior to purchasing Princess Vacation Protection?
A: Rest assured, emergency evacuation benefits are still provided in the event of a medical emergency. Also, if you cancel your cruise vacation and do not qualify for cash reimbursement due to an unstable medical condition prior to purchase, you will have the benefit of cancel-for-any-reason protection from Princess.

This benefit is provided by Princess Cruises and/or Princess Tours.
