In what probably won't surprise many, Princess quietly announced today that its April 2 cruise, slated to depart from Port Everglades, has been canceled. According to a statement, the line notes that "Following a preliminary assessment over the weekend of the damage to cabins aboard Star Princess resulting from last week's fire, it has been determined that additional out-of- service time is required. We are therefore regretfully canceling the ship's April 2 voyage. "We sincerely apologize to passengers booked on this cruise for any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause. Passengers booked on this sailing will receive a full refund of their cruise and air fare. We will also provide a future cruise credit equal to 25 percent of the cruise fare paid on this cruise." As always, stay tuned for future developments.
