Princess Cruises has revised the deposit requirements for 2009/2010. The new deposit requirements will be based on a percentage of the cruise or cruisetour fare rather than the current flat fee.
The new deposits will be 30% of the cruise fare for all voyages, except the World Cruise. The deposit for cruisers booking cruisetours will be 25% of the cruisetour fare. The average deposit paid remains basically unchanged, with deposit amounts more proportional to the cruise fare paid. This is more in line with sister company Cunard, and several land based resorts.
