Yup, and nothing; I check on a daily basis.  I even have my credit cards set on an alert when I get credits to my account and nothing.  I called Princess and asked for an update about my refund and was told that I was somewhere in the processing stage like many other cruisers; she could not tell me if I was in the beginning, middle or end of the line. 

 

But Option 1 wouldn't be on your credit card - it would be in your Captain's Circle Account.

We have $600 in deposits for the three cruises so I am expecting $1200 in FCCs.

Not expecting ANYTHING on my credit card.

We chose Option 1 after our April 4 trip was cancelled by Princess on March 14. We were told that the trip cost would be given as FCCs (175% in our case, long ago received and already partially used), and that the taxes, prepayments etc would be returned to our credit card as we had asked.. That was re-iterated to our TA each time she called to ask the status of the missing refund. Today, when she called again, she was told for the first time that Princess claimed they had Emailed me twice in mid-May asking whether we wanted the money as a proper refund (which we had asked for all along) or as an FCC. I had never received such Emails from Princess, and that's because they used an incorrect Email address. Staying patient....

Has anyone received a refund for the Ruby Princess to ALaska sailing May 23?

I cancelled March 19. I was in the ‘window’ of only forfeiting my deposit as a FCC and requested a refund back to my CC for the full balance.  It has now been 97 days since I cancelled it with no refund.

i was told it would be 60 days, then 60 business days then I was told they were refunding according to cruise date.  But I’ve seen many posts of cruise dates after mine that have already been received.

Ive sailed numerous cruises with a Princess and I’m at the point of saying no more cruise with them.

The following charges associated with my cruise should be refunded to my credit card per Princess:  soda and water packages, excursion, port fees and taxes.

I cancelled on March 6th for a May 12th sailing. I have never gotten my refund from Princess. I lost track of how long it's been now - more than 90 days, for sure...   I DID get most of my money back from a credit card dispute.  I honestly don't think I will ever see anything back from Princess ever... But I am done with them FOREVER...  In a couple of years, we are having our 25th, and may consider a "luxury line" such as Regent, if any line survives...

Good Luck all

So we booked the prior week 5/16/20 on Ruby and cancelled on 3/19/20, before ez-air cancel dates and requested refund except $200 FCC also.  After waiting 90 days called yesterday and told I hadn't requested refund and so it was just sitting there. So asked to speak to a supervisor in customer relations who said she then sent info. to financial department and should see some results soon. 🤣🤣🤣. Im not holding my breath, being patient for these 90 days has been a waste of time. Especially after reading all these dates after my cruise that have been totally refunded. While I still wait for 2 premium balconies to be refunded, along with ez-air, and $3k in shore excursions totally well over $10K. Good Luck to you!

I forget what Pause you are in but your port fees and taxes may go in a holding account unless you ask for a refund.

 

The rest should be refunded to credit card.

Coral, I believe our May Alaska cruise was Pause 2 (April 14th) and our August Alaska cruise was Pause 3 (May 6th).

 

Where will I find the holding account information? 

 

Thanks.

Hi everyone, 

Does anyone know, they process deposit refunds for such a long time as full refunds for the cruise? 

Or when it comes to deposit refund, processing is faster? 

Deposit refunds definitely not faster.  Cancelled our August cruise on March 20 and still waiting for the deposit to be refunded for the 3 of us....  90 days so far.

Hi All.

 

We were booked to sail on Sapphire Princess on 12th May 2020 from Fremantle for a 10 day voyage to the north of Western Australia and return.

We were notified that the cruise was cancelled on 16th of April and we choose to get a refund by filling out the request on the 17th.

An email was received from our travel company that the money would be in our account 23rd of June and the funds were available on the 24th.

 

Regards,

 

Harry W.

Received refund on 6/19 for cancelled shore excursions and EZAir for Alaska cruise scheduled to sail on July 8th.  (Did not call Princess at all to inquire about the status - blind faith worked out this time).

Received today full refund on my credit card for May 30th. 2020, Alaska on Golden Princess round trip from San Pedro Ca.  I chose option 2 on April 14th.

Oh Happy Day's

There's still hope for all that are still waiting for refunds, good luck.

Happy for you --- unfortunately, I have lost faith in the Princess system.

I will have to wait until I am home to look this up. You can't see the holding account - it is just used to hold non-cruise fare items and will transfer to your new booking since FCC can't go to taxes and fees. Or maybe someone will pipe in before I get home.

Thanks Coral, I appreciate it.  Since I have two bookings for 2021 I hope they don't decide on their own which booking they will apply funds.
