Congratulations, Holly! I received my FCC for this voyage today as well, and so have 2 others I've heard from. Still awaiting all forms of cash: cruise fare refund, OBC refund, and airfare reimbursement. Day 93 since we disembarked.

That is good new, I was also on that cruise. Did you select option 1 or 2?  I picked option 2, but now I don't remember what that actually meant I was supposed to get.  Anybody know What the options for the World Cruise mean?

Caribbean Princess sailing March 21

Cancelled by Princess March 12

Completed Refund request March 16---Option2

FCC's credited on my circle savings account over 6 weeks ago.

FCC's amount changed about 3 weeks ago at which point received e-mail from Princess stating they were available.

They  automatically applied some of the FCC's to a booking I have for March 2021 ( I neither requested nor expected this)and I have some additional FCC's listed as "active".  

The math for the FCC's does not compute and still nothing refunded to the credit card ( waiting for refund on taxes, port fees and pre-paid gratuities).

I also have a booking for a cruise sailing January 2, 2021.  Found it interesting that the FCC's they applied to a future cruise were for the March 2021 sailing and not the Jan 2021 one.  Are they perhaps thinking of extending the No- sailing date even further???Still hopeful this will be resolved soon, but thoroughly frustrated and dissatisfied with the process.

Like someone said earlier "crickets"!!!

We were booked on a 28-night cruise departing May 30. We cancelled on Mar 15, when our cancellation penalty was 50% that should have been refunded as FCC. We started the CC dispute process through Chase on May 1 for the final payment, which could be done online. That was resolved in about two weeks. We then disputed the deposit and two shore excursions, which required a call but no other documentation. The shore-ex resolved in a week, and the deposit resolved in about four weeks. We ended up with all of our money back and no FCC.

We had a great weekend, Princess Credit-wise. I'm not sure when the FCC's were deposited back into our account from our cancelled Alaska cruise, but they showed up Friday!! I had stopped doing my daily checks because it was too depressing. Then on Sunday, there was a credit pending for our pre-purchased items on the AMEX- our specialty dining and things for the room. Today they show as posted on Friday, but the credits were not pending Friday or Saturday. So that's weird.  I am happy they came through as I got worried when the cruise dropped off from my upcoming cruises and all I had was my printed Travel Summary. 

Now waiting on our cancelled September cruise. I know some people have a lot of cruises they are waiting on for credits. I just wanted to share that Princess is slowly moving through the refund process.

Good to see that more cruisers are finally receiving refunds, FCC's, etc.  Congrats to those that have gotten their money back and hoping the rest of you waiting will soon see positive results coming your way.

 

We still await FCC's for our May 17th cruise, but at least received the bulk of our refunds/FCC's that we were expecting.

 

Everyone hang in there!

Previous FCCs posts have said sail by 5/1/22. Book by is a big improvement.

When was the email - we heard from them  on  Wed 10 June and received a Chq on the 12 June - maybe we just hit lucky with a chq run. If the email has been some time back I would chase it up.  We were not on your cruise.

Glad to hear you have received your promised cheque, we had an email from Anna Barnes, Guest Services on 11th June, saying that the cheque has been requested and will be sent in due course.  I feel yet another telephone call coming on.... I would like this refund to be sorted as we have a cruise booked for November which I expect will be cancelled as its due to go to Australia. At the moment I am chasing two P &O cruises, one Hollandamerica cruise and this Princess one.

From the frying pan into the fire...

 

Got most of our refund from Princess (missing about $350) back on 3 cards. We had filed disputes on all 3 cards.  It was a large amount and now we are having some trouble getting 2 of the cards to pay us back. 

 

One card (Bank of America) sent a check and it was received only 5 days after we asked for it.  Good for them, now my new favorite card. 

 

Citi Double Cash is waiting 3 more weeks before they issue a credit back to my checking account. 

 

Capital One, although they got the credit from Princess, will not issue my refund until Princess responds to the dispute.  Stupid - and it might result in a double credit for us since right now the account shows a double credit balance.  Wouldn't that be nice?

 

Anyone else have these issues?

Here's the last of the 3 different letters they gave us onboard, which shows the final compensation offer.

Thanks! 

 

Looks like the FCCs has been credited to our accounts.  

 

Now to wait for the cash: 

- Refunds in amount equal to FCC

- Onboard account balance return ( which is quite large due to cancelled excursions)

- Travel expenses submitted in April for baggage and meals on way to US from Australia

My double credit from Chase disappeared after about a week. I have not asked for a refund yet.

Apparently, it varies. Here's mine:

Interesting but not surprising about the variation.  Maybe it varies by the pause?  My cruise was in pause 1 and was to sail on May 9.  Or maybe it's something typed by the person processing the FCC?  I would think they would have a dropdown pre-filled with explanations from which to choose but this thing has been so bizarre that typed reasons would not be out of the realm of possibility.  Or maybe I should stop trying to determine a rhyme or reason to this whole process when there is none?

Got all of my refunds today- over 9k.  Sail date was June 13th to Alaska on the Ruby, canceled by Princess on 4/14 I think.  So glad I didn't have to wait as long as others had.  Just wanted to post to give some people hope, all of the amounts look correct- even got the water bottle and massage refunds today as well.

I wish mine just said "book by". It says: Book By 05/01/22 and Sail By 05/01/22
