All sailings in Asia, the Caribbean, the California coast, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama Canal, South America and Antarctica, Japan, and Tahiti/South Pacific have been canceled through Dec. 15, 2020.

The Santa Clarita company, a subsidiary of Miami-based Carnival Corp., made the decision due to “the continued progression of COVID- 19 and related decisions of various government, health authorities, and airlines regarding travel restrictions.”

“We share in our guests’ disappointment in cancelling these cruises,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “We look forward to the days when we can return to travel and the happiness it brings to all who cruise.”
