Princess Cruises: Japan crisis update

The people of Japan have experienced an unimaginable tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with them in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake, tsunami and damaged nuclear reactors. After careful review of the evolving situation and guided by the U.S. Department of State and other authorities, we have decided to cancel upcoming calls to Japan through May.

This change will impact the following voyages:

Sun Princess S106 (departed March 5)
Diamond Princess M107 (departing March 19)
Ocean Princess 7107 (departing March 20)
Ocean Princess 7108 (departing April 1)
Diamond Princess M108 (departing April 4)
Diamond Princess M109 (departing April 20)
Diamond Princess M110 (departing May 6)

At this time, Ocean Princess 7109 (departing April 13) which has a scheduled call to Okinawa, Japan’s most southern prefecture, is not impacted.

Princess is in the process of contacting affected passengers.


We regret any disappointment our revised itineraries may cause, but we hope our passengers will understand the difficult circumstances that led to these changes, and that the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew is our foremost priority.
