Princess Cancels Regal Voyage After Delay

Princess Cruises has announced that a second Regal Princess cruise -- a 10-night South America voyage scheduled to depart on March 1 -- has been canceled. The 70,000-ton, 1,590-passenger ship is undergoing repairs after touching bottom upon departure from Huatulco on February 18.

According to a company statement, the necessary repairs will take longer than Princess had originally hoped. The decision isn't entirely unexpected; earlier this week, after announcing the cancellation of the February 19 Panama Canal sailing, the cruise line indicated that the March 1 cruise could also be impacted -- though exactly how was unknown at that time.

All passengers booked on the March 1 voyage will receive a full refund, including airfare, as well as a future cruise credit equal to 25 percent of the cruise fare paid. For information on compensation offered to guests booked on the February 19 voyage, click here.

Regal Princess is currently on its way to a dry dock for additional work after preliminary repairs. The next sailing, a 12-day South America voyage between Lima and San Juan, is expected to depart as scheduled on March 13.
