It sounds fair to me.

Sorry to hear that.
We only had one Princess cruise cancelled last year in Feb and the refund was quick.

It depends.  I'm really mad at Princess right now because they cancelled an Island Princess repositioning cruise of mine and are slow walking after promising to send me an over 6K refund that they owe me.  I'm now watching to see if two more cruises on the Diamond I've booked are going to be cancelled thus freezing even more of my prepaid money.
"WASHINGTON, July 23 (Reuters) - A federal appeals court late on Friday reversed course and let stand a lower court order prohibiting the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from enforcing coronavirus-related cruise ship rules in Florida."

"A City and Borough of Juneau official confirmed on Monday that one vaccinated person from the cruise ship Celebrity Millennium was found to be infected with COVID-19 over the weekend. The ship is in port in Juneau and is scheduled to be in Skagway Tuesday morning.:

Is there ever going to be a Princess Cruise spreadsheet like in past years?

I realize that due to cancelled cruises it may not be feasible at this time but it made choosing a trip so much easier than browsing through the Princess web site.

"A late-night order from a federal appeals court Saturday dealt a major setback to Florida’s effort to lift restrictions the federal government imposed on the cruise ship industry in order to prevent outbreaks of the coronavirus."
"Cruise lines have found a way around Florida's firm vaccine passport ban, but that doesn't mean unvaccinated passengers should expect equal treatment aboard cruises sailing out of the Sunshine State.

It'll actually be the opposite: unlike their vaccinated counterparts, unvaccinated guests aboard Carnival and Royal Caribbean's Florida cruises will have to pay for travel insurance and COVID-19 tests, but will still be barred from select areas of the ships."

"Starting August 1 through the end of the year, all unvaccinated Royal Caribbean Florida cruise passengers 12-years-old or older will have to show proof of travel insurance. The insurance must have a minimum of $25,000 in medical expense coverage and $50,000 for "quarantine and medical evacuation related to a positive COVID-19 test result" per person."

"On top of insurance payments, unvaccinated cruisers will also have to pay for COVID-19 tests that vaccinated passengers won't need to take, amounting to an additional $136 or $178 payment depending on the sailing duration."

Unvaccinated Carnival guests who don't show proof of the vaccine will not be allowed to board and will not receive a refund. And like Royal Caribbean, Carnival passengers who don't want the jabs will also have to cough up an additional $150 for COVID-19 tests and other "health screening measures."
Good to know.
"Several cruise lines have begun quietly modifying their policies to prohibit those passengers who have been vaccinated with two different types of vaccines."
